a)Rs12000

b)Rs12500

c)Rs13000

d)Rs13500

**Answer: **A

**Explanation:**

A’s capital be C1 = 14000

B’s capital be C2 = 16000

C’s capital be C3 = 12000

A’s time be T1 = 24 months

B’s time be T2 = 24 months

C’s time be T3 = 16 months

Profit: 57000

Apply formula: Profit of A: Profit of B: Profit of C = C1*T1: C2*T2:C3*T3

= 14000*24: 16000*24:12000*16

= 336000:384000:192000

= 7: 8: 4

C’s share = 4/19 * 57000 = 12000 (Option A)

7:-The ratio of Suresh’s and Ravi’s contributions is 3:1. What is the entire profit if 5 percent of the overall profit is donated and Ravi receives 8550 as his part of the profit?

a)14000

b)14500

c)15000

d)15500

**Answer:** C

**Explanation:**

Let the total profit = x

The ratio of contribution by Ravi and Suresh = 3:2

Sum of ratios = 5

**Apply formula:**

Ravi’s share = (Ravi’s ratio/ sum of all ratios)* total profit

Ravi’s share = (3/5) * x = 8550

x= (8550*5)/3

Total profit: x= 14250

ATQ, the Ravi gets 8550 after 5 % donated

Now, 95% = 14250

1% = 14250/ 95

And, 100% = (14250/95) * 100 = 15000

8:- The combined ages of the father and son are 44 years. What are their current ages if, in 6 years, the father will be 3 times as old as his son?

a)36, 8

b)38, 6

c)35, 9

d)37, 7

**Answer:** A

**Explanation:**

Let present age of son is X and present age of father is (44 -X).

As per question, after 6 years;

3(X+6) = (44 – X) +6

3X +18 = 50 – X

4X = 50 – 18

4X = 32

X = 8 years

∴Present age of son = 8 years

And, present of father = 44 – 8 = 36 years

9:-The father’s age is seven times that of the son. The father’s age will be three times that of his son in the following ten years. What is the father’s current age?

a) 35 years

b) 37 years

c) 39 years

d) 41 years

**Answer:** A

**Explanation:**

Let the age of son is X and age of father 7X

Age of son after 10 years = X+10

Age of father after 10 years = 7X + 10

As per question, after 10 years;

3(X+10) = 7X + 10

3X + 30 = 7X + 10

4X = 20

X = 5 years

∴Age of father now = 7 * 5 = 35 years
