Solution(By Apex Team)

$\begin{array}{l}\text{Investment of A =1000}&&\\ \text{So, investment of B+C}&&\\ \text{=6000-1000}&&\\ \text{=5000}&&\\ \text{B:C=5000}&&\\ \text{2:3=2000:3000}&&\\ \text{So,}\end{array}$ $\begin{array}{c}\mathrm{A}:\quad\mathrm{B}:\mathrm{C}&\\ 1000:2000:3000&\\ 1:2\quad:3=6&\\ \therefore\text{ Profit of }\mathrm{C}&=\frac{3}{6}\times2400\\ &=1200\end{array}$
