Answer: (4) 4, 000

Explanation:-
Let the total profit be X.

A shared of the profit = 1/3rd
B shared of the profit = 1/4th

Total shared by A and B = 1/3 + 1/4  = (4 + 3)/12 = 7/12
C shared of the profit = 1 – 7/12 = (12 – 7)/12 = 5/12

C shared of the profit = X x 5/12 = 5000
5 X = 5000 x 12
X = Rs. 12000

Then, the shares of A = 12000/3 = Rs. 4000.

Hence, the answer is (4) 4, 000.
