**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.
