An old woman had the following assets:

(a) Rs.70 lakh in bank deposits
(b) 1 house worth Rs.50 lakh
(c) 3 flats, each worth Rs.30 lakh
(d) Certain number of gold coins, each worth Rs.1 lakh

She wanted to distribute her assets among her three children; Nishi, Sweety and Gayatri. The house, any of the flats or any of the coins were not to be split. That is, the house went entirely to one child; a flat went to one child and similarly, a gold coin went to one child.

Q. 1 Among the three, Nishi received the least amount in bank deposits, while Gayatri received the highest. The value of the assets was distributed equally among the children, as were the gold coins. How much did Sweety receive in bank deposits (in lakhs of rupees)?

Q. 2 Among the three, Nishi received the least amount in bank deposits, while Gayatri received the highest. The value of the assets was distributed equally among the children, as were the gold coins. How many flats did Nishi receive?


Additional Information:
The value of the assets distributed among Nishi, Sweety and Gayatri was in the ratio of 1 : 2 : 3, while the gold coins were distributed among them in the ratio of 2 : 3 : 4. One child got all three flats and she did not get the house. One child, other than Gayatri, got Rs.30 lakh in bank deposits.

Q. 3 How many gold coins did the old woman have?

Q.4 How much did Gayatri get in bank deposits (in lakhs of rupees)?

Q.5 What is the ratio of the amount Nishi, Sweety and Gayatri get in their bank deposits?

(1) 2 : 2 : 3
(2) 2 : 3 : 2
(3) 3 : 2 : 2
(4) Cannot be determined
