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 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
