    Answer: (1) Rs.20,000
    Explanation:-
    Let be the  price of scooter & T. V. =  7 X & 5 X
    According to the question,
    7 X  –  5 X = 8,000
    2 X = 8000
    X = 8000/2
    X = Rs.4000
    Then, the price of T V set = 5 X = 5 x 4000
    = Rs.20,000
    Hence, the price of a TV set = 4000 x 5
    = Rs.20,000
