**Answer: (2) Rs. 3600**

**Explanation:-
**The ratio of A, B, and C = (16000 x 3 + 11000 x 9) : (12000 x 3 + 17000 x 9) : (21000 x 6)

= (48000 + 99000) : (36000 + 153000) : (126000)

= 147000 : 189000 : 126000

= 147 : 189 : 126

Part of B exceeds C by = (189 – 126) x 26400/462

= 3600

Hence, the answer is (2) Rs. 3600.
