| Mr A had some amount. Of this he loses 32.5% in Poker. From the balance, someone stole the sum of Rs. 1 lakh that he used to keep in his pocket. Of the rest, he donated 20% to a charitable institution. Further he purchased a ment for Rs. 7.5 lakh. He then realised that he was left with only Rs. 2.5 lakh cash. What was the amount he initially had?

A. 25 Lakh

B. 24 Lakh

C. 20 Lakh

D. 28 Lakh

### Right Answer is: C

#### SOLUTION

In these type of questions, we should follow reverse system

After donation Mr A had an amount of Rs. 10 lakhs (2.5 lakh + 7.5 lakh)

This is equal to 80% of the amount he had before donation.

So the amount before donation = = 12.5 lakh

So amount after his loss in poker = 13.5 lakhs (12.5 lakh + 1 lakh)

This is equal to 67.5% of the amount he had initially.

So the amount he initially had = = 20 lakh
