Correct Answer - Option 4 : Rs. 187,500, Rs. 45,000

Given:

Expenditure = 25%

Earnings = Rs. 200,000

Y = 10% of profit earned

A : B = 1 : 2 (Capital invested)

Profit gain = 20%

Angel investor = 25% of total investment

Formula used:

Profit earned in Rs = Profit earned in % × investment

Earnings – Expenditure = Profit earned

Calculation:

Profit earned = 200,000 (1 – 0.25)

⇒ Profit earned = Rs. 150,000

⇒ 10% to angel investor = 15000

⇒ Difference between B’s share and A’s share = (2 × 135000/ 3) – (135000/ 3) (∵ 150000 – 15000 = 135000)

⇒ Difference between B’s share and A’s share = 45000

⇒ Total investment = 150,000/ 0.20

⇒ Total investment = Rs. 750,000

⇒ Angel investor’s investment = 750000 × 25/ 100

⇒ Angel investor’s investment = 187,500

⇒ Remaining investment = 750000 – 187500

⇒ Remaining investment = 562500

⇒ Capital investment by A = 562500 × 1/ 3

⇒ Capital investment by A = 187500

Capital investment by A is Rs. 187500, Difference between B’s share and A’s share is 45000
