 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(A) is correct

Let the cost of each orange, apple and banana be $o, a$ and $b$ respectively.
Given, 

$2(o)+3a+5b=40$ -------- (i)

$3(o)+5a+9b=64$-------- (ii)

From 2(i) - (ii):

$⇒ o+a+b=16$

I would give u some easy guessing that in two of the purchases the difference is Rs.24/-, So for 24 rupees he got 1 orange, 2 apples, 4 bananas so clearly it should be less than Rs.24/-. So from the options it would be Rs. 16/-
