She was born on a leap year.
So she put totally ((60- 20)/4 )* 250 totally while her sister drew (500*40)

So net amount that remains is 2500- 2000 = 500

Answer: She put Rs.250 10 times in 40 years as she born on 29th Feb (a leap year). And her sister pick up Rs. 50 40 times in 40 years. SO

2500 - 2000 = 500.
