Answer & Explanation

**(D)**

Amount spent on labour

= (90/360)*1500000

= 3, 75, 000

**(A)**

Amount spent on bricks, steel and cement

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

**(B)**

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

= (36/72)*100 = 50%

**(C)**

Amount spent on labour and supervision

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

= 6, 00,000
