    Answer: (d) 200 

    Solution:-
    Let the number be X

    According to the question, 
    X x 60/100 – 60 = 60 
    3 X/5 – 60 = 60 
    3 X – 300 = 60 x 5
    3 X = 300 + 300
    3 X = 600
    X = 600/3
    X = 200

    Then, the number is 200. 

    Hence, the correct answer is option (d) 200.
