### Solution:

Given that if the count of students is 8 less then everyone will get Rs. 10 more and if the count of students is 16 more then everyone gets Rs. 10 less.
Let the amount given to one person be Rs. x.
Let the number of students be y.
So,
Total amount to be distributed = $\mathit{yx}.$
Now, according to the first condition,

According to the second condition,

Therefore, we can say that,

Simplifying the above equation,

Also, since the total amount to be distributed is in both the case,

Equating the RHS values from equation 1 and 2,

$⇒$y = $\frac{32}{30}$x………….(3)
Putting values of equation 3 in equation 1,
80 = 24x - 20($\frac{32}{30}$x)
$⇒$80 = 24 x - $\frac{64}{3}$x
$⇒$80 = $\frac{8}{3}$ x
$⇒$x=30……..(4)
Putting the values of equation 4 to equation 3,
y = 32 × $\frac{30}{30}$
$⇒$y = 32
Therefore, the number of students is y = 32 and the amount per student is x = Rs. 30.
Thus, the total amount will be 32 × 30 = Rs. 960.
Hence, option (1) is correct.
