Ratio \: of \: shares\: of A, B, C, D = \left ( 18\ast 4 \right ) : \left ( 25\ast 2 \right ) : \left ( 28\ast 5 \right ) : \left ( 21\ast 3 \right )

                                                                = 72 : 50 : 140 : 63

Let \: total\: rent\: be\: x then\: A's\: share = 72x/325

So, 72x/325 = 360

=> x = Rs. 1625
