Let average monthly income of Mr Roy be M, of wife be W and of daughter be D.
     M + W = Rs 5, 050      -- eq 1
    W + D = Rs 6, 250       -  eq  2
    M + D = Rs 5, 200       -- eq  3

     Subtract equation 1  from eq 2 ,  D - M = Rs 1, 200

  Add this to eq 3:    2 D = Rs 6, 400   =>  D = Rs 3, 200  (Daughter' income)
    Substitute in equation 2,    W = Rs 3, 050  (wifes income)
    Substitute it in equation 1 ,    M = Rs 2, 000     (man's income)
