 A) Rs.600 B) Rs.500 C) Rs.900 D) Rs.450

 A) Rs.600

Ratio of the wages of A, B and C = 5 : 6 : 4

A's share : B's share : C's share

= $$\Large 6 \times 5$$ : $$\Large 4 \times 6$$ : $$\Large 9 \times 4$$

= 30 : 24 : 36 - 5 : 4 : 6

Therefore, A's share = $$\Large \frac{5}{15} \times 1800$$ = Rs.600
