$\textrm{Assume that number is x.Now according to the question}$

$\Rightarrow$ $x$$-$${\frac{1}{5}*x=84}$

$\Rightarrow$ $5x-x$ = $84*5$

$\Rightarrow$ $4x$ = $84*5$

$\Rightarrow$ $x$ = ${\frac{84*5}{4}}$

$\Rightarrow$ $x$= $105$

$\textrm{Option C}$

$\Rightarrow$ $x$$-$${\frac{1}{5}*x=84}$

$\Rightarrow$ $5x-x$ = $84*5$

$\Rightarrow$ $4x$ = $84*5$

$\Rightarrow$ $x$ = ${\frac{84*5}{4}}$

$\Rightarrow$ $x$= $105$

$\textrm{Option C}$
