    Answer: (3) Rs.6300

    Explanation:-
    The ratio of the weekly income of Sohan and Surendra = 7 : 3
    Then, Let the  weekly income of Sohan = 7 X  & the weekly income of Surendra = 3 X

    According to the question,
    (7 X – 300) / (3 X- 300) = 5/ 2
    BY cross multiplication.
    2 x 7 X – 2 x 300 = 5 x 3 X – 5 x 300
    14 X – 600 = 15 X – 1500
    15 X – 14 X = 1500 – 600
    X = 900
    Then, the weekly income of Sohan is 7 X = 7 x 900
    = Rs.6300

    Hence, the answer is (3) Rs.6300.
