  1. Solution:

    It is given that, Ramkali saved Rs.5 in 1st week and then started saving Rs.1.75 each week.

    Hence,

    a = 5

    d = 1.75

    It is also given,

    a= 20.75

    n = ?

    By the nth term formula,

    an = a+(n−1)d

    i.e

    20.75 = 5+(n -1)×1.75

    15.75 = (n -1)×1.75

    (n -1) = 15.75/1.75 = 1575/175

    = 63/7 = 9

    n -1 = 9

    n = 10

    So, n is 10.
