1.  Rahul, Anurag and Vivek started a business together. In what proportion would the     annual profit be distributed among them?

I . Rahul got one-fourth of the profit.

II. Rahul and Vivek contributed 75% of the total investment.

2. A.

I alone sufficient while II alone not sufficient to answer

B.

II alone sufficient while I alone not sufficient to answer

C.
 Either I or II alone sufficient to answer
D.

Both I and II are not sufficient to answer

E.

Both I and II are necessary to answer  Explanation :

Let the total investment be Rs. x.

Then, R =$$(\frac { X } { 4 })$$

R + V =[$$\frac { 75 } {100 }$$xx]=$$\frac { 3X} { 4 }$$

V =[$$\frac { 3X} { 4 }$$-$$\frac {X} { 4 }$$]=$$\frac { X} { 2 }$$ A = x -[$$\frac { X} { 4}$$+$$\frac { X} { 2} ]$$=$$\frac { X} { 4}$$

R : A : V =$$\frac { X} { 4}$$:$$\frac { X} { 4}$$:$$\frac { X} { 2}$$=1:1:2

Thus, both I and II are needed to get the answer.
