(a) Rs. 70 lakh in bank deposits

(b) 1 house worth Rs. 50 lakh

(c) 3 flats, each worth Rs. 30 lakh

(d) Certain number of gold coins, each worth Rs. 1 lakh She wanted to distribute her assets among her three children; Neeta, Seeta and Geeta. The house, any of the flats or any of the coins were not to be split. That is, the house went entirely to one child; a flat went to one child and similarly, a gold coin went to one child.

B) 40

C) 20

D) 10

A) 72

B) 90

C) 180

D) 216

Q1: Option (C)

Q2: 2

Q3: Option (B)

Q4: 20

Amount in Bank Deposits = 70 lakhs

Amount for 1 house = 50 lakhs

Amount for 1 flat = 30 lakhs

Amount for 3 flats = 90 lakhs

Number of gold coins = n

Amount in gold coins = n lakhs

Total Amount = 210 + n

House will go to only one person, 1 Flat will go to only one person and 1 Gold coin will go to one person

Q1) Assets were divided equally among the three and so were the gold coins.

Gold coins each daughter will receive = n/3

Total Amount with each person = (210 + n)/3

Total Amount with each person – Number of gold coins = 70

One child will get the house (worth Rs. 50 lakhs). Flat can’t be given to this child as it is worth 30 lakhs and limit will be exceeded.

So, the child will get 50 lakhs (House) + 20 lakhs (Bank Deposits)

Second child will get 2 Flats (60 lakhs) + 10 lakhs (Bank Deposits)

Third child will get 1 Flat (30 lakhs) + 40 lakhs (Bank Deposits)

Neeta gets the minimum amount of Bank Deposit, so 2nd child will be Neeta

Geeta gets the maximum amount of Bank Deposit, so 3rd child will be Geeta

Seeta will be the 1st child

So, Seeta got Rs. 20 lakhs as Bank Deposit.

Option (C)

Q2) We can get the answer to this question with the help of the first one. Neeta will get 2 flats

Q3) Total amount distributed by the old woman = Rs.70 lakh (bank deposits) + Rs.50 lakh (House) + Rs.90 lakhs (3 flats) i.e Rs.210 lakhs + Gold coins worth Rs.1 lakh each.

Ratio of distributed gold coins = 2 : 3 : 4,

Ratio of total assets distributed = 1:2:3

From both the ratios, we can see that

Seeta received 1/3 of the total property and 1/3 of the gold coins. This means her share is 1/3 (Bank deposits + house + flats) = Rs.70 lakhs.

Also, one child got all the three flats but not the house. One child other than Geeta got Rs.30 lakhs in bank deposits. From this we can conclude that Seeta cannot get all the three flats. As her share is Rs.70 lakhs + 1/3 (gold coins).

So, Seeta should receive one house and bank deposits of Rs.20 lakhs. This suggests that Neeta should get Rs.30 lakhs in bank deposits.

Therefore, Geeta should get Rs.20 lakhs in bank deposits. From this, all the three flats should be received by Geeta. Let the number of gold coins received by Neeta, Seeta and Geeta be 2x, 3x and 4x respectively.

From these we’ve. (30+2x)/(70+3x) = 1/2 => x = 10

So, number of gold coins must be 90.

Option (B)

Q4) Total amount distributed by the old woman = Rs.70 lakh (bank deposits) + Rs.50 lakh (House) + Rs.90 lakhs (3 flats) i.e Rs.210 lakhs + Gold coins worth Rs.1 lakh each

Ratio of distributed gold coins = 2 : 3 : 4,

Ratio of total assets distributed = 1:2:3

From both the ratios, we can see that

Seeta received 1/3 of the total property and 1/3 of the gold coins. This means her share is 1/3 (Bank deposits + house + flats) = Rs.70 lakhs.

Also, one child got all the three flats but not the house. One child other than Geeta got Rs.30 lakhs in bank deposits.

From this we can conclude that Seeta cannot get all the three flats. As her share is Rs.70 lakhs + 1/3 (gold coins).

So, Seeta should receive one house and bank deposits of Rs.20 lakhs. This implies Neeta should get Rs.30 lakhs in bank deposits. Hence Geeta should get Rs.20 lakhs in bank deposits.
