Answer & Explanation

1. 3
Req difference in the amount earned = (16/100 * 1000 – 14/100 * 1000 * 7200) * 12
= Rs. 21.168 lakh
2. 5
Req% increase = (7280 – 4240)/4240 * 100 = 72% approx
3. 1
Req Difference = (0.30 * 400 + 0.34 * 600 + 0.32 * 200 + 0.14 * 1000 + 0.16 * 800) – (0.24 * 400 + 0.18 * 600 + 0.32 * 200 + 0.16 * 1000 + 0.28 * 800) = 4
4. 3
Req % increase = (8440 – 6210)/6210 * 100 = 36% approx
5. 2
Req annual rate = {(9250 – 4880)/4880 * 100} * 1/4
= 22.3873 = 22.4% approx
