C.) Rs.3200/-
D.) Rs.3600/-

Answer: Option 'C'

A = Rs.20,000/- & B = Rs.25,000/- 
==> A : B = 20 : 25 
==> 4 : 5 
Total profit = Rs.9000/-
20 % of prifit goes to charities ===> Rs.9000/- - Rs.1800/- = Rs.7200/- 
remaining amount = Rs.7200/- 
Total parts = 9 
9 parts -----> Rs.7200/-
1 part ------> Rs.800/- 
A's share ===> Rs.800/- × 4 parts = Rs.3200/-
