Best answer

Correct answer is (c) Rs. 5,250

Explanation: The total amount received from the re-issue of 500 shares as fully paid is:

500 shares x Rs. 10/share (face value) + Rs. 2/share (premium) = Rs. 6,000

Since Rs. 750 has already been transferred to Capital Reserve, the remaining amount to be transferred to Bank A/c is:

Rs. 6,000 - Rs. 750 = Rs. 5,250
