**Quantity A:**

Amount invested by Mrs Sonia is Rs. 60,000.

Ratio of profit between the partners is 3 : 5.

Ratio of profit = Amount invested by one partner × time period of investment ⦂ Amount invested by other partner × time period of investment

Let the required amount which should be invested by Mrs. Anita is Rs x.

⇒ Ratio of share of profit = Sonia : Anita

⇒ Amount invested by Sonia × time period of investment ⦂ Amount invested by Anita × time period of investment

⇒ 3 : 5 = 60,000 × 1 : x × 1

⇒ x = (60,000 × 5)/3

⇒ x = Rs 1, 00,000

**Quantity B: ****Rs. 95000**

**∴ **Quantity A > Quantity B
