**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

Given, Investment of P = Rs.28000

Duration of P = 8 months

Hence, Total investment amount of P $= Rs.28000\times8$

Investment of Q = Rs.42000

Duration of Q = 12 months

Hence, Total investment amount of Q $= Rs.42000\times12$

Ratio of profits = Ratio of investments = $28000\times8 : 42000\times12 = 4 : 9$

Given, Total profit = Rs.21125

Therefore, Profit of A = $\dfrac{4}{13}\times21125 = Rs.6500$

**2) Answer (A)**

Investment of Teena = Rs.24000

Duration of Teena = 8 months

Total investment of Teena = $Rs.24000 \times 8$

Investment of Reena = Rs.28000

Duration of Reena = 10 months

Total investment of Reena = $Rs.28000\times10$

Investment of Sheena = Rs.20000

Duration of Sheena = 12 months

Total investment of Sheena = $Rs.20000\times12$

Ratio of profits = Ratio of investments = $Rs.24000 \times 8 : Rs.28000\times10 : Rs.20000\times12 = 24 : 35 : 30$

Given, Total profit = Rs.25810

Then, Profit of Teena = $\dfrac{24}{89} \times 25810 = Rs.6960$

**3) Answer (D)**

Ratio of investments = Ratio of profits

Let the profits of K, L and M be Rs.15x, Rs.20x and Rs.27x respectively.

Total profit = Rs.15x+Rs.20x+Rs.27x = Rs.62x

Given, Rs.62x = Rs.10230 => x = Rs.165

Then, The difference between share of K and L = Rs.20x – Rs.15x = Rs.5x = Rs.5*165 = Rs.825

**4) Answer (A)**

Investment of Sumit = Rs.45000

Duration of Sumit = 1 year

Investment of Ravi = Rs.81000

Duration of Sumit = 1 year

Investment of Puneet = Rs.90000

Duration of Puneet = 1 year

Ratio of profits = Ratio of investments

= $45000 : 81000 : 90000 = 5 : 9 : 10$

Given, Total profit = Rs.4800

30% of total profit donated to charity

Amount donated to charity = 30% of Rs.4800 = Rs.1440

Remaining amount = Rs.4800-1440 = Rs.3360

Let the profits of Sumit, Ravi and Puneet be Rs.5x, Rs.9x and Rs.10x respectively.

Total profit = Rs.5x+9x+10x = Rs.24x

Given, 24x = 3360 => x = 140

Therefore, Profit of Sumit = 5x = 5*140 = Rs.700

**5) Answer (A)**

Investment of A = Rs.28000

Duration of A = 8 months

Total investment of A = Rs.28000$\times$8

Investment of B = Rs.42000

Duration of B = 12 months

Total investment of B = Rs.42000$\times$12

Ratio of profits = Ratio of investments = $Rs.28000\times8 : Rs.42000\times12 = 28 : 63$

Therefore, Profit of B = $\dfrac{63}{28+63}\times21125 = \dfrac{63}{91}\times21125 = Rs.14625$

**6) Answer (A)**

let the investments made by A and B be 4x and 5x

ratio of their profits is 4x*12+5x*10=48x:50x

=24:25

B’s share (25/49)*49000

=Rs 25000

**7) Answer (C)**

Let the investment of A and B be 3x and 8x

Investment of C =(3/4)8x

=6x

Ratio of their profits will be 3x*12:8x*12:6x*8

=3:8:4

C’s share=24000

(4/15)*x=24000

x=90000

**8) Answer (C)**

Raman invests 1/4th of total and Rohit invest 1/3th of the total

=> Raja’s investment = $1-\frac{1}{4}-\frac{1}{3}=\frac{12-3-4}{12}=\frac{5}{12}$

Thus, ratio of profit = $(\frac{1}{4}):(\frac{1}{3}):(\frac{5}{12})$

= $3:4:5$

=> Ans – (C)

**9) 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)

**10) Answer (C)**

Let’s say total capital is T, so A invests $(\frac{T}{4}) \times 15$ and say B invests for t time $(\frac{3T}{4}) \times t$

Hence profit will also be distributed in the ratio of their investment.

So profit distribution ratio will be $(\frac{T}{4}) \times 15$ : $(\frac{3T}{4}) \times t$

or 5:t

So B’s share will be \frac{t}{5+t} = \frac{2}{3}

or t=10

**11) Answer (B)**

Ratio of profits = Ratio of investments = 14000 : 18000 : 24000 = 7 : 9 : 12

Let the profit of A, B and C be Rs.7x, Rs.9x, Rs.12x respectively.

Total profit = 7x+9x+12x = Rs.28x

Given, 28x = 25480

Therefore, Profit of A and B together = Rs.7x+9x = Rs.16x = $\dfrac{16\times25840}{28} = Rs.14560$

**12) Answer (D)**

let the total capital be Rs z and total time be y

hence ratio of profit divison for A,B,C will be

$\frac{z}{6} \times \frac{y}{6} : \frac{y}{4} \times \frac{z}{4} : y \times \frac{7z}{12}$

A:B:C = 4:9:84

hence profit for B = 9/97 x 19400 = 1800
