Answer: (1) Rs. 16, 250
Explanation:-
The ratio of property between son and wife = 3 : 1
And,  the ratio of property between wife and daughter = 3 : 1
Therefore,   The ratio of property among the son, wife  & daughter = 3 x 3 : 3 x 1 : 1 x 1
= 9 : 3 : 1
Then, Let be the pat of son, wife & daughter in property = 9X, 3X & X
Part of son – part of daughter  = Rs.10,000
Then,   9X – X = 10, 000
8X = 10, 000
X = 10,000/8
X = 1250
Thus, the whole property = 9X + 3X + X = 9 x 1250 + 3 x 1250 + 1250
= Rs.16,250
Hence, the answer is (1) Rs.16, 250.
