Best answer
Total profit Rs. 69. Profit of Bimal is Rs. 46.
`:.` Profit of Ajmal `=Rs ( 69-46)=Rs. 23`
`:.` Profit of Ajmal: Profit of Bimal `=23:46=1:2`
`:.` Capital of Ajmal : Capital of Bimal `=1:2`
`:.` Capital of Amal with respect of 1 month `=Rs. 500xx9=Rs. 4500`
`:.` Capital of Bimal with respect of 1 month `=Rs. 4500xx3/1xx2/(1+2)=Rs. 9000`
Since Bimal invested his capital for 6 months.
`:.` Capital of Bimal `=Rs. (9000+6)=Rs. 1500`
`:.` a is correct.
