In what proportion should the profit at the end of one year be distributed among A, B and C?A. 3 : 5 : 2 B. 3 : 5 : 5 C. 6 : 10 : 5 D. Data inadequate Answer: Option C
Solution(By Apex Team)
Let initial investment of A is 3x and B is 5x, then C investment is also 5x, but most important to note in this question is the time duration of investment Like, A invested for 12 months, B invested for 12 months and C invested for 6 months. A : B : C = (3x x 12) : (5x x 12) : (5x x 6) = 36 : 60 : 30 = 6 : 10 : 5.
