Correct Answer - Option 2 : Rs. 30,000

Given:

Virat's investment = Rs. 55,000

Anushka's investment = Rs. 44,000

Total profit = Rs. 78,000

Concept used:

Divide the total profit according to investment ratio.

Calculations:

The total investment of Virat in 6 months = 55000 × 6

The total investment of Anushka in 12 months = 44000 × 12

The ratio of equivalent capitals of Virat and Anushka = (55000 × 6) ∶ (44000 × 12) = 5 ∶ 8

Thus Virat’s share = 78000 × (5/13) = Rs. 30,000

∴ The share of Virat is Rs. 30,000.
