Working Notes:-

Calculation of Interest on Capitals of the Partners:

Pranav’s Interest on Capital:- 5,00,000 ✕ 10% = ₹ 50,000

Karan’s Interest on Capital:- 3,00,000 ✕ 10% = ₹ 30,000

Rahim’s Interest on Capital:- 2,00,000 ✕ 10% = ₹ 20,000

Total Interest on capitals of all the partners = ₹ 50,000 + ₹ 30,000 + ₹ 20,000 = ₹ 1,00,000

As appropriation (interest on capital) is more than the available profit. Thus interest on capital will be allowed upto the available profit in Interest on capital ratio i.e., 5 : 3 : 2
