please tell me about adjustment no. 3?

Dear Student, ‚Äčthis is to be solved as follows:
90% value of the Sundry Assets (taken by B) = Rs 7,200
100% value of Sundry Assets (taken by B) = Rs 7,200*90/100 = Rs 8,000
Hence, Sundry Assets of Rs 8,000 were taken over by B at 10% less than the Book Value i.e. Rs 7,200.

C took over the remaining Sundry Assets of Rs 9,000 (Rs 17,000-Rs 8,000) at 90% of the book value i.e. Rs 8,100 (Rs 9,000*90%) and took over the responsibility to discharge the Loan (Rs 1,500) with interest of Rs 300. Therefore, C's Capital should be debited with Rs 8,100 and credited with Rs 1,800 (Rs 1,500+Rs 300)
