- Rs 2700
- Rs 2400
- Rs 1600
- Rs 1800

Option 4 : Rs 1800

**Given:**

Expense value of family on electricity = 75

Amount spent on electricity = Rs. 2250

**Calculation:**

Let the expenses of family be in units

According to the question

75 units = Rs. 2250

⇒ 1 unit = Rs. 30

Now, Difference in expenses of family on rent and food = 240 - 180

⇒ 60 units

Difference in amount on rent and food = 60 × 30

⇒ Rs. 1800

**∴ Difference between amount spent on rent and food is Rs. 1800.**
