Answer: (b) Rs. 1500

Solution:-
Let the total profits be Rs. 100. 

If 5% of the total profit goes to charity, 
Then, A’s share = 95 x 3/5 
 = Rs. 57

If A’s share is Rs. 57, total profit = Rs. 100
If A’s share Rs. 855, 
Then, Total profit = 100 x 855/57
 = 1500

Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 1500
