Solution

## The correct option is A 24,931 & 24,950Here, the divisible profit is Rs 2,50,558 and redemption price of 4500 shares is Rs 100 each i.e Rs 4,50,000. Now the balance left for equity shares is Rs 4,50,000-Rs 2,50,558 i.e. 1,99,442. Equity shares are issued at Rs 10 per share with 20% discount i.e Rs 10- Rs 2 i.e. Rs 8 per share which means number of shares to be issued will be Rs 1,99,442/Rs 8 i.e. 24,931 shares. If shares are issued in multiple of 50, then 24,950 shares will be issued as 24931 is minimum amount of shares and it cannot be 24,900.
