Answer: (2) Rs. 60, Rs. 90, Rs. 360

Explanation:-
Let the shares of C = Rs. X

B gets 1/4 of what C gets,
Then, the shares of B = X/4

A gets 2/3 of what B gets,
Then, the shares of A = X x 2/4 x 3
= X/6

Total amount = Rs. 510               (Given in the question)

Then, X + X/4 + X /6 = 510
(24 X + 6X + 4 X)/24 = 510
34 X = 510 x 24
X = 510 x 24/34
X = 30 x 12
X = 360

Then, the shares of A = X/6 = 360/6 = Rs. 60,   shares of B = X/4 = 360/4 = Rs. 90  & shares of C = X = Rs. 360.

Hence, the answer is (2) Rs. 60, Rs. 90, Rs. 360.
