Question 1

A, B and C start a partnership business. A invests Rs. 300 and C invests Rs. 200. What should B have invested if it wanted to earn a share of Rs. 150 in the annual profit of Rs. 300?

 A

Rs. 250.

 B

Rs. 350.

 C

Rs. 150.

 D

Rs. 450.

Soln.
Ans: a

By inspection, the desired share is 1/2 of the annual profit. So B should have contributed half of the capital, which is ${300 + 200}/2$ = Rs. 250.


Question 2

P, Q and R start a venture with investments of Rs. 700, Rs. 900 and Rs. 400. After 8 months R leaves the business. What is R's share in the annual profit of Rs. 22400?

 A

Rs. 3200.

 B

Rs. 3300.

 C

Rs. 3100.

 D

Rs. 3400.

Soln.
Ans: a

Sum of the money months is 700 × 12 + 900 × 12 + 400 × 8 = 22400. Share of R = ${400 × 8}/22400$ × 22400 = Rs. 3200.


Question 3

P and Q invest in a business in the ratio 2 : 15. If 5% of the profit is donated as flood relief, and P gets Rs. 266, what is the profit?

 A

Rs. 2380.

 B

Rs. 2381.

 C

Rs. 2379.

 D

Rs. 2382.

Soln.
Ans: a

Let the profit be 100. If share of P is 95 × $2/{2 + 15}$, the profit is 100. So if share of P is 266, the profit should be 100 × ${2 + 15}/2 × 266/95$ = Rs. 2380.


Question 4

X and Y invest in a business in the ratio 7 : 19. If X earns Rs. 5600, what is the profit?

 A

Rs. 20800.

 B

Rs. 20801.

 C

Rs. 20799.

 D

Rs. 20802.

Soln.
Ans: a

If X earns 7, the profit is 7 + 19. Then, if the earning is 5600, profit = ${7 + 19}/7$ × 5600 = Rs. 20800.


Question 5

A and B invest in a business in the ratio 5 : 17. It was decided that any loss would be shared in the inverse ratio of the investments. If the total loss is Rs. 11000, what is the burden on A?

 A

Rs. 8500.

 B

Rs. 8600.

 C

Rs. 8400.

 D

Rs. 8700.

Soln.
Ans: a

The loss is divided in the inverse ratio as their shares. So A's loss = $17/{5 + 17}$ × 11000 = Rs. 8500.
