**b.** Rs. 4000

**c.** Rs. 3500

**d.** Rs. 3000

**ANSWER: Rs. 4000**

A's capital : B 's capital

20000 : 40000 = 1 : 2

Since, the time period is fixed, the profit is distributed in the ratio of capital 1 : 2

Profit of A = (1/3) * 33,000 = Rs. 11,000

Salary of A = Rs. (15000 – 11000) = Rs. 4000
