Answer & Explanation

  1. (D)          

        Amount spent on labour

= (90/360)*1500000

      = 3, 75, 000

  1. (A) 

Amount spent on bricks, steel and cement

= [(54+54+72)/360]*100 = 50%

  1. (B) 

        % of amount spent on timber with respect to the amount spent on cement

        = (36/72)*100 = 50%

  1. (C)         

Amount spent on labour and supervision

= `[(90+54)/360]*1500000

= 6, 00,000
