Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below:A, B...
E has got the maximum number of flats and number of flats with A is equal to the sum of a number of flats with B and C. As there are 9 flats, so possible solutions are when E, A, B, C and D have 3, 2, 1, 1 and 2 or 4, 2, 1. 1 and 1 flats respectively.
Case I:B and D have one flat and two flats respectively.
Let the value of a flat be Rs. x. So, the amount of cash with B = x.
So total assets of B = 2x
Total assets of As D has got assets worth 20 lakhs more than that of B Case II:
B and D have one flat each.
Let value of a flat be Rs. x. So, amount of cash with B = x
⇒ Total assets of B = 2x
Total assets of As D has got assets worth 20 lakhs more than B Here the value of x is coming as negative. So this case is not possible.
We can collate the final distribution of assets in the following table: According to the table B and D buy 1 and 2 flat respectively.
So, Only for B and D, it is possible to find the exact value of their total assets.​
Only 2 brothers find out the exact value of their total assets.
Hence the correct option is B.
