   A.) Rs. 2500
   B.) Rs. 3400
   C.) Rs. 3600
   D.) Rs. 2700

Answer: Option 'C'

1. Investment of A = Rs. 16000 × 3 + Rs. 11000 × 9
= Rs. 147000 (Since he withdrew Rs. 5000 after 3 months)
2. Investment of B = Rs. 12000 × 3 + Rs. 17000 × 9
= Rs. 189000 (he invested Rs. 5000 more after 3 months)
3. Investment of C = Rs. 21000 × 6 = Rs. 126000 (He joined after 3 more months)
4. Profits ratio = 147 : 189 : 126 ; 7 : 9 : 6
5. Share of B = 9/22 × 26400 = Rs. 10800/6.
Share of C = 6/22 × 26400 = Rs. 7200.
Share of B exceeds that of C
= Rs. 10800 - Rs. 7200
= Rs. 3600/-

4.

The sum of the ages of Sandya and Avanthi is twice the difference of their ages. Find the ratio of Avanthi's age to Sandya's age.

Answer: Option 'B'

Let my present age be X
Let the age of my mom as M
Let the age of my father as F
So, According to question

X + M = F + 5
X = F - M + 5
F - M = 6
X = 6 + 5 = 11
