**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 8000 × 3 = 24000, whereas those by B are 12000 × 9 = 108000. The ratio of these money-months is 2:9. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 8800 × $2/{2 + 9}$ = Rs. 1600.

Rs. 1500.

**C**

Rs. 1300.

**D**

Rs. 1600.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 4 × 1 + 8 × 3 = 28, whereas those by B are 4 × 3 + 8 × 1 = 20. The ratio of these money-months is 7:5. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 2400 × $7/{7 + 5}$ = Rs. 1400.
