a) Rs.20,000 b) Rs.12,000 c) Rs.18,000 d) Rs.21,000

**Answer : **d) Rs.21,000

Solution :

Roshan invests Rs.10,000 for 3 years (36 months).

And Ahamed invests Rs.16,000 for 30 months. Then,

Roshan : Ahamed = (10,000 x 36) : (16,000 x 30)

36 : 16x3 = 12:16 = 3:4

Therefore,Roshan's share = Rs.(3/7 x 49,000) = Rs.21000

Hence the answer is Rs.21,000.

**Answer : **a) Rs.4760

Solution :

Mathan invests Rs.18,000 for a year. (12 months).

And Asha invests Rs.16,000 for 7 months. Then,

Mathan : Asha = (18,000 x 12) : (16,000 x 7)

18x12 : 16x7 = 27:14

Therefore, Asha's share = Rs. 14/41 x 13,940 = Rs.4760

Solution :

Sethu invests Rs.4000 for 24 months, Ajay invests Rs.3000 for 24 months and Ajay invests Rs.4000 for 18 months.

Then,

Sethu:Siva:Ajay = (4000x24):(3000x24):(4000x18)

= 4x24 : 3x24 : 4x18

= 4 : 3 : 3

Therefore, Siva's share = Rs.5000 x 3/10 = Rs.1500

= 16 : 24 = 2:3

Then, Mary's share = Rs.(4510 x 2/5) = Rs.902 x 2 = Rs.1804
