Answer: Option A

Solution(By Examveda Team)

$$\eqalign{ & \Rightarrow P\left[ {{{\left( {\frac{{21}}{{20}}} \right)}^3} - 1 - \frac{3}{{20}}} \right] = 122 \cr & \Rightarrow P\left[ {\frac{{{{21}^3} - {{20}^3} - 3 \times {{20}^2}}}{{{{20}^3}}}} \right] = 122 \cr & \Rightarrow P\left[ {\frac{{9261 - 8000 - 1200}}{{8000}}} \right] = 122 \cr & \Rightarrow P \times \frac{{61}}{{8000}} = 122 \cr & \Rightarrow P = \frac{{8000 \times 122}}{{61}} \cr & \Rightarrow P = {\text{Rs}}{\text{.}}\,16000 \cr} $$
