Let the 4 digit no. be xyzw.

According to given conditions we have x + y = z + w, x + w = z, y + w = 2x + 2z.

With help of these equations, we deduce that y = 2w, z = 5x.

Now the minimum value x can take is 1 so z = 5 and the no. is 1854, which satisfies all the conditions.

Hence Option A is correct
