D Rs. 910960
E None of the above

Show Correct Answers

B. Rs. 770910

Let Y’s share be y. Then X’s share would be 0.6y.

According to the question,

y + 0.6y = 2400000

y = Rs. 1500000 (Y’s share)

So, X’s share = 0.6y = Rs. 900000

X’s accumulated amount = 900000 × (1 + 0.06)2 = 900000 × 1.1236 = Rs. 1011240

Y’s accumulated amount = 1500000 × (1 + 0.09)2 = 1500000 × 1.1881 = Rs. 1782150

Required difference = 1782150 – 1011240 = Rs. 770910
