Query: Sir while applying capitalization rate to amounts of payments why have we applied the rate to all months like 1st payment is made on 1 jan and other is on first may so we should take 4 months and same for other payments

Response: Both methods are same. Just difference of style.

30,000 x 9.89% x 4/12 = 989

50,000 x 9.89% x 5/12 = 2,060

65,000 x 9.89% x 3/12 = 1,607
