Given :
A's Investment = 2000
B's Investment =5000
Also, given that  Profit = 28000

Now We need to find the share of A and B


1) Find the ratio of investment
                               ratio = 2000 : 5000
                                       = 2 : 5

A's share = ( A's Ratio / (A + B Ratio ) )  * Profit
                =  ( 2 / (2+5) ) * 28000
                =  ( 2  /  7 ) * 28000
                =  ( 2 ) * 4000
                = 8000

So the answer is Option ( c ) 8000



Also if you need B's Share = Profit - A's Share
                                             = 28000 - 8000
                                             = 20000

The ratio of A and B's share is 2:5
The profit is Rs.28000.

Let A's profit be 2x
Let B's profit be 5x

Therefore, 2x+5x =28000
7x = 28000
x = 4000

Hence, A's profit is 2x = 2*4000 = Rs.8000.

The answer is option c)8000
