**Solutions (1 to 5)**

**1) Answer (a)**

Percentage profit by company A = 35%

Percentage profit by company B = 40%

Let expenditure be x

(Income of A – x)/x = 0.35

Income of A = 1.35x

(Income of B – x)/x = 0.4

Income of B = 1.4x

Income of A:Income of B = 1.35:1.4 = 27:28

**2) Answer (d)**

Amount of Profit = Income – Expenditure = 1.5 lakhs

Percentage of profit = 40%

1.5/x = 0.4

x = 3.75

**3) Answer (e)**

Average percentage profit cannot be calculated because we do not know the individual income and expenditure of each year.

**4) Answer (c)**

Percentage profits of both the companies A and B in 2008 = 50% and 30%

Let the incomes be x

(x-Expenditure of A)/Expenditure of A = 0.5

Expenditure of A = x/1.5

(x – Expenditure of B)/Expenditure of B = 0.3

Expenditure of B = x/1.3

Ratio = x/1.5:x/1.3 = 13:15

**5) Answer (d)**

This answer is indeterminate as we do not know the individual profits and expenditures of both the firms.
