And

1 kg of wheat is being consumed in 1 days by $\frac{30\times 24}{75}=\frac{2\times 24}{5}$ persons .

So,

1 kg of wheat is being consumed in 40 days by $\frac{2\times 24}{5\times 40}=\frac{24}{5\times 20}=\frac{6}{5\times 5}$ persons .

Therefore,

50 kg of wheat is being consumed in 40 days by $\frac{6\times 50}{5\times 5}=6\times 2=\mathbf{12}$
