Answer:  (2) Rs.2,500

Solution:-
Let the total profit be Rs.100

After paying to charity, A’s share = Rs. (90 x 2/5)
= Rs.36

If A’s share is Rs.36, total profit = Rs.100

If A’s share  Rs.900,
Then, total profit = 100 x 900/36
= 100 x 50/2
= 50 x 50
= Rs.2500

Hence, the correct answer is option (2) Rs.2,500.
