Solution(By Apex Team)

Ratio of investments of A, B and C = Ratio of their profits
$\begin{array}{l}
=337.50: 1125: 637.50 \\
=9: 30: 17
\end{array}$
∴ A’s investment
$\begin{aligned}&=\text{ Rs. }\left(14000\times\frac{9}{56}\right)\\
&=\text{ Rs. }2250\end{aligned}$
B’s investment
$\begin{aligned}&=\text{ Rs. }\left(14000\times\frac{30}{56}\right)\\
&=\text{ Rs. }7500\end{aligned}$
Hence, Required difference
$\begin{array}{l}
=\text { Rs. }(7500-2250) \\
=\text { Rs. } 5250
\end{array}$
