**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

P invested Rs. 50,000 for 4 months and Rs. 30,000 for 8 months

Q invested Rs. 40,000 for 6 months and Rs. 110,000 for 6 months

=> Ratio of profits of P:Q = $[(50,000\times4)+(30,000\times8))]:[(40,000\times6)+(110,000\times6)]$

= $(20+24):(24+66)=44:90=22:45$

Let total profit earned = Rs. $x$

=> P’s share = $\frac{22}{(22+45)}\times x=11,000$

=> $x=11,000\times\frac{67}{22}$

=> $x=500\times67=Rs.$ $33,500$

=> Ans – (A)

**2) Answer (A)**

Investment by X = Rs. 171,000 and by Y = Rs. 243,000

=> Ratio of profits at the end of year = $171,000:243,000=19:27$

X’s share in the profit = Rs. 3800

=> Total profit = $\frac{(19+27)}{19}\times3800$

=> $46\times200=Rs.$ $9200$

=> Ans – (A)

**3) Answer (D)**

Investment by R = Rs. 165,000 and by S = Rs. 195,000

=> Ratio of profits at the end of year = $165,000:195,000=11:13$

R’s share in the profit = Rs. 11,000

=> Total profit = $\frac{(11+13)}{11}\times11,000$

=> $24\times1000=Rs.$ $24,000$

=> Ans – (D)

**4) Answer (B)**

P invested Rs. 14,000 for 36 months and Q invested Rs. 8,000 for 28 months

=> Ratio of profits of P:Q = $(14,000\times36):(8,000\times28)$

= $(36):(8\times2)=9:4$

=> Ans – (B)

**5) Answer (C)**

Let P invested Rs. 4 for 6 months and Q invested Rs. 7 for $x$ months

=> Ratio of profits of P:Q = $(4\times6):(7\times x)$

According to ques,

=> $\frac{24}{7x}=\frac{4}{21}$

=> $7x\times4=24\times21$

=> $x=\frac{24\times21}{7\times4}$

=> $x=6\times3=18$ months

=> Ans – (C)

**6) Answer (B)**

Amount invested by U = Rs. 184,000

Amount invested by V = Rs. 224,000

Ratio of profits of U:V = $184000:224000$

= $23:28$

Let profit earned by U and V be Rs. $23x$ and $28x$ respectively.

Acc to ques, => $23x=20700$

=> $x=\frac{20700}{23}=900$

$\therefore$ Total profit = $23x+28x=51\times900=Rs.$ $45,900$

=> Ans – (B)

**7) Answer (C)**

Amount invested by S, T and U = Rs. 4200, Rs. 6300 and Rs. 8400

=> Ratio of amount = $S:T:U=2:3:4$

Also, S invested for 3 months, T for 6 months and U for 12 months

=> Ratio of profits of S, T and U = $(2\times3)+(3\times6)+(4\times12)$

= $1:3:8$

Total profit = Rs. 6000

$\therefore$ U’s share = $\frac{8}{(1+3+8)}\times6000$

= $8\times500=Rs.$ $4000$

=> Ans – (C)

**8) Answer (D)**

Arpit and Brijesh invested the amount in 3:4.

Chandu and Dinesh invested the amount in 3:5.

It is given that amount invested by Brijesh and Chandu is same.

So converting the ratios for Arpit : Brijesh = 3 : 4 = 9 : 12

similarly Chandu : Dinesh = 3 : 5 = 12 : 20

We can say that Arpit, Brijesh, Chandu and Dinesh must have inve in 9 : 12 : 12 : 20

The profit will be divided in ratio of investments

So Dinesh’s profit share will be = $\frac{20}{9+12+12+20}*10600$

= $\frac{20}{53}*10600$ = 4000

**9) Answer (D)**

Let the investments of A and B be 3x and 2x and total profit ‘T’

Then profit earned by A and B is,

$\frac{3}{5}$ (95% of T) = 8,550

T = 30 x 5 x 100 = 15,000

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**10) Answer (C)**

Amount invested by A = Rs.15000

Time period = 6 months.

Weighted investment = Rs.15000*6 = Rs.90000

Amount invested by B = Rs.16000

Time period = 12 months

Weighted investment = Rs.16000*12 = Rs.192000

Profit will be in the ratio of investments.

⇒ 90000 : 192000 = 15 : 32

Therefore, Profit of A = $\dfrac{15}{15+32}\times23500 = \dfrac{15}{47}\times23500 = Rs.7500$

**11) Answer (D)**

Ratio of shares = (Ratio of investments)*(Ratio of duration)

Here duration is not mentioned so take it as 1:1

Hence Ratio of shares = Ratio of investments = 4:7

So the answer is option D.

**12) Answer (D)**

Share of P = $\frac{5}{5+8}\times 1300 = \frac{5}{13} \times 1300 = 500$/-

So the answer is option D.

**13) Answer (C)**

Difference of Share of P and Q = $\frac{9-7}{9+7}\times 4800 = \frac{2}{16} \times 4800 = 600$/-

So the answer is option C.

**14) Answer (C)**

Total profit = 1157/-

Ravi’s Share = 623/-

Raju’s share = 1157-623 = 534/-

Ratio of shares of Ravi and Raju = 623:534 = 7:6

So the answer is option C.

**15) Answer (D)**

Share of A = $\frac{3}{3+7}\times 3000 = \frac{3}{10} \times 3000 = 900$/-

So the answer is option D.
