A sum of money is to be distributed among A, B, C, D in the proportion of 5 : 2 : 4 : 3. If C gets Rs. 1000 more than D, what is B's share?
Rs. 500
Rs. 1500
Rs. 2000
None of these
Answer: Option
Explanation:

Let the shares of A, B, C and D be Rs. 5x, Rs. 2x, Rs. 4x and Rs. 3x respectively.

Then, 4x - 3x = 1000

x = 1000.

B's share = Rs. 2x = Rs. (2 x 1000) = Rs. 2000.

A:B:C:D = 5:2:4:3
LET A=5000, B=2000 C=4000 D=3000
HERE C=4000 AND D= 3000 SO, C IS GETTING 1000 MORE THAN D
(CONDITION SATISFIED)
NATURALLY A=5000 AND B= 2000
SO, B'S SHARE =2000
