1. After buying 2 erasers at Rs. 10 each, Akram has Rs. 3 left. How much amount did he have at first?
(a) 20 (b) 22
(c) 23 (d) 26
Cost of one eraser = Rs. 10
Cost of two erasers = \[10\times 2=20\]

(c) 26 (d) 28
Total number of chocolates Sania has = 12
Suraj has \[=12\times 1/4=3\]
Ridhima has = 3 + 8 = 11
Total chocolates =12+3+11= 26
