    Answer: (2) 1
    Explanation:-
    999x + 888y = 1332
    divide by 111 from both side,
    9x + 8y = 12         ………………………………… (1)
    Again,
    888x + 999y = 555
    divide by 111 from both side,
    Then, 8x + 9y = 5                        …………………….. (2)
    Solve equation (1) & (2)
    x = 4 & y = -3
    Then, x + y = 4 + (-3) = 4 – 3 = 1
    Hence, the answer is (2) 1.
