    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
