The above question is basically a simple case of Guarantee of profits. The admitted partner has been promised a minimum of Rs 2,00,000 of profits when the firm has incurred a loss of Rs 10,00,000. The first and foremost thing required to be calculate is the new profit sharing ratio so as to no actual share of Rohit in the losses of firm. Here, 1/5 of firms losses means Rs 2,00,000 is share of loss to be borne by Rohit. However, as he has been guaranteed a minimum of Rs 2,00,000 profits, so, his loss plus extra profit to be given will be borne by Ankur and Bobby along with their own share of losses in 4 : 1, i.e. extra Rs 3,20,000 for Ankur and Rs 80,000 for Bobby.

Total Profits and Losses to be distributed between Ankur, Bobby and Rohit comes to:
Losses to Ankur: Rs 4,80,000 + 3,20,000 = Rs 8,00,000
Losses to Bobby: Rs 3,20,000 + 80,000 = Rs 4,00,000
Profits to Rohit: Rs 2,00,000

The computation of 4,80,000 and 3,20,000 is simple division of Rs 10,00,000 of losses in new ration of 12:8:5.
