Question 1 :seemed to have some error. (Dennis sold 153 more coupons than the total number of coupons

than the total number of coupons sold by Dennis was 685 more than Bala.)-- Not clear.

Question 2:

Left Bus stop A -----X + 10=A

Left Bus stop B -----1/4 A

Left Bus stop C -----(1/3 x 1/4A) + 3 = 18

(1/3 x 1/4A) + 3 = 18
1/12A + 3 = 18
1/12A = 18-3=15
A = 15 x 12 = 180

Left interchange = 180 - 10 = 170 passeners ( answer)
