    B)

    (i) (ii)
    15 1392
                   

    C)

    (i) (ii)
    1382 20

    D)

    (i) (ii)
    1392 20

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

              Let \[\text{Rs}\text{. }{{\text{x}}_{\text{2}}}\] be paid in the month of June.
    Amount paid (x) (in Rs.) \[{{\text{x}}_{1}}=139.20\] \[{{\text{x}}_{\text{2}}}\]
    No. of days (y) \[{{\text{y}}_{1}}=3\] \[{{y}_{2}}=30\]
    Since, it is a case of direct proportion. \[\therefore \frac{{{x}_{1}}}{{{y}_{1}}}=\frac{{{x}_{2}}}{{{y}_{2}}}\Rightarrow \frac{139.20}{3}=\frac{{{x}_{2}}}{30}\] \[\Rightarrow {{x}_{2}}=\frac{139.20\times 30}{3}\Rightarrow {{x}_{2}}=1392\]. Thus, Rs. 1392 will be paid in the month of June. (ii) Let \[{{y}_{2}}\] be the number of days he will work for Rs. 696.
    Amount paid (x) (in Rs.) \[{{x}_{1}}=139.20\] \[{{x}_{2}}=696\]
    No. of days (y) \[{{y}_{1}}=3\] \[{{y}_{2}}\]
    It is a case of direct proportion. \[\therefore \frac{139.20}{3}=\frac{696}{{{y}_{2}}}\Rightarrow {{y}_{2}}=\frac{696\times 3\times 10}{1392}\] \[\Rightarrow {{y}_{2}}=15\] Thus, he will work 15 days for Rs. 696.
