#### Solution

Money invested = Rs 35,000

For 'Lak me' shares:

Market value = Rs 40

Amount invested = Rs 6,000

Income from investment = 6/40 xx 6000 = Rs 900

For 'Volta' shares:

Market Value = Rs 125

Amount invested = Rs 15,000

Income from investment = 8/125 xx "Rs" 15000 = Rs 960

For 'BPL' shares:

Market value = Rs x

Amount invested = Rs (35,000-6,000-15,000) = Rs 14,000

Income from investment = Rs 12/x xx 14000 = Rs 168000/x

Total investment from shares = Rs 900 + Rs 960+Rs 168000/x

Pramod wants  8 1/7 % return on his investment = 57/7 %

57/(100 xx 7) xx  "Rs"  35000 = Rs 2850

Therefore, Rs 2,850 - Rs 900 + Rs 960 + Rs 168000/x

Rs 990 x - Rs 1,68, 000 x = Rs 169.69 = Rs 170

Hence, Pramod bought BPL shares at Rs 170 per share.
