### Question 1

During the first 2 months the investments of A and B were in the ratio 5:19. For the remaining months the investments were in the ratio 19:5. What will be the share of A in an annual profit of Rs. 28800?

**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 2 × 5 + 10 × 19 = 200, whereas those by B are 2 × 19 + 10 × 5 = 88. The ratio of these money-months is 25:11. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 28800 × $25/{25 + 11}$ = Rs. 20000.
