Original weight on Nov'73 = m

During Nov to April Wt reduces by 100 so effect will be -100

During Apr to Nov Wt triples so = 3*Wt on Apr.

Ans would be 9m-1300. Option A

E. m−1300


Nov ' 73 = m
April ' 74 = m - 100
Oct ' 74 = 3m - 300
April' 75 = 3m - 400
Oct' 75 = 9m - 1200
April'76 = 9m - 1300

Hence answer will be (A) 9m - 1300

We need to closely look at the months in order to come up with an answer.

The weight in Nov'73 = m
weight in April'74 = m - 100
Weight in Oct'74 = 3m - 300
Wight in April'75 = 3m-300 - 100 = 3m - 400
Weight in Oct'75 = 9m - 1200
Weight in April'76 = 9m-1200 - 100 = 9m - 1300

Correct Option: A
