Option 1 : Rs. 35376

**Given: **

Total amount Mr Nick received = Rs. 589600

Share of wife = 50%

Share of daughter = 40% of remaining

Share of sons (each) = 40% of remaining

Donated amount = Remaining amount

**Calculations:**

Share of wife = 589600 × 50 / 100 = Rs. 294800

Remaining amount = (589600 - 294800) = Rs. 294800

Share of daughter = 294800 × 40 / 100 = Rs. 117920

Remaining amount = (294800 - 117920) = Rs. 176880

Share of each son = 176880 × 40 / 100 = Rs. 70752

So, share of 2 sons = 2 × 70752 = Rs. 141504

Donated amount = (Remaining amount - share of sons) = (175880 - 141504)

⇒ Rs. 35376

**∴**** The amount donated by Mr Nick is Rs. 35376**
