    Answer: (4) 120
    Explanation:-
    Let the number is X
    According to the question,
    X – 56  = X x 86/100
    X – 56 = 43 X/50
    X – 43 X /50 = 56
    50 X – 43 X  = 56 x 50
    7 X = 56 x 50
    X = 8 x 50
    X = 400
    Then, 30 % of 400 = 400 x 30/100
    = 4 x 30
    = 120
    Hence, the answer is (4) 120.
