Ratio of initial investments
$\begin{array}{l}
=\Large\frac{7}{2}: \frac{4}{3}: \frac{6}{5} \\
=105: 40: 36
\end{array}$
Let the initial investments be 105x, 40x and 36x
$\begin{aligned}&\left(105x\times4+\frac{150}{100}\times105x\times8\right):(40x\times12):(36x\times12)\\
&=1680x:480x:432x\\
&=35:10:9\end{aligned}$
$\begin{aligned}&\text{Hence, B’s share}\\
&=\text{ Rs. }\left(21600\times\frac{10}{54}\right)\\
&=\text{ Rs. }4000\end{aligned}$
