### Question 5

Rs. 1600.

**B**

Rs. 1700.

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.
