    Answer: (2) Rs. 1, 600

    Explanation:-
    Salim. Rahim and Karim started a business in partnership with amount of Rs. 2, 000, Rs. 2, 500 and Rs. 3, 000 respectively.

    Then, the ratio of the share in the business = 2, 000: 2, 500: 3, 000
    = 4: 5: 6

    Total earned profit = Rs. 6, 000

    Then, the share of Salim in profit = 6, 000 x 4/15
    = 400 x 4
    = Rs. 1, 600

    Hence, the answer is (2) Rs. 1, 600.
