Solution

## The correct option is A 28918kgTotal weight of three boxes =6012kg. Let weight of box A = x kg. Then weight of box B=(x+312)kg. and weight of box C = (x+312+513)kg. ∴ According to the condition, x+(x+312)+(x+312+513)=6012 ⇒x+x+72+x+72+163=1212 ⇒3x+(72+72+163) ⇒3x=1212−(72+72+163) ⇒3x=363−(21+21+32)6=363−746 ⇒3x=2896 ⇒x=2896×3=28918kg. ∴ Weight to Box A=28918kg
