### Solution(By Apex Team)

Average monthly income of P and Q = Rs. 6000 Average monthly income of Q and R = Rs. 5250 Average monthly income of P and R = Rs. 5500 Total income of P + Q = 2 × 6000 = Rs. 12000…..(i) Total income of Q + R = 2 × 5250 = Rs. 10500…..(ii) Total income of R + P = 2 × 5500 = Rs. 11000…..(iii) On adding equation (i) (ii) and (iii), we have 2 (P + Q + R) = 12000 + 10500 + 11000 ⇒ P + Q + R $\Large=\frac{33500}{2}$ ⇒ P + Q + R = Rs. 16750…..(iv) By equation (iv) – (ii) P’s monthly income = Rs. (16750 – 10500) = Rs. 6250
