Solution(By Apex Team)

 
Let P, Q and R represent their respective monthly incomes. Then, we have: P + Q = (5050 x 2) = 10100 …. (i) Q + R = (6250 x 2) = 12500 …. (ii) P + R = (5200 x 2) = 10400 …. (iii) Adding (i), (ii) and (iii), we get: 2(P + Q + R) = 33000 or P + Q + R = 16500 …. (iv) Subtracting (ii) from (iv), we get P = 4000 Therefore P’s monthly income = Rs. 4000
