Solution(By Apex Team)

For managing, A received = 5% of Rs. 7400 = Rs. 370. Balance = Rs. (7400 – 370) = Rs. 7030. Ratio of their investments = (6500 x 6) : (8400 x 5) : (10000 x 3) = 39000 : 42000 : 30000 = 13 : 14 : 10 $\begin{aligned}&\therefore\text{ B’s Share }\\ &=\text{ Rs. }7030\times\frac{14}{37}\\ &=\text{ Rs. }2660\end{aligned}$
