Explanatory Answer

He is left with Rs. 2.5 lakh after spending Rs. 7.5 lakh on the apartment. Therefore, before the apartment purchase, he has Rs. 10 lakhs.

But this is after the 20% reduction in his net value due to his donation to charity. Hence, he must have given Rs. 2.5 lakh to charity (20% decrease corresponds to a 25% increase).

As such, he had 12.5 lakh before the charity. Further, he must have had Rs. 13.5 lakh before the money was stolen.

Lottery amount (1- 32.5/100) = 13.5 Lakhs

Lottery amount = 20 Lakhs
