    Option B
    Solution:

    C’s monthly salary Rs600.
    Then annual salary =600*6=3600(Because he work for 6 month only)
    Rs3600is 10% of total profit.
    Then total profit is Rs36000.
    Ratio of their shares 4*12: 3*12: 6*6
    =4:3:3
    Profit left after reducing salary of C = 36,000 – 3,600 = 32,400
    B’s share 3/10*32400=Rs9720.

    Initial Ratio 4:5:6
    Now, 4*8 +3*4 :5*12 : 6*12
    44:5*12 :6*12==>11:15:18.
    B’s share is Rs7500
    ie 15 7500
    (11+15+18)44 ? ==>22000

    C) Rs38000
    D) Rs41100
    E) None
    View Answer
    Option C
    Solution:

    P : Q : R = (10000 × 12) : (12000 × 10) : (7200 × 8)
    = 25 : 25 : 12
    Now the Profit = 2 × (72000-10000) = 124000
    Q’s share 25/62*12400=Rs50000
    Then profit of Q=50000-12000=Rs38000.

    Option C
    Solution:
    B received 2/3 of the profit
    A : B = 1 : 2
    Let the total capital = x
    Then A’s capital = x/4
    B’s capital = x – x/4 = 3x/4
    If B’s money was used for a months
    Then A:B = (x/4)*15 : (3x/4)*a = 1 : 2
    15/4 : 3b/4 = 1 : 2
    15 : 3b = 1 : 2
    5 : b = 1 : 2
    a = 5*2 = 10

    View Answer
    Option C
    Solution:

    Ratio of initial investments = 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4 = 6 : 4 : 3.
    Let their initial investments be 6x, 2x and 3x respectively.
    Ratio (6x * 2) + (3x * 10) : (4x * 12) : (3x * 12)
    = 42 : 48 : 36 ==>7 : 8 : 6.
    B’s share = 420 * 8/21 = Rs. 160.
  9. If 8 (P’s Capital ) = 10 ( Q’s Capital ) = 12 ( R’s Capital ) , then out of the total profit of Rs 2590 , Q will receive ?
    A) Rs. 740
    B) Rs. 630
    C) Rs. 840
    D) Rs. 730
    E) None
    View Answer
    Option C
    Solution:

    8p = 10q = 12r
    4p = 5q = 6r
    q = 4p/5
    r = 4p/6 = 2p/3
    P : Q : R = p : 4p/5 : 2p/3
    15:12:10
    Q’s share = 2590 * (12/37) = 70*12 = Rs. 840.
