A) Rs. 80 B) Rs. 120
C) Rs. 70 D) Rs. 100

Answer:   A) Rs. 80



Explanation:

The servant worked for 9 days instead of 12 days, he should receive 9/12 of his total payment

Let the price of 1 shirt be Rs. S 

i.e., 3/4 (400 + S).

However, the question states that the servant receive Rs. 280 + S where S is the price of the shirt.

By equating the two equations we get 3/4 (400 + S) = 280 + S.

Therefore, Price of the shirt S = Rs. 80.
