__Solutions:__**ย**

**1).**A=2B and B=5C

รจ A : B = 2 and B : C = 5 : 1

รจ A : B : C = 10 : 5 : 1

Ratio of capitals of A, B and Cย = 10 : 5 : 1

Bโs share = (5/16) ร 25600 = Rs. 8000

**Answer: d)**

**ย**

**2).**Ratio of capitals of Prakash, Sunil and Anil = 11 : 16.5 : 8.25 = 4 : 6 : 3 (take common 2.75)

Sum of ratio of capital = 4 + 6 + 3 = 13

50% of Anilโs share in the profit = [(19.5 ร 3) / 13] ร (50/100) = 2.25lakh

**Answer: b)**

**ย**

**3).**The ratio of profit of the three persons = 1800 : 3000 : 4800 = 3 : 5 : 8

Investment of the second person = (5/16) ร 80000 = Rs. 25000

**Answer: e)**

**ย**

**4).**Let the initial investment of A and B be Rs. 2x and Rs. 3x respectively

Let B invested for a period of y months. Then, ratio of capitals of A and B

= (2x ร 9) : (3x ร y) = 1 : 2

= 18x / (3x ร y) = ยฝร 6/y = 1/2 = y = 12

Hence, Bโs investment is for 12 months.

**Answer: a)**

**ย**

**5).**Let Cโs investment = Rs. X

Bโs investment = Rs. (x – 3000)

Aโs investment = (x โ 3000 + 6000) = Rs. (x + 3000)

Now, (A + B + C)โs investment = Rs. 72000

= x + (x – 3000) + (x + 3000) = 72000ร 3x = 72000ร x = 24000

Hence, Aโs investment = Rs. 27000, Bโs investment = Rs. 21000, Cโs investment = Rs. 24000

Ratio of the capitals of A, B, and C = 27000 : 21000 : 24000 = 9 : 7 : 8

Aโs share = (9/24) ร 8640 = Rs. 3240

**Answer: a)**

**ย**

**6).**Ratio of capitals of A and B = (42000 ร 12) : (63000 ร 4) = 2 : 1

Bโs share = (1/3) ร 9600 = Rs. 3200

**Answer: c)**

**ย**

**7).**Ajay : Abhay : Arun = 13000 ร 12 : 39000 ร 12 : 52000 ร 7

= 12 : 3 ร 12 : 4 ร 7 = 3 : 9 : 7

Arunโs share = (7/19) ร 14250 = Rs. 5250

**Answer: b)**

**ย**

**8).**Ratio of capitals of A, B and C

= (15000 ร 3) : (40000 ร 9) : (30000 ร 6) = 1 : 8 : 4

Bโs share = (8/13) ร 7800 = Rs. 4800

**Answer: a)**

**ย**

**9).**Let the investment of C be Rs. x

The investment of B = Rs. (2x/3)

The investment of A = 3 ร (2x/3) = Rs. 2x

Ratio of capitals of A, B and C = 2x : (2x/3) : x = 6 : 2 : 3

Cโs share = (3/11) ร 12375 = Rs. 3375

**Answer: b)**

**ย**

**10).**Ratio of shares of A, B and C = 45000 : 55000 : 60000 = 9 : 11 : 12

Aโs share = (9/32) ร 11200 = Rs. 3150

Bโs share = (11/32) ร 11200 = Rs. 3850

Bโs share is more than A by (3850 – 3150) = Rs. 700

**Answer: a)**
