Question 56 Chapter 2 of Class 12 Part – 1


56. Rinki, Tina and Murli are partners in a firm. They contributed Rs. 75,000 each as capital three years ago. At that time Murli agreed to look after the business as Rinki and Tina were busy. The profits for the past three years were Rs. 22,500, Rs. 37,500 and Rs. 75,000 respectively. While going through the books of accounts, Rinki noticed that the profit had been distributed in the ratio of 1:1:2. When she enquired from Murli about this. Murli answered that since he looked after the business he should get more profit. Rinki disagreed and it was decided to distribute profit equally retrospectively for the last three years.
