**Common solution for the set:**

**Step 1**: The woman who spent Rs. 2234 arrived before the woman who spent Rs. 1193. One of them spent Rs. 1340 and she was not Dipika. One of them spent Rs. 2517 and she was not Arohi.

2234, 1193 is the order

**Step 2**: One woman spent Rs. 1378 more than Chand. Hetal spent more than Dipika. Sunanda spent the largest amount and Chand the smallest.
Hetal>Dipika
Available spent money:1193, 1340, 2234, 2517

2234, 1193

**Case 1**: 1193 is smallest amount.
2234 rs. should be spend by arohi.1340 should be paid by Hetal which is not the case. So option 1 should be rejected

**Case 2**: 2517 is largest amount.
Hetal spent more than Dipika so 2234 has to be spent by Arohi

Therefore the two cases are: (i) The lowest amount spent is Rs. 1193 (by Chand): Then, the fifth amount will be Rs.(1193 + 1378) = Rs. 2571, which will then be the highest amount and is spent by Sunanda. As Arohi arrived before Chand, so she must have spent Rs.2234. This implies Hetal spent Rs.2517 and Dipika spent Rs.1340, which is a contradiction. Hence, this case is not possible. (ii) The highest amount spent is Rs.2517 (by Sunanda): Then the fifth amount will be Rs.(2517 – 1378) = Rs.1139. Since it is the lowest amount, it will be spent by Chand. Further analysis leads to the following table:

**Answer 1: (A)**
The amount is 1139.
Hence option (A) is correct.

**Answer 2: (B)**
Hetal spent Rs. 1340.
Hence option (B) is correct.

**Answer 3: (C)**
The lady who spent Rs. 1193 is Dipika.
Hence option (C) is correct.
