Explanation

We can get directly from the question
F- 50,000cr
A-40,000cr
G-60,000cr
Now rest amount is= 500000- 150000= 350000cr
So, 350000cr distributed among five minister E, H, B, C and D.
As given, E and H gets same amount .
Lets take E gets  X cr. So H will also get X cr.
According to question,
B will get = X/2 cr,
C will get= X/4 cr,
D will get 75% of the amount of E or we can say that D gets 3/4th amount of which is received by E.
So, D= 3/4 X.
Now , according to question
X+X+ X/2 + X/4+ 3X/4= 350000cr
After solving, we get X=100000cr.
