    Answer is Rs.15,000

    Explanation:-
    A and B invest in a business in the ratio n= 3: 2 

    A share’s in profit = Rs. 8, 550
    Then, total profit of A and B without charity = 8, 550 x (3 + 2)/3
     = 2, 850 x 5
     = 14, 250

    If 5% of the total profit goes to charity, 
    Then, the total profit = 14, 250 x 100/95
     = Rs. 15, 000

    Hence, the correct answer is option (3) Rs. 15, 000.
