    Answer: (2) 80   120    480
    Explanation:-
    Total money = Rs.680                     (Given)
    Let C get be = Rs.X
    Then, B get = X/4
    and A get = X x 2/3 x 4 = X /6
    According to the question,
    X + X/4 + X/6 = 680
    17X/12 = 680
    17X = 680 x 12
    X = 40 x 12 = 480

    So, A get = 480/6 = Rs.70, B get = 480 /4 = Rs.120 and C = X = Rs.480.
