    Answer: (a) Rs. 14899.5

    Solution:-
    Savi bought 2709 kg of fresh at the rate of Rs. 27 per kg.
    Then, Total cost price of fresh fish = 2709 x 27
    = Rs. 73143

    When fresh fish is dried, it becomes one-third its weight.
    Then, weight of dried fish = 2709
    = 903 kg

    She sold dried fish = Rs. 97.5 per kg
    Therefore, the selling price of dried fish 903 kg = 903 x 97.5
    = Rs. 88042.5

    Profit = 88042.5 – 73143
    = 14899.5

    She earned in all is Rs. 14899.5.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (a) Rs. 14899.5
