Amount invested by A,B and C = Rs. 20,000 Rs. 28,000 and Rs. 36,000 respectively.

Ratio of profits shared by A : B : C

= $[(20,000 \times 6) + (12,000 \times 6)]$ : $[(28,000 \times 6) + (20,000 \times 6)]$ : $[(36,000 \times 6) + (44,000 \times 6)]$

= $32 : 48 : 80 = 2 : 3 : 5$

Let total profit earned = $Rs. x$

Profit received by C = $\frac{5}{(2 + 3 + 5)} \times x = 12550$

=> $\frac{x}{2} = 12550$

=> $x = 12550 \times 2 = Rs. 25,100$

Amount invested by Sarita = Rs. 50,000 and amount invested by Neeta = Rs. 80,000

Ratio of amount invested by Sarita : Neeta = 5 : 8

Time period in which Sarita invested = 12 months and Neeta = 6 months

Ratio of time periods of Sarita : Neeta = 2 : 1

=> Ratio of profits earned by Sarita : Neeta = $(5 \times 2)$:$(8 \times 1)$

= 5 : 4

Total profit earned = Rs. 18,000

$\therefore$ Sarita’s share in the profit = $\frac{5}{(5+4)} \times 18,000$

= $5 \times 2,000 = Rs. 10,000$

=> Ans – (D)

Amount invested by Prabha = Rs. 32,000 and amount invested by Amit = Rs. 22,000

Ratio of amount invested by Prabha : Amit = 16 : 11

Time period in which Prabha invested = 12 months and Amit =76 months

Ratio of time periods of Prabha : Amit = 12 : 7

=> Ratio of profits earned by Prabha : Amit = $(16 \times 12)$:$(11 \times 7)$

= 192 : 77

Total profit earned = Rs. 16,409

$\therefore$ Prabha’s share in the profit = $\frac{192}{(192+77)} \times 16,409$

= $192 \times 61 = Rs. 11,712$

=> Ans – (B)

Let A remained in the business for $x$ months.

Amount invested by A = Rs. 3500

Amount invested by B = Rs. 4000

Ratio of share in profit received by A and B

=> $\frac{3500 \times x}{4000 \times 12} = \frac{7}{12}$

=> $\frac{7 x}{8 \times 12} = \frac{7}{12}$

=> $x = 8$

$\therefore$ 8 months from the start of the business A left the business.

Let the amount invested in schemes A, B and C in Rs. respectively be $2x , 3x$ and $4x$

Amount after 1 year in scheme :

A = $\frac{120}{100} \times 2x = 2.4x$

B = $\frac{116}{100} \times 3x = 3.48x$

C = $\frac{115}{100} \times 4x = 4.6x$

=> Required ratio = 2.4 : 3.48 : 4.6

= 60 : 87 : 115

Ratio of shares = A : B : C

= 64000 : 52000 : 36000 = 16 : 13 : 9

$\because$ $16 \equiv 35584$

$\therefore 9 \equiv \frac{35584}{16} \times 9$

= Rs. 20,016

A : B = 7 : 8

B : C = 4 : 9 = 8 : 18

=> A : B : C = 7 : 8 : 18

Let total profit be $P$

=> B’s share = $\frac{8}{33} \times P = 7104$

=> $P = \frac{7104 \times 33}{8}$

Now, C’s share = $\frac{18}{33} * P$

= $\frac{18}{33} \times \frac{7104 * 33}{8}$

= $18 * 888 =$Rs. $15,984$

A : B = 7 : 9 = 14 : 18

B : C = 18 : 11

=> Ratio of investments = A : B : C = 14 : 18 : 11

Total profit = Rs. 15,050

$\therefore$ C’s share of profit = $\frac{11}{14 + 18 + 11} \times 15,050$

= $\frac{11}{43} \times 15050$

= $11 \times 350$ = Rs. $3,850$

Ratio of investments of Raj and Prithvi = $x : (x + 2000)$

Total profit = Rs. 8,400

Acc to ques,

=> $\frac{x}{x + x + 2000} \times 8400 = 3600$

=> $\frac{x}{2x + 2000} = \frac{36}{84}$

=> $\frac{x}{2x + 2000} = \frac{3}{7}$

=> $7x = 6x + 6000$

=> $x = 6000$

$\therefore$ Amount invested by Prithvi = 6000 + 2000

= Rs. 8,000

Let B invested the money for = $x$ months

=> Ratio of investments of A : B = $(5 \times 7) : (7 \times x)$

= $5 : x$

Acc to ques

=> $\frac{5}{x} = \frac{1}{2}$

=> $x = 5 \times 2 = 10$ months

The ratio of amount invested by A and B

= $(12 \times 3,000) : (6 \times 6,000) + (6 \times 3,000)$

= $(36) : (36) + (18)$

= $36 : 54 = 2 : 3$

Let the total profit = Rs. $x$

Acc to ques,

=> B’s share = $\frac{3}{2 + 3} \times x = 3,750$

=> $x = \frac{3,750 \times 5}{3}$

=> $x = 1250 \times 5$ = Rs. $6,250$

Total profit = Rs. 13,050

Pihu’s share = Rs. 6,750

=> Rani’s share = 13,050 – 6,750 = Rs. 6,300

Let Pihu withdrew after $x$ months

=> Ratio of investments of Pihu and Rani

= $(9,000 \times x) : (6,300 \times 24)$

= $5x : 84$

Acc to ques,

=> $\frac{5x}{84} = \frac{6750}{6300}$

=> $\frac{5x}{84} = \frac{15}{14}$

=> $x = \frac{15}{14} \times \frac{84}{5}$

=> $x = 3 \times 6 = 18$ months

Equivalent capital of Raksha for 1 year

= Rs. (60,000 $\times$ 1 + 80,000 $\times$ 2)

= Rs. 60,000 + 1,60,000

= Rs. 2,20,000

Equivalent capital of Kamal for 1 year

= Rs. (90,000 $\times 2\frac{1}{2}$)

= Rs. 2,25,000

=> Ratio of capitals = 2,20,000 : 2,25,000

= 44 : 45

Total profit = Rs. 71,20,000

=> Raksha’s share in the profit = $\frac{44}{44 + 45} \times 71,20,000$

= $44 \times 80,000$

= Rs. $35,20,000$

A : B : C = 0.125 : 0.75 : 0.25

= 125 : 750 : 250 = 1 : 5 : 2

Let investments of A, B & C be $x , 5x , 2x$ respectively

After 8 months, A added = $x + 3 * x = 4x$

and C withdraws = $\frac{2x}{2} = x$

=> Ratio of profits = A : B : C

= $(x * 8) + (4x * 4) : (6x * 12) : (2x * 8) + (x * 4)$

= $24x : 72x : 20x = 6 : 18 : 5$

Total profit = 5800

$\therefore$ B’s profit = $\frac{18}{29} * 5800$ = Rs. 3,600

Investment by A, B & C = 8400, 15600 , 13200

=> A : B : C = 7 : 13 : 11

Let total profit be x

=> A’s share = $\frac{7}{31} * x = 1960$

=> $x = \frac{1960 * 31}{7} = 8680$

$\therefore$ Difference between B’s and C’s share of profit = $\frac{2}{31}$ * 8680

= Rs. 560
