• 4) 17 months
Ans.   B
Explanation :
Let the total profit be Rs. Z Bharti's share = (2/3)Z Rahul's Share = Z-(2/3)Z = Z/3 Rahul:Bharti = Z/3:(2/3)Z = 1:2 Now let the total capital be Rs X, and Bharti capital was used for Y months then, Rahul capital will be (1/4)X and Bharti capital wil be X-(1/4)X = 3X/4 \begin{aligned} \frac{\frac{1}{4}X*15}{\frac{3}{4}X*Y}= \frac{1}{2} \Y = \frac{15*2}{3} = 10 \end{aligned} So Bharti's money was used for 10 months

14) A,B and C enter into a partnership investing Rs 35000, Rs 45000 and 55000. Find the their respective shares in annual profit of 40,50

• 1) 10500, 13500, 19500

• 3) 10500, 13500, 17500
• 4) 10500, 13500, 16500
Ans.   D
Explanation :
A:B:C = 35000:45000:55000 = 7:9:11 A's share = (7/27) *40500 = Rs 10500 B's share = (9/27) *40500 = Rs 13500 C's share = (11/27)*40500 = Rs 16500 [In options we can see that only salary of C is different in all options. So we cn just calculate the C share to solve question quickly :) ]

15) Rs. 700 is divided among A, B, C so that A receives half as much as B and B half as much as C. Then C's share

• 1) Rs 200
• 2) Rs 300
• 3) Rs 400
• 4) Rs 500
Ans.   C
Explanation :
Let C = x. Then B = x/2 and A = x/4 A:B:C = 1:2:4. C's share Rs.[(4/7)*700) = 400

16) A and B started a partnership business investing some amount in the ratio of 3 : 5. C joined them after six months with an amount equal to that of B. In what proportion should the profit at the end of one year be distributed amount A, B and

• 1) 3:7:5
• 2) 6:10:5
• 3) 6:10:7
• 4) 6:7:5
Ans.   B
Explanation :
Let initial investment of A is 3x and B is 5x, then C investment is also 5x, but most important to note in this question is the time duration of investment Like, A invested for 12 months, B invested for 12 months and C invested for 6 months. A:B:C =(3x*12):(5x*12):(5x*6) = 36:60:30 = 6:10:5

17) Three partners A,B and C shared the profit in a software business in the ratio 5:7:8. They had partnered for 14 months, 8 months and 7 months respectively. Find the ratio of their investment

• 1) 19:49:64
• 2) 20:49:64
• 3) 20:49:65
• 4) 20:50:64
Ans.   B
Explanation :
Let their investments be Rs. x for 14 months, Rs. y for 8 months and Rs. z for 7 months respectively Then, 14x : 8y : 7z = 5 : 7 : 8 Now, 14x/8x = 5/7 => y = (49/20)x 14x/7z = 5/8 => z = (16/5)x =>x:y:z = x:(49/20)x:(16/5)x = 20:49:64

18) A starts business with Rs. 3500 and after 5 months, B joins with A as his partner. After a year, the profit is divided in the ratio 2:3. What is B's contribution in the capit

• 3) Rs 5000
• 4) Rs 4000
Ans.   A
Explanation :
Let B contribution is x. \begin{aligned} \frac{3500*12}{7x} = \frac{2}{3} \=> 14x = 126000 => x = Rs 9000 \end{aligned}
