(d)  Rs.6,600

Total Profit = 7800 – (6000 + 300 +300) = 7800- 6600 = 1200. So, M & N will share profit of Rs 600 each. So, N will remit Rs 7800 – 300 (exp incurred by him) – 600 (his share of profit) = 6900

So, option (a) is correct

(a) Rs.82,000

(b) Rs.90,000

(c)  Rs.50,000

(d)  None

Cost of goods sold  = 2,00,000 x 4/5 = 1,60,000. So, profit on goods sold = 2,50,000 – 1,60,000 = 90000. Loss on goods taken by B= (2,00,000 – 1,60,000) x 20% = 8000. Hence net profit = 90000 – 8000 = 82000. Hence option (a) is correct.

(a) Rs.80,000

(b) Rs.80,800

(c)  Rs.81,200

(d)  Rs.80,400

Cost of goods sold = 200000-10000=190000. Sale value of goods sold – 2,80,000. So Gross Profit=280000-19000=90,000. Expenses: Commission on Purchase: 1% of 200000=2000. Commission on Sale 2% of 280000=5600. Loss on materials taken over 10000-8000 =2000. So, net profit = 90000 – (2000+5600+2000) = 90000-9600=80400. Hence option (d) is correct.

80 % subscribed. So, 20% of 100000 shares = 20000 shares remain unsubscribed. So, A takes up 20000 x (3/5) = 12000 shares. Hence option (c) is correct.

9. If separate set of books is maintained and discount is received at the  time of purchase of goods then such a discount will be treated as :

Commission Expenses = 1% of 20000 = 2000 + 5% of 250000=12500 = 14500

Profit = 50000-14500=35500. So Hence option (a) is correct.
