working of the business.
ii. Sleeping partners: They contribute capital to the business and share profits and losses, but they are not involved in the
working of the business.
iii. Nominal partners: They only lend their names to the business. They neither contribute any capital to the business nor
share profits or losses.

mutual consent of all partners. They share only profits and have no liability.
v. Partners in profits only: They only share the profits of the business and do not take part in the working of the business.
vi. Limited partners: The liability of these partners is limited to the extent of their investment in the business. They do not take
part in the management of the business.
