Solution

The correct option is **B**

3 : 2

(Arav's investment period) : (Zoya's investment period) = 12:13 = 3 : 2

Let the multiplying factor of the ratio be z. Since, ratio of their investments is 3 : 2, Arav invested for 3z months and Zoya invested for 2z months.

Let capital of Zoya be y. Then, capital of Arav would be 2y

∴, Arav's profit : Zoya's profit = (3z) × (2y) : (2z) × (y)

⇒ 6zy : 4zy

⇒ 6 : 4

⇒ 3 : 2
