A.8     B.10     C.12     D. Cannot be determined     E. None of these

Answer & Explanation

1. (c) 
Amount = Rs. [200 X (1+ 5/100)^3 + 200(1 +( 5/100))^2  + 200(1 + 5/100)
= Rs. [200 X (21/20) X (21/20) X (21/20)  +200 X (21/20) X (21/20) + 200 X 21/20 ].
= Rs. [200 X (21/20)[(21/20) X (21/20)  + (21/20) +1] = Rs. 662.02

Principal= Rs.16,000;
Time=9 months = 3 quarters;
Rate = 20%, it will be 20/4 = 5%
So lets solve this question now

Let Rate will be R

As per question we need something like following
So answer is 4 years

So S.I. = 840/2=420
So Sum = (S.I.*100)/(R*T)

So difference between simple interest and compound interest will be
464.10 – 400 = 64.10

Difference in CI and SI for 2 years=Rs(696.30-660)=Rs 36.30
SI for one year = Rs 330.
therefore SI on Rs 330 for 1 year = Rs 36.30
therefore,Rate= (100*36.30/330*1)% = 11%
