Total Expenditure for first 5 months = 120 *5 = 600

Total expenditure for last 7 months = 130 * 7 = 910.

Total expenditure = 600 + 910 = 1510

savings = 290.

Expenditure + savings = total earnings

1510 + 290 = 1800

Average income = 1800 / 12 = 150.

total expense = 120*5 + 130*7 = 1510
and savings ; 290
total salary = 1510+290; 1800
avg = 1800/12 ; 150 IMO B
