Say in Re. 1 he buys bread Type / Quantity as shown Rupees ............ X ...................... Y 1 ................... \(\frac{2}{3}\) ....................... \(\frac{5}{4}\) (Quantity) To buy 3/2 Quantity of Bread X, amount required \(= \frac{\frac{3}{2}}{\frac{2}{3}} = \frac{9}{4}\) Bread obtained in Rupees 9/4\(= \frac{9}{4} * \frac{5}{4} = \frac{45}{16}\) Answer = C

Regards, Vardhaman \(1\frac{1}{2} = \frac{3}{2}\) \(\frac{2}{3}\) quantity of X comes in Re. 1, so \(\frac{3}{2}\) would come in \(1 * \frac{3}{2} * \frac{3}{2} = \frac{9}{4}\) \(\frac{9}{4}\) is the amount available in hand to purchase Bread Y

\(\frac{2}{3}\)x = \(\frac{5}{4}\)y
\(\frac{3}{2}\)x = ??
\(\frac{2}{3}\) * x = \(\frac{3}{2}\)
x = \(\frac{9}{4}\)
\(\frac{5}{4}\) * \(\frac{9}{4}\) = \(\frac{45}{16}\) = 2\(\frac{13}{10}\)
Answer: C
