    In partnership, each partner is personally liable to pay 100% of the partnership debts, means if there are not enough business assets to pay those debts then partners’ personal assets shall be sold off to pay business debts not just according to their profit/loss sharing ratio. According to partnership act if one partner is unable to pay his total liability share, then other partner shall be responsible for paying of remaining business debts. So in this case as business would fell short of 350000 rupees (800000-450000) Mr. Ali’s and Mr. Yasir’s personal assets will be sold off to pay remaining liabilities. According to profit/loss sharing ratio both partners' are liable to pay Rs. 400000 worth of liabilities. Mr. Ali will able to pay Rs. 400000 as his capital would be 225000 (450000/2), and his personal property worth Rs.200000 where as remaining liability was Rs.175000 ( 400000-225000), but if business is liquidated at this time then Mr. Yasir will be unable to pay his liabilities i.e. Rs. 400000 ( 800000 / 2), ( 400000-225000 = 175000) Rs. 175000 should be paid off from Mr. Yasir's personal property whereas his personal property worth only Rupees 125000. So Mr. Ali will have to pay off remaining liabilities of rupees 50000( 175000-125000) from his personal assets. But in this case Mr.Ali is only having Rs.25000 after paying off his liabilities so business will not able to pay remaining of its liabilities of rupees 25000.



    So in total Mr. Ali will pay rupees 425000( 225000 from his capital and 200000 worth of property) and Mr. Yasir will pay 350000( 225000 from his capital and 125000 worth of property)



    In total only Rs. 775000 worth of liabilities will be paid off remaining liabilities will never be paid off as their personal assets are felt short.
