Dear Student,

The solution to your query is provided below:

 X’s Capital A/c Dr. Cr. Particulars Amount (Rs) Particulars Amount (Rs) Drawings 6,000 Capital 7,200 X’s Executor’s A/c 18,230 Interest on Capital (WN) 525 Share of Joint life policy 4,355 Y’s Capital A/c 9,450 Profit Share 2,700 24,230 24,230

Working Note:

Interest on Capital

Capital given is the Closing Capital = 7,200

However, interest is to be calculated on opening Capital

Therefore, we calculate opening capital first

Opening Capital = Closing Capital + Drawings – Share of Profit

= 7,200 + 6,000 – 2,700 = 10,500

Interest on Capital = 10,500 × 5% = 525
