Question 1 of 5
1. Question
In the third year, if A, B and C invested the same amount as before in the second of the year, what is Câ€™s share in a profit of Rs. 60000?
Correct
Answer: c)
In third year,
Aâ€™s investment = Rs. 50000 for 12 months
Bâ€™s investment = Rs. 40000 for 12 months
Câ€™s investment = Rs. 60000 for 12 months
Hence,
â‡’ Aâ€™s share : Bâ€™s share : Câ€™s share = 50000 : 40000 : 60000
â‡’ Aâ€™s share : Bâ€™s share : Câ€™s share = 5 : 4 : 6
âˆ´ Câ€™s share = (6/15) Ã— 60000 = Rs. 24000Incorrect
Answer: c)
In third year,
Aâ€™s investment = Rs. 50000 for 12 months
Bâ€™s investment = Rs. 40000 for 12 months
Câ€™s investment = Rs. 60000 for 12 months
Hence,
â‡’ Aâ€™s share : Bâ€™s share : Câ€™s share = 50000 : 40000 : 60000
â‡’ Aâ€™s share : Bâ€™s share : Câ€™s share = 5 : 4 : 6
âˆ´ Câ€™s share = (6/15) Ã— 60000 = Rs. 24000 
Question 2 of 5
2. Question
What is the share of A in the profit in the second year?
Correct
Answer: d)
In second year,
Aâ€™s investment = Rs. 50000 for 12 months
Câ€™s investment = Rs. 60000 for (12 â€“ 3) = 9 months
Câ€™s share = Rs. 4500
Hence,
â‡’ (50000 Ã— 12) : (60000 Ã— 9) = Aâ€™s share : 4500
â‡’ 10 : 9 = Aâ€™s share : 4500
â‡’ Aâ€™s share = (10/9) Ã— 4500
âˆ´ Aâ€™ share = Rs. 5000Incorrect
Answer: d)
In second year,
Aâ€™s investment = Rs. 50000 for 12 months
Câ€™s investment = Rs. 60000 for (12 â€“ 3) = 9 months
Câ€™s share = Rs. 4500
Hence,
â‡’ (50000 Ã— 12) : (60000 Ã— 9) = Aâ€™s share : 4500
â‡’ 10 : 9 = Aâ€™s share : 4500
â‡’ Aâ€™s share = (10/9) Ã— 4500
âˆ´ Aâ€™ share = Rs. 5000 
Question 3 of 5
3. Question
If B invested in the company after 4 months, what is the ratio of the share in profit of A and B?
Correct
Answer: e)
Aâ€™s investment = Rs. 50000 for 12 months
Bâ€™s investment = Rs. 40000 for (12 â€“ 4) = 8 months
âˆ´ Ratio of their share in profit = (50000 Ã— 12) : (40000 Ã— 8) = 15 : 8Incorrect
Answer: e)
Aâ€™s investment = Rs. 50000 for 12 months
Bâ€™s investment = Rs. 40000 for (12 â€“ 4) = 8 months
âˆ´ Ratio of their share in profit = (50000 Ã— 12) : (40000 Ã— 8) = 15 : 8 
Question 4 of 5
4. Question
If B received Rs. 5600 as his share of profit at the end of first year, after how many months did he invested in the company?
Correct
Answer: c)
Let B invested in the company after â€˜xâ€™ months
Aâ€™s investment = Rs. 50000 for 12 months
Bâ€™s investment = Rs. 40000 for (12 â€“ x) months
Aâ€™s share = Rs. 12000
Bâ€™s share = Rs. 5600
Hence,
â‡’ (50000 Ã— 12) : [40000 Ã— (12 â€“ x) ] = 12000 : 5600
â‡’ (5 Ã— 12) : [4 Ã— (12 â€“ x) ] = 120 : 56
â‡’ 60 : (48 â€“ 4x) = 120 : 56
â‡’ (60 Ã— 56)/120 = 48 â€“ 4x
â‡’ 28 = 48 â€“ 4x
â‡’ 4x = 20
â‡’ x = 5âˆ´ B invested in the company after 5 months
Incorrect
Answer: c)
Let B invested in the company after â€˜xâ€™ months
Aâ€™s investment = Rs. 50000 for 12 months
Bâ€™s investment = Rs. 40000 for (12 â€“ x) months
Aâ€™s share = Rs. 12000
Bâ€™s share = Rs. 5600
Hence,
â‡’ (50000 Ã— 12) : [40000 Ã— (12 â€“ x) ] = 12000 : 5600
â‡’ (5 Ã— 12) : [4 Ã— (12 â€“ x) ] = 120 : 56
â‡’ 60 : (48 â€“ 4x) = 120 : 56
â‡’ (60 Ã— 56)/120 = 48 â€“ 4x
â‡’ 28 = 48 â€“ 4x
â‡’ 4x = 20
â‡’ x = 5âˆ´ B invested in the company after 5 months
