Solution

The correct option is C

₹ 200


Let the cost price of one shirt be x and other be y.

x + y = 480 ........ (i)

85x = 119y .........(ii)

x = 11985 y

putting value of x in equation (i) we get :

11985 y + y = 480

y = 480×85204

y =  200

The price of shirt x will  be greater than ₹ 200 since the sum is  480.

The price of the lower priced shirt = ₹ 200
