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
