if in any ques it is mentioned that ithout affecting their boo value, so do we have to ditribute profit n loss in sacrificing ratio in uch ques ?

Hey Limka,  you are right. For recording Net Effect in the Partners' Capital Sacrificing Ratio is to be calculated and an adjusting entry is to be passed.
However, the calculation of Net Effect provided by R C Gupta is correct. 
In addition to it, Calculation of Scarifying Ratio is given below.​
Sacrificing Ratio = Old Ratio - New RatioX = 510-210=310Y =  310-310=NilZ =  510-210=-310 
Since, here, Z is gainaing and X is sacrifing, thus, the adjusting entry would be.
Date Particulars L.F. Debit Amount
Credit Amount
  Z’s Capital A/c Dr.   3,600  
     To X’s Capital A/c       3,600
  (Z, gaining partner will compensate X for the his sacrifice)        

Z will give = 12,000×310=Rs 3,600X will take =  12,000×310=Rs 3,600

profit and loss cr.= 24000
advt. suspense dr. = (12000)
net = 24000- 12000 = 12000
12000 divided in old ratio = plus 6000 to x, plus 3600 to y, plus 2400 to Z
12000 taken back in new ratio = minus2400 from X, minus 3600 from Y, minus 6000 from Z

net = plus 3600 to X and minus 3600 to Z
entry= Z' capital a/c dr 3600
To X's capital Aa/c 3600
