(Being adjustment to profit for omission of interest on capital, interest on drawings)

Working Notes:

Simply put, the problem is stating that the interest on capital and interest on drawings was not considered. Also, note that the interest on drawing need to be considered for 6 months.

Interest on Capital

Mannu

{= ₹~30,000 × \dfrac{5}{100}}

= ₹ 1,500

Shrishthi

{= ₹~10,000 × \dfrac{5}{100}}

= ₹ 500

Interest on Drawings

Duration

= 6 months

Mannu

{= ₹~4,000 × \dfrac{6}{100} × \dfrac{6}{12}}

= ₹ 120

Shrishthi

{= ₹~2,000 × \dfrac{6}{100} × \dfrac{6}{12}}

= ₹ 60

Loss in Profit

= (₹ 1,500 + ₹ 500) – (₹ 120 + ₹ 60)

= ₹ 1,820

Loss adjusted to:

Mannu

{= ₹~1,820 × \dfrac{3}{5}}

In this problem, we’ve to make adjustments for Interest on Capital and Interest on Drawings.

So, from the Closing Capital, we need to find the Opening Capital.

We know, for the given case, that

Closing Capital

= Opening Capital – Drawings + Profits

From this, the Opening Capital can be found as

Opening Capital

= Closing Capital + Drawings – Profits

Interest on Capital

Mohan

{= ₹~27,000 × \dfrac{10}{100}}

= ₹ 2,700

Vijay
