**Common Information**

The following pie chart represents the break-up of Raju’s monthly Expenses.

Q. |
Raju spent 20% of his expenditure on ‘others’ on entertainment. This amounted to Rs 2100. Find his expenditure on education. |

✖ A. |
4,500 |

✖ B. |
5,000 |

✖ C. |
6,500 |

✖ D. |
7,500 |

✔ E. |
None of these |

**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 $\left[2100×\dfrac{20}{7}\right]$

$= \textbf{Rs. 6,000}$
