P:Q = 85000:15000 = 17:3

2. A,B and C enter into a partnership investing Rs 35000, Rs 45000 and 55000. Find the their respective shares in annual profit of 40,500
 10500, 13500, 19500
 10500, 13500, 18500
 10500, 13500, 17500
 10500, 13500, 16500
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
A:B:C = 35000:45000:55000 = 7:9:11
A's share = (7/27) *40500 = Rs 10500
B's share = (9/27) *40500 = Rs 13500
C's share = (11/27)*40500 = Rs 16500
[In options we can see that only salary of C is different in all options. So we cn just calculate the C share to solve question quickly :) ] 
3. Rs. 700 is divided among A, B, C so that A receives half as much as B and B half as much as C. Then C's share is
 Rs 200
 Rs 300
 Rs 400
 Rs 500
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option C
Explanation:
Let C = x.
Then B = x/2
and A = x/4
A:B:C = 1:2:4.
C's share Rs.[(4/7)*700) = 400 
4. A and B started a partnership business investing some amount in the ratio of 3 : 5. C joined them after six months with an amount equal to that of B. In what proportion should the profit at the end of one year be distributed amount A, B and C
 3:7:5
 6:10:5
 6:10:7
 6:7:5
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
Let initial investment of A is 3x and B is 5x, then C investment is also 5x, but most important to note in this question is the time duration of investment
Like, A invested for 12 months, B invested for 12 months and C invested for 6 months.
A:B:C =(3x*12):(5x*12):(5x*6)
= 36:60:30
= 6:10:5 
5. Three partners A,B and C shared the profit in a software business in the ratio 5:7:8. They had partnered for 14 months, 8 months and 7 months respectively. Find the ratio of their investments?
 19:49:64
 20:49:64
 20:49:65
 20:50:64
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
Let their investments be Rs. x for 14 months, Rs. y for 8 months and Rs. z for 7 months respectively
Then, 14x : 8y : 7z = 5 : 7 : 8
Now, 14x/8x = 5/7
=> y = (49/20)x
14x/7z = 5/8
=> z = (16/5)x
=>x:y:z = x:(49/20)x:(16/5)x
= 20:49:64 
6. A starts business with Rs. 3500 and after 5 months, B joins with A as his partner. After a year, the profit is divided in the ratio 2:3. What is B's contribution in the capital

Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option A

Let B contribution is x.
\begin{aligned}
\frac{3500*12}{7x} = \frac{2}{3} \\
=> 14x = 126000
=> x = Rs 9000
\end{aligned}
