 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(E) is correct

Expenditure on entertainment:

$= \text{20% of (35% of others)}$ $= \text{7% of the total expenses}$

$⇒ 2100= 7%$ of total expenses

Also education accounts for 20% of the total expenses.

⇒ Expenditure on education:

= 20% of the total = Rs $\left[2100×\dfrac{20}{7}\right]$

$= \textbf{Rs.  6,000}$
