Sonu has 5 dozen toffies. He gave 1/3 of these to Amit. 2/5 of these to Anil and 1/12 of these to Hamid. The number of toffees left with Sonu is :

(a) 9

(b) 11

(c) 5

(d) 7

**Answer: (b) 11**

**Solution:-**

Sonu has 5 dozen toffies,

The number of toffies in 5 dozen = 12 x 5

= 60

He gave 1/3 of these to Amit = 60/3

= 20,

He gave 2/5 of these to Anil = 60 x 2/5

= 24,

He gave 1/12 of these to Hamid = 60/12

= 5,

The number of toffies left with Sonu = 60 – (20 + 24 + 5)

= 60 – 49

= 11

Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 11.
