Solution

## The correct option is A A : B : C :: 14 : 6 : 15Calculation of the new profit sharing ratio :-Let as assume Total Profit as "1" Given, C's share = 3/7So, remaining profit = 1 - 3/7 = 4/7A = 4/7 x 7/10 = 28/70 (Remaining profit x old ratio)B = 4/7 x 3/10 = 12/70 (Remaining profit x old ratio)C = 3/7 x 10/10 = 30/70Hence , 28: 12: 30 can be written as 14: 6: 15.
