Expert Answer:

We believe you must be facing difficulty in computation of number of shares to work with for passing the journal entries. In the above case, we know that Zee Ltd. invited applications for 40,000 shares but actually received applications for 46,400 shares. So, we will bifurcate the data in following three categories.
Category (A): Applied 4,000 and Alloted Nil
Category (B): Applied 4,000 and Allotted 1,600
Category (C): Applied 38,400 (46,400 - 8,000) and Allotted 38,400.
Hope this helps you complete the solution. In case of any doubt, feel free to get back to us with the worked out solution.
