A. 5 kg

B. 15 kg

C. 25 kg

D. 30 kg

Answer: Option C

Solution(By Examveda Team)

Let Rs. 100 be spend on rice initially for 20 kg.
As the price falls by 20%, new price for 20 kg rice,
= (100 - 20% of 100) = 80
New price of rice = $$\frac{{80}}{{20}}$$ = Rs. 4 per kg.
Rice can bought now at = $$\frac{{100}}{{4}}$$ = 25 kg.
