A) B
B) C
C) A
D) Both A and B
E) Both B and C
Option D
Solution:

Investment ratio 6:3:2
Month ratio 3:6:2
Then 6*3 : 6*3 : 2*2
18:18:4==>9:9:2
Both A and B gets equal and highest profits.
2. A, B and C start a business and their investments are in the ratio 4 : 3 : 6. Both A and B starts the business and C joins them after 6 months. It was decided that C will get a monthly salary of Rs 600 from the annual profits. C’s total salary came out to be 10% of the annual profit after a year. What is the share of B in the total profits?
A) Rs8500
B) Rs9720
C) Rs9650
D) Rs10100
E) None
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.
3. A, B and C started a business where their initial capital was in the ratio of 4:5:6. At the end of 8 months, A invested an amount such that his total capital became half to C’s initial capital investment. If the annual profit of B is Rs. 7500 then what is the total profit ?
A) Rs22000
B) Rs18000
C) Rs20000
D) Rs19500
E) None
Option A
Solution:

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
4. P start a business with Rs. 10000, Q joins him after 2 month with 20% more investment than P, after 2 month R joins him with 40% less than Q. If the profit earned by them at the end of the year is equal to the twice of the difference between investment of P and ten times the investment of R. Find the profit of Q ?
A) Rs35500
B) Rs42000
C) Rs38000
D) Rs41100
E) None
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.
5. M and N are partners in a firm out of which M is sleeping partner and N is working partner. M invests Rs. 1,80,000 and N invests Rs. 90,000.

D) Rs13680
E) None
Option D
Solution:

Profit received by N as working partner = 14.5% of Rs. 24000= Rs. 3480
Balance in profit = 24000-3480 = Rs. 20520
Ratio of M and N=1,80,000: 90,000==>2:1
Then M’s share 3 20520
2 ? Rs13680
6. Naveen and Kannan jointly started a business. Naveen invested four times as Kannan did and invested his money for double time as compared to Kannan. Kannan earned Rs. 5400. Then the total gain was ?
A) Rs45000
B) Rs48600
C) Rs52000
D) Rs55500
E) None
Option B
Solution:

Investments ratio is = 4:1
Time period ratio is = 2:1
Gain ratio of Naveen and Kannan = 8:1
Kannan got Rs. 5400,
1 5400
9 ? ==>Rs48600
The total gain = Rs48600
7. A & B partner in a business , A contribute 1/4 of the capital for 15 months & B received 2/3 of the profit . For how long B’s money was used
A) 8
B) 6
C) 10
D) 7
E) None
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
8. X, Y and Z enter into a partnership and theirs shares are in the ratio 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4. After two months, X withdraws half of his capital and after 10 months, a profit of Rs.420 is divided among them. What is Y’s share?
A) Rs180
B) Rs165
C) Rs 160
D) Rs195
E) None
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
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.
10. P and Q invested in a business. They earned some profit which they divided in the ratio of 2:3. If P invested Rs.30000, the amount invested by Q is
A) Rs 40000
B) Rs 35000
C) Rs 45000
D) Rs 50000
E) None
Option C
Solution:

30,000:Q = 2:3
Q = 90,000/2 = 45,000
