    working notes:

    1. Loss on Realisation = 1,000

    Loss on Realisation transferred to Kumar’s capital account = 1,000×5/10 = 500

    Loss on Realisation transferred to Shyam’s capital account = 1,000 × 3/10 = 300

    Loss on Realisation transferred to Ratan’s capital account=1,000 × 2 = 200

    2. Creditors = 1,20,000

    Out of which 20,000 were untraceable

    So the creditors were paid in full settlement amounting 1,20,000 – 20,000 = 1,00,000
