#### Solution

 C’s Capital Account Dr. Cr. Particulars Rs Particulars Rs To Executor A/c 14,812.50 By Balance c/d By Interest on Capital A/c By Profit and Loss Suspense A/c By A’s Capital A/c By B’s Capital A/c By Reserve Fund A/c 7,500 112.50 750 3,500 1,750 1,200 14,812.50 14,812.50

Working Notes:

WN 1 Calculation of Interest on C’s Capital

Interest on Capital = 7500 xx 6/100 xx 3/12 = 112.50

WN2 Calculation of C’s share of profits
Profit of last financial year (2013-14) = 12,000

C's share in profits = 12000 xx 1/4 xx  3/12 = 750

Average Profit = (9000 + 10500 + 12000)/3 = 10500

Goodwill of the firm = 10,500 x 2 = 21,000

C's Share of Goodwill = 21000 xx 1/4 = 5250

A will pay = 5250 xx  2/3 = 3500

B will Pay = 5250 xx 1/3 = 1750

WN 4 Calculation of C’s Share in Reserve Fund

C's Share in Reserve Fund = 4800 xx 1/8 = 1200

Note: Since no information is provided with the share acquired by A and B, their gaining ratio is same as their new profit sharing ratio i.e. 2:1.
