I have been asked this question by my college director while I was bunking the class.

The above asked question is from Age/Money/Denomination of Currency Word Problems topic in section Linear Equations in One Variable of Mathematics – Class 8

Right option is B. 23 rupees

For explanation: Let the amount received by the girl from the shopkeeper be x rupees.

∴ 27+x=50

∴ x=50-27

∴ x=23.
