Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : Rs. 2000

Given: 

Lokesh, Piyush and Suhani divide an amount of Rs 15,000 amongest themselves in the ratio 5 : 8 : 2 respectively.

Calculation:

Let the ratio of amount Lokesh, Piyush and Suhani be 5x, 8x and 2x.

According to the question,

⇒ 5x + 8x + 2x = 15000

⇒ 15x = 15000

⇒ x = 1000

Share of Suhani's 

⇒ 2 × 1000

⇒ Rs. 2000

∴ The Suhani's share in the amount is Rs. 2000.
