__Explanations:__
1).

Sekar:Rajeev:Jatin=
[25000×12+35000×12+45000 × 12 : 35000×24] : [35000×12] = 1260000 : 840000 :
420000

=
3 : 2 : 1.

Rajeev's
share =Rs.[150000 × 2/6] = Rs.50000.

**Answer: b)**

2).

Let
the total profit be Rs. 100.

After
paying to charity, A's share = Rs. (95 x 3/5) = Rs. 57.

If
A's share is Rs. 57, total profit = Rs. 100.

If
A's share Rs. 855, total profit = 100/57 x 855 = 1500

**Answer: b)**

3).

For
managing, A received = 5% of Rs. 7400 = Rs. 370.

Balance
= Rs. (7400 - 370) = Rs. 7030.

Ratio
of their investments = (6500 x 6) : (8400 x 5) : (10000 x 3)

=
39000 : 42000 : 30000

=
13 : 14 : 10

B’s
share = Rs. [7030 × 14/37] = Rs.2660

**Answer: b)**

4).

Ration
of initial investments = [ 7/2 : 4/3 : 6/5] = 105 : 40 : 36

Let
the initial investments be 105x, 40x and 36x.

A
: B : C = [105x × 4 + 150/100 × 105x × 8] : [40x × 12] : [36x × 12]

=
1680x : 480x : 432x = 35 : 10 : 9

Hence,
B’s Share = Rs. [21600 × 10/54]

=
Rs.4000

**Answer: d)**

5).

Let
C =

*x*.
Then,
B =

*x*+ 5000 and A =*x*+ 5000 + 4000 =*x*+ 9000.
So,

*x*+*x*+ 5000 +*x*+ 9000 = 50000
3

*x*= 36000*x*= 12000

A
: B : C = 21000 : 17000 : 12000 = 21 : 17 : 12

A’s
Share = Rs. [35000 × 21/50] = 14700

**Answer: d)**

6).

A
: B = 3 : 2

B
: A = 2 : 3 = 4 : 6 and A : C = 2 : 1 = 6 : 3

So,
B : A : C = 4 : 6 : 3 or A : B : C = 6 : 4 : 3

B’s
share = Rs. [157300 × 4/13] = Rs.48400

**Answer: c)**

7).

Ratio
of their shares = 22500 : 35000 = 9 : 14

Deepak’s
share = Rs. [13800 × 14/23] = Rs.8400

**Answer: c)**

8).

A
: B : C = (25 lakhs × 1) + (35 lakhs × 2) : (35 lakhs × 2 + 25 lakhs × 1) : (30
lakhs × 3)

=
95 lakhs : 95 lakhs : 90 lakhs = 19 : 19 : 18

**Answer: c)**

9).

Suppose
B invested Rs. x for y months. Then, A invested Rs.3x for 2y months.

So,
A : B = (3x × 2y) : (x × y) = 6xy : xy = 6 : 1

So,
B’s profit : total profit = 1 : 7

Let
the total profit be Rs. x. Then, 1/7 = 4000/𝑥 or x = 28000

**Answer: d)**

10).

A
: B : C = 27000 : 72000 : 81000 = 3 : 8 : 9

So,
C’s share : total profit = 9 : 20

Let
the total profit be Rs. x. Then, 9/20 = 36000/𝑥 or x = (36000 × 20) / 9 =
80000

**Answer: a)**
