Question: What is the total monthly salary of Vasu ?

Statements:

1. Vasu's basic salary is Rs 100 more than Rajan's salary who also serves in Vasu's company.
2. Other allowances drawn by Rajan besides his basic salary are Rs 2000 per month which is Rs 50 less than Vasu's salary.
3. Rajan's basic salary is Rs 1550 per month,

Only II
Only II and III
Only I and II
Only I and III
All I, II and III
Explanation:

From III, we have: Rajan's basic salary = Rs. 1550.

From I, we have: Vasu's basic salary = Rs. (1550 + 100) = Rs. 1650.

From II, we have: Rajan's other allowances = Rs. 2000 and Vasu's other allowances = Rs. 2050.

Therefore Vasu's monthly salary = Rs. (1650 + 2050) = Rs. 3700.

Yes, option 2 is the right one.

As Sheik said, Option II states "Other allowances drawn by Rajan besides his basic salary are Rs 2000 per month which is Rs 50 less than Vasu's salar" and does not state that it is Vasu's allowance.
