**Hint:**We have to find his total earnings when the salesman is allowed 5% commission on the total sale made by him plus a bonus of 1% on the excess of his sale over Rs. 20,000/- If the total earning of Rs. 1,450/- on commission alone. So, first of all we have to let his total sales be $x$, then we have to take 5% of his total sales equal to its total earnings on commission alone, which is Rs. 1,450/-, from there we have to find the value of $x$.

Now, we have to find his excess sale, then we have to take 1% of his excess sale to find his total earnings.

**Complete answer:**

Step 1: First of all we have to let his total sales = $x$

Step 2: As given in the question, he allows 5% commission on the total sale and earns a total earnings equal to Rs. 1,450/-

Hence,

$

\Rightarrow 5\% \times x = 1450 \\

\Rightarrow \dfrac{5}{{100}} \times x = 1450 \\

\Rightarrow x = 1450 \times \dfrac{{100}}{5} \\

\Rightarrow x = 29000/ - \\

$

Step 3: As given in the question, He gives a bonus of 1% on the excess of his sale over Rs. 20,000/-

So, first of all we have to find his excess sale that is mentioned below:

Excess sale $ = 29000 - 20000$

$ \Rightarrow 9000/ - $

So, his total earnings be,

$

\Rightarrow 1\% \times 9000 \\

\Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{{100}} \times 9000 \\

\Rightarrow 90/ - \\

$

**His total earnings be 90/- hence, option (B) is correct.**

**Note:**

It is necessary that we have to determine the 5% of the amount we let for the total sale to determine the 5% of the commission form the total sale.
