Answer:



Q:

A) Rs. 23,500 B) Rs. 19,780
C) Rs. 21,700 D) Rs. 20,050
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs. 23,500

Explanation:

Given A & B in partnership

A Invests 116000 for 12 months 

=> A's share = 116000 x 12 = 13,92,000

B Invests for 6 months

=> B's share = 144000 x 6 = 8,64,000

Their Ratio = 1392 : 864 = 29 : 18

Let the Annual profit = P

Given B's share = Rs. 9000

=> 18/47 x P = 9000

=> P = 9000 x 47/18

=> P = 23,500

Hence, Overall profit = P = Rs. 23,500

If the profit earned by them at the end of the year is equal to the twice of the difference between investment of Rajeev and ten times the investment of Shakti. Find the profit of Rajeev ?

A) 50000 B) 48000
C) 38000 D) 40000
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 38000

Explanation:

Here from the given information,

The ratio of investments of Rajeev, Deepu & Shakti is

R : D : S = (10000 × 12) : (12000 × 10) : (7200 × 8)

= 25 : 25 : 12

Now the Profit = 2 × (72000-10000) = 124000

Share of Rajeev = 124000 x 25/62 = 48000

Profit of Rajeev = 48000 - 10000 = 38000
