Solution

The correct option is A

Capital invested by A = Rs. 9000 
Capital invested by B =  Rs. 9000 
Capital invested by C =  Rs. 4000 


Total amount invested = Rs. 22,000

Ratio of profits of A : B : C = 900 : 900 : 400 = 9 : 9 : 4
the ratio of profit = 9 : 9 : 4
the ratio of investment should be 9 : 9 : 4.

Hence, capital invested by A = 22,000 × 99+9+4=22,000 × 922 =Rs.9000

Capital invested by B = 22,000 × 99+9+4=22,000 × 922 =Rs.9000

Capital invested by C = 22,000 × 49+9+4=22,000 × 422 =Rs.4000
