The revaluation surplus is a reserve and all reserves are calculated by taking 100% of the parent plus P’s% of S’s post-acquisition movement in the reserves.
We treat both the revaluation reserve and retained earnings separately, so for this question where it is asking for the group reserves you can ignore everything to do with the revaluation reserve. Just focus on the retained earnings figures.
