Answer & Explanation

1. Answer: (D)

DIFFERENCE = Rs. [(10% of 4.75) – (8% of 4.75)]

= Rs. (2% of 4.75) lakhs

= Rs. 0.095 lakhs

= Rs. 9500.

2. Answer: (D)

Let the amounts invested in 2002 in Companies P and Q be Rs. 8x and Rs. 9xrespectively.

Then, interest received after one year from Company P = Rs. (6% of 8x)

= Rs. (48x/100)

and interest received after one year from Company Q = Rs. (4% of 9x)

= Rs. (36x/100)

Required ratio = 4/3

3. Answer: (D)

4. Answer: (C)

Amount received from Company P after one year (i.e., in 199) on investing Rs. 12 lakhs in it

= Rs. [12 + (8% of 12)] lakhs

= Rs. 12.96 lakhs.

Appreciation received on investment during the period of two years

= Rs. (14.256 – 12) lakhs

= Rs. 2.256 lakhs = Rs. 2, 25,600

5. Answer: (B)

Amount received from Company Q after one year on investment of Rs. 5 lakhs in the year

1996

= Rs. [5 + (6.5% of 5)] lakhs

= Rs. 5.325 lakhs.

Amount received from Company P after one year on investment of Rs. 5.325 lakhs in the year 1997

= Rs. [5.325 + (9% of 5.325)] lakhs

= Rs. 5.80425 lakhs

= Rs. 5, 80, 425
