Four persons, Alok, Bhupesh, Chander and Dinesh have a total of ` 100 among themselves. Alok and Bhupesh between them have as much money as Chander and Dinesh between them, but Alok has more money than Bhupesh; and Chander has only half the money that Dinesh has. Alok has in fact ` 5 more than Dinesh has. Who has the maximum amount of money ?

a) Chander

b) Alok

c) Bhupesh

d) Dinesh

Answer: (b)

a + b + c + d = 100

Also, a + b = c + d = 50

c = $d/2, ∴ d/2 + d$ = 50 ⇒ d = 33.3

∴ d > c

Also, a > b & between a and d, a = d + 5

∴ a > d

∴ Alok (b) has the maximum money.
