Solution(By Apex Team)

$\begin{array}{l}\text{According to the question,}\\ \text{ Pocket money }\\ \Rightarrow\frac{A+B+C}{3}=80\\ \Rightarrow A+B+C=240\\ \text{Unspent pocket money}\\ \Rightarrow\frac{A+B+C}{3}=60\\ \Rightarrow A+B+C=180\\ \text{Spent pocket money }\\ =240-180\\ =\text{Rs.}\ 60\\ \text{Given:}\\ \frac{B}{A}=\frac{2}{1}\text{ and }\frac{C}{A}=\frac{3}{1}\end{array}$ So, A ,B and C spent 1, 2 and 3 units respectively. $\begin{array}{l}\text{Total spent A, B C = 6 units}\\ \text{6 units ——– 60}\\ \text{1 unit ——— 10}\\ \text{∴ A spent = 1 × 10 = Rs. 10}\end{array}$
