sorry i don't understand the question

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/3x/4=900.
from which u get x=10800.
keshav gets 10800/3= 3600.
