 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(D) is correct

Let the total expenditure be Rs. $x$ crores.

Then, 15% of $x = 2.10$
⇒ $x = \left(2.10 × \dfrac{100}{15}\right) = 14$

Total expenditure = Rs. 14 crores
and so, the difference between the expenditures on transport and taxes:

= Rs. [(12.5 - 10)% of 14] crores
= Rs. [2.5% of 14] crores
= Rs. 0.35 crores
= Rs. 35 lakhs
