A

Rs. 4000.

B

Rs. 4100.

C

Rs. 3900.

D

Rs. 4200.

Soln.
Ans: a

The amounts are same but times are different. So the share should be in the ratio of times. Share of B = \$5/{4 + 5 + 3}\$ × 9600 = Rs. 4000.

### Question 2

A and B invest in a business in the ratio 7 : 12. After 6 months their investments became in the ratio 12 : 7. What is A's share in the annual profit of Rs. 7600?

A

Rs. 3800.

B

Rs. 3900.

C

Rs. 3700.

D

Rs. 4000.

Soln.
Ans: a

The money months contributed by A are 6 × 7 + 6 × 12. The money months contributed by B are also same: 6 × 12 + 6 × 7, so their share would be equal. A's share = 7600/2 = Rs. 3800.

### Question 3

Rs. 1700.

C

Rs. 1500.

D

Rs. 1800.

Soln.
Ans: a

Let the times be a - d, a and a + d. The amounts are same but times are different. So the share should be in the ratio of times. Share of B = \$(time of B)/(sum of times)\$ × 4800 = \$a/{3a}\$ × 4800 = Rs. 1600.
