Solution

The correct option is B ₹85,000
Cost of the first 3 pieces of land = ₹(3 + 3 + 3) lakhs = ₹9 lakhs
Commission paid to the broker = 5% of ₹9 lakhs = ₹45,000
Cost of the next 2 pieces of land = ₹(10+10) lakhs ​= ₹20 lakhs
Commission paid to the broker = 2% of ₹20 lakhs = ₹​​​​​40,000
Total commission earned by the broker = ₹45000 + ₹40000 = ₹85,000
