**Solutions (1 to 5)
**

**1) Answer (c)**

Let the investment of A, B , and C be y , 2y , 4y

after 6 months A invested half of amount more and hence for next 8 months in a year his invest is proportional to 1.5y . where as B invested same amount and C withdrew 1/4th of his amount

So their effective amount after 6 months are 4y and 3y respectvely

So after a year their profits will be shared in ratio = A:B:C = (6y + 9y) : (12y + 24y) : (24y + 18y)

A:B:C = 15:36:42 = 5:12:14

Hence answer is C option.

**2) Answer (d)**

Let the investment of A, B , and C be y , 3y , 5y

after 4 months A invested same amount and hence for next 8 months in a year his invest is proportional to 2y . where as B and C withdrew half of their amount

So their effective amount after 4 months are 1.5y and 2.5y respectvely

So after a year their profits will be shared in ratio = A:B:C = (4y+16y) : (12y + 12y) : (20y + 20y) A:B:C = 20:24:40 = 5:6:10

**3) Answer (a)**

let the investment of C in business be Rs YAs it is mentioned that A and B remain invested for whole year and have contributions Rs 24000 and Rs 28000 respectively. and C joined them only for 8 months in a years so the Profit will divide in ratio = A:B:C = (24000×12) : (28000×12) : (Yx8)

profit at year end = Rs 19950

and C’s share = $$\frac{Y}{78000+Y} x 19950= 7600$$

Y = 29718 + 0.381 Y

Y = 48009 ~ Rs 48000

**4) Answer (c)**

Given , the ratio of investments of A,B,C is 4:6:5 . So , let them be 4k , 6k, 5k.

Given that A started the business. After 4 months from the start of the business, B and C joined.

i.e. A worked for 12 months while B , C worked for 8 months.

Aâ€™s share in annual profit was Rs. 250 more than Câ€™s share.

So , A = C +250

12(4k) = 8(5K) + 250

48K = 40K + 250

k = 31.25

Total amount = 12(4K) + 8(6k) +8(5K)

= 136K

= 136*31.25

= 4250

**5) Answer (c)**

scheme A has 8 % SI and scheme B has 9 % SI

Let the sum invested in A = Rs y then sum invested in B = Rs 2y

Total interest earned = Rs 1800

Time = 2 years for scheme B and 3 years for scheme A

So

$$\frac{24y}{100}$$ + $$\frac{36y}{100}$$ = 1800

y = 180000/60

y= 3000
