15. A, B, C enter into a partnership with a capital in which A’s contribution is Rs.10000. If out of a total profit of Rs.2000, A gets Rs.1000 and B gets Rs.800, then C’s capital is:

View Answer

Answer is A

Explanation:

A: B: C = 1000: 800: 200 = 10: 8: 2

Let their capitals be 10x, 8x and 2x respectively. Then, 10x = 10000 => x = 1000

∴ C’s capital = 2x = 2 * 1000 = Rs.2000
