30000
45000
35000
Cannot be determined
None of these
Option A
Sum invested by Akansha = 4x = 36000
X = 9000
Investment made by Akansha, Banya , Caryl =36000, 45000, 54000
Ratio in which the profit will be divided- 36000*12 : 45000*2 : 54000*6 + 27000*6
=4:5:9.
So Caryl share = (9/18)*60000 = 30000

2. Two friends Avinash and Brijesh invested in a company with 115000 and 75000 rupees respectively. They agree that 40% of profit should be divided equally among them and rest is divided between them according to their investment.

3200.25
3958.34
3500.25
3984.32
None of these
Option B
Ratio in which the profit will divide =23:15.
Let the profit be P,
now, [(23/38) – (15/38)]*(60/100)*P = 500
P = 3958.34

3. Priyal, Queen, Riya invested in the ratio of 6:5:7. After the end of business term, they receive the profit in ratio 3:1:5. Find the ratio of time in which they invested in the business?
25:15:30
45:51:65
35:14:50
40:45:52
None of these
Option C
Take time as T1,T2 and T3
(6*T1/5*T2) = 3/1, u will get T1/T2 = 5:2
Similarly, (5*T2/7*T3) = 1/5, u will get T2/T3 = 7/25

4. Three persons P,Q and R enter into a partnership by investing in ratio of 4:5:8. After one year P invest more 4300 and Q withdraws 3200. Now, the ratio of investment changes to 5:4:7. Approximately how much P invested initially?
12550
14500
13550
14755
None of these
Option D
After1 year – 4x+4300 : 5x-3200 : 8x
so, to find X = (4x+4300)/(5x-3200) = 5/4
so investment made by P = (33200/9)*4 = 14755

5. Three partners Priyal, Queen and Rashi invest a total sum of 2,40,000. At the end of the year Priyal get 15000 rupee, Queen get 20000 and Rashi get 25000 rupees as profit. How much amount is invested by Priyal and Rashi together?

Investment made by Priyal, Queen and Riya are 40000, 50000, 60000 initially.
In second year =30000, 50000, 65000
In third year = 35000, 65000, 65000
So final ratio = 105000: 165000: 190000.
i.e 21:33:38
