Dear Student,

Adjustment required can be calculated as follows:

Particulars Partner A Partner B  Partner C Firm
Profits wrongly distributed 45,000 (Dr) 30,000 (Dr) 15,000 (Dr) 90,000(Cr)
Salary to be provided   1,500 (Cr)  4,500 (Cr)   1,500 (Cr)   7,500 (Dr)
Actual Profit which needs to be distributed in 3:3:2 is (90,000-7,500)=RS. 82,500 30,937.50 (Cr) 30,937.50 (Cr) 20,625 (Cr) 82,500 (Dr)
Since Guaranteed Profit to A is Rs 35,000, so difference of Rs. 4062.5 would be shared by B & C in their profit sharing ratio i.e 3:2 4062.50 (Cr) 2437.50 (Dr)   1625 (Dr) NIL
Net Adjustment  8,500 (Dr) 3,000 (Cr)  5,500 (Cr) NIL

So, the adjustment entry would be as follows:
Particulars L.F. Debit
A's Capital A/c Dr.    8,500  
  To B's Capital A/c       3,000
   To C's Capital A/c       5,500
(Being adjustment entry passed for required corrections)
