**Q.**

The cost of 3 books and 5 notebooks is Rs 250, while the cost of 4 books and 4 notebooks is Rs 280.

If the cost of a book is represented by x and the cost of a notebook is represented by y, then which set of equations represents the given information?

3x + 5y = 250 4x + 4y = 280

5x + 4y = 250 3x + 4y = 280

4x + 5y = 250 4x + 3y = 280

5x + 3y = 250 4x + 4y = 280
