The total amount of money that she had saved at the end of the year was 3 times the amount of that portion of her monthly take-home pay that she did NOT save.

And she did not save 9 per month where she received 12 then 3x9=27 but according to your calculation she saved 36 and not 27. that means C can't be the answer unless i'm completely wrong.

alice's every month take home pay = 12 (just picking random suitable number)

alice saves per month=12*(1/4)=3

alice does not save per month = 9

1 year =12 months

so for the whole year she save = 3*12=36

so for the whole year alice didnot save =9*12 =108
