(b) the percentage of the corpus of the CFT represented by the share of the corpus to which the lower entity is entitled, or that the lower entity is entitled to acquire;

or, if those percentages differ, the greater of those percentages.

(c) ascertaining whichever of the following is applicable:


(i) the income of the trust for the year of income;
