Solution

## The correct option is A 1870 Let the profit be Rs.x. So, 0.8x will be the amount they will share according to investments ratio, which is 2:4:3. As per the information, at the end of the year, 29×0.8x=49×0.8x+39×0.8x−Rs.2200 So, on solving we get x=Rs.4950 ∴ Shyam gets the profit of Rs.1870.
