    dear shweta,
    keshav got 3600 from kailash.
    Explanation:
    let the amount kailash had be x.
    kailash gave x/3 to keshav.
    keshav gave x/3*3/4 to saket. so saket got x/4 rs.
    now from the question, u get that
    x/3-x/4=900.
    from which u get x=10800.
    keshav gets 10800/3= 3600.
