    Answer: (2) 50%

    Solution:-
    Let the original income=Rs.100 .
    Then , expenditure=Rs.75 and savings =Rs.25

    New income =Rs.120 , New expenditure => Rs.((110/100) x 75)=Rs.165/2

    New savings = Rs.(120-(165/2)) = Rs.75/2

    Increase in savings = Rs.((75/2)-25)=Rs.25/2

    Increase %= ((25/2) x (1/25) x 100)% = 50%.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (2) 50%.
