Correct option is D)
Let the initial investment of A is 3x and B, is 5x, then C investment is also 5x, but most important to note in this question is the time duration of investment Like, A invested for 12 months, B invested for 12 months and C invested for 6 months. A:B:C=(3x×12):(5x×12):(5x×6) =36:60:30 6:10:5
