(A) Rs. 7000

(B) Rs. 7500

(C) Rs. 9000

(D) Rs. 9500

Ans: B

A : B : C = (20000 x 24) : (15000 x 24) : (20000 x 18) = 4 : 3 : 3.

Therefore, B’s share = Rs. \$\$(25000 × 3 / {10})\$\$ = Rs. 7500.

Question: 2

A, B and C rent a pasture. A puts 10 oxen for 7 months, B puts 12 oxen for 5 months and C puts 15 oxen for 3 months for grazing. If the rent of the pasture is Rs.175, how much must C pay as his share of rent?

(A) Rs. 45

(B) Rs. 50

(C) Rs. 55

(D) Rs. 60

Ans: A

A : B : C = 10 x 7 : 12 x 5 : 15 x 3 = 70 : 60 : 45 = 14 : 12 : 9.

Therefore, C’s rent = Rs. \$\$(175 × 9 / {35})\$\$ = Rs. 45.

Question: 3

A started a business with Rs.21,000 and is joined afterwards by B with Rs.36,000. After how many months did B join if the profits at the end of the year are divided equally?

(A) 2

(B) 3

(C) 4

(D) 5

Ans: D

Suppose B joined after x months.

Then, 21000 x 12 = 36000 x ( 12 – x) = 36 x = 180.

x = 5

Hence D, joined after 5 months.

Question: 4

Three partners A, B, C start a business. Twice A’s capital is equal to thrice B’s capital and B’s capital is four times C’s capital. Out of a total profit of Rs.16,500 at the end of the year B’s share is

(A) Rs. 4000

(B) Rs. 5000

(C) Rs. 6000

(D) Rs. 6600

Ans: C

Let C = x. Then, B = 4x and 2A = 3 × 4x = 12x or A = 6x.

Therefore, A : B : C = 6x : 4x : x = 6 : 4 : 1.

So, B’s capital = Rs. \$\$(16500 × 4 / {11})\$\$ = Rs. 6000.
