Answer & Explanation
C) Rs. 59000
Interest received by A from B = 10% of half of Rs.50000 = 10% of Rs. 25000 = Rs.2500.
Amount received by A per annum for being a working partner = 1500 x 12 = Rs.18000
Let 'P' be the part of the remaining profit that A receives as his share.
So,total income of A = (Rs.2500 + Rs.18000 + Rs. P )
Total income of B = only his share from the remaining profit = 'P', as A and B share the remaining profit equally.
We know that income of A = Twice the income of B
So, (2500 + 18000 + P ) = 2(P)
P = 20500
Thus, the total profit = 2P + Rs.18000
= 2(20500) + 18000 = Rs.59000.
