Once you attempt the question then PrepInsta explanation will be displayed.

The person can buy 50 oranges or 40 mangoes.

Let the price of one orange be Rs. *x*

Total amount the person has = Rs. 50*x*

40 mangoes cost 50*x*, So one mango costs 1.25*x*

10% of the total amount is retained for taxi fare = 10% of 50*x* = 5*x*

20 mangoes bought for 20 x 1.25*x* = 25*x*

Money left with Hugh Jackman = 50*x* – (Taxi fare) – (Mangoes cost)

= 50*x* – 5*x* – 25*x *= 20*x*

One Orange was for Rs. *x*, Therefore, 20 oranges can be bought with Rs. *20 x*

Thus, the person bought 20 oranges.
