Expert Answer:

Five bulbs consume the power of 100 W each.
 
The total power consumed by 5 bulbs = 5 x 100 = 500 W = 0.5 kilowatt
 
Electrical energy consumed daily is, E = P x t = 0.5 kW x 10 hours = 5 kWh.
 
Thus, total electrical energy consumed for 30 days = 5 kWh x 30 days = 150 kWh or 150 units.
 
The cost of 1 unit of electricity = Rs. 4
Thus, the total cost of electricity = Rs. 4 x 150 = Rs. 600
