__Solution(By Apex Team)__

Let a, b, and c be the annual incomes of Ramesh, Suresh, and Pratap, respectively.
Now, we are given that
The arithmetic mean of the annual incomes of Ramesh and Suresh was Rs. 3800.
Hence,
$\begin{array}{l}\Large\frac{a+b}{2}=\small3800\\
\Rightarrow a+b=2\times3800=7600\end{array}$
The arithmetic mean of the annual incomes of Suresh and Pratap was Rs. 4800.
Hence,
$\begin{array}{l}\Large\frac{b+c}{2}=\small4800\\
\Rightarrow b+c=2\times4800=9600\end{array}$
The arithmetic mean of the annual incomes of Pratap and Ramesh was Rs. 5800.
Hence,
$\begin{array}{l}\Large\frac{c+a}{2}=\small5800\\
\Rightarrow c+a=2\times5800=11,600\end{array}$
Adding these three equations yields:
(a + b) + (b + c) + (c + a) = 7600 + 9600 + 11,600
2a + 2b + 2c = 28,800
a + b + c = 14,400
The average of the incomes of the three equals the sum of the incomes divided by 3,
$\begin{array}{c}\Large\frac{\mathrm{a}+\mathrm{b}+\mathrm{c}}{3}\\
=\Large\frac{14,400}{3}\\
=\mathrm{Rs}.4800\end{array}$
