Expert Answer:

 
A: B : C = 50000 × 6 : 60000 × 4 : 80000 × 5
             = 300000 : 240000 : 400000
             = 30 : 24 : 40
             = 15 : 12 : 20
Total earning = Rs. 18800
A's share in earning = (15/47)×18800 = Rs. 6000              ....   15:12:20 ; 15 + 12 + 20 = 47
B's share in earning = (12/47)×18800 = Rs. 4800  
C's share in earning = (20/47)×18800 = Rs. 8000
