Rs. 2500.

**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 2 × 7 + 10 × 13 = 144, whereas those by B are 2 × 13 + 10 × 7 = 96. The ratio of these money-months is 3:2. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 4000 × $3/{3 + 2}$ = Rs. 2400.
