Partnership ( 6 to 10 ):

# APTITUDE QUESTIONS (PARTNERSHIP):

6. X, Y, Z subscribe Rs.50000 for a business. X subscribes Rs.5000 more than Y and Y Rs.6000 more than Z. Out of a total profit of Rs.45000. X receives:

A)    Rs.8400

B)    Rs.19800

C)    Rs.15400

D)    Rs.14700

E)    None of these

Explanation:
Let Z = x. Then Y = x + 6000 and X = x + 6000 + 5000 = x + 11000.
So, x + x + 6000 + x + 11000 = 50000
3x + 17000 = 50000
3x = 33000 => x = 11000
X: Y: Z = 22000: 17000: 11000 = 22: 17: 11
∴ X’s share = Rs. (45000*22/50) = Rs.19800

7. If 4(A’s capital) = 6(B’s capital) = 10(C’s capital), then out of a profit of Rs.4650, C will receive:

A)    Rs.465

B)    Rs.900

C)    Rs.1550

D)    Rs.2250

E)    None of these

Explanation:
Let 4A = 6B = 10C = k. Then, A = k/4, B= k/6 and C= k/10
∴ A: B: C = = k/4:k/6: k/10 = 15: 10: 6
Hence, C’s share = Rs. 4650*(6/31)=Rs.900

8. X, Y, Z enter into partnership. X invests money at the beginning, Y invests double the amount after 4 months and Z invests thrice the amount after 6 months. If the annual profit be Rs.38000, Z’s share is:

A)    Rs.8625

B)    Rs.9000

C)    Rs.10800

D)    Rs.12000

E)    None of these

Explanation:
Let X’s investment be Rs. x
Then, ratio of capitals = (x * 12): (2x * 4): (3x * 6) = 12x: 8x: 18x = 6x: 4x: 9x
Z’s share = Rs. 38000*(6/19)=Rs.12000

9. A, B, C hired a car for Rs.520 and used it for 7, 8 and 11 hours respectively. Hire charges paid by B were:

A)    Rs.140

B)    Rs.160

C)    Rs.180

D)    Rs.220

E)    None of these

A: B: C = 7: 8: 11
Hire charges paid by B = Rs. 520*(8/26)=Rs.160

10. A, B, C rent a pasture. A puts 20 oxen for 7 months, B puts 22 oxen for 5 months and C puts 25 oxen for 3 months for grazing. If the rent of the pasture is Rs.325, how much must C pay as his share of rent?
