Solution

## The correct option is B 162 From the given question, The price of 1 kg of onion is 60 x 0.9 = 54 Now, the price of onions is directly proportional to the weight of onions. The weight of onions and potatoes are equal. The price of potatoes is proportional to the weight of potatoes. Hence, 60180 = 1w = 54x Here, w represents the weight of the potatoes or onions, and x represents the equivalent price of onions. x is the quantity we need to find out. Therefore, by solving, we get x = Rs. 162.
