The solution is “Profit on forfeiture = 3000 - Loss on reissue 1000 = Rs. 2000 transferred to Capital Reserve”.
How the loss on reissue became 1000( Rs 1 * no. of shares; no. of shares aint given)

Bank a/c                         Dr.18,000
Share forfeiture a/c        Dr.   2,000
To Equity Share Capital a/c        20,000
[Being 2,000 shares reissued @ Rs.9
per share fully paid up]

Share forfeiture a/c       Dr. 1,000
To Capital Reserve a/c       1,000
[Being gain on reissue of forfeited
shares transferred to capital reserve]

WORKING NOTES:-
Share forfeiture Cr.           = Rs.3,000
(-)Share forfeiture Dr.        = Rs.2,000
Capital reserve      = Rs.1,000

Hence amount transferred to capital reserve is Rs.1,000. Therefore option (C) 1,000 is correct.
