2.  A. Rs. 1425 B. Rs. 1500 C. Rs. 1537.50 D. Rs. 1576

Explanation :

Let the total profit be Rs. 100.

After paying to charity, A's share = Rs$$[95*\frac { 3 } { 5 } ]$$=Rs. 57.

If A's share is Rs. 57, total profit = Rs. 100.

If A's share Rs. 855, total profit =.[$$\frac { 100 } {57 }*855]$$=1500
