**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 6000 × 2 = 12000, whereas those by B are 10000 × 10 = 100000. The ratio of these money-months is 3:25. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 5600 × $3/{3 + 25}$ = Rs. 600.
