__Answers & Solutions:__

**1) Answer (B)**

Compound Interest after 2 years = 1414.4

$P(1+\frac{8}{100})^2 – P$ = 1414.4

=> $P(1.08)^2 – P$ = 1414.4

=> 0.1664P = 1414.4

=> P = 8500

Therefore amount = 8500 + 1414.14 = 9914.14

**2) Answer (C)**

Let principal amount be Rs. x.

(x×9×2)/100 + (x×9.5×2)/100 = 14800

or (0.18+0.19) = 14800

X = 14800/0.37 = Rs. 40000

**3) Answer (A)**

Scheme I of company E

CI = 120000 [(1+ 9/100)^2- 1]

= 120000 [((109×109)/(100×100)-1)]

= 120000 × 1881/10000 = Rs. 22572

Scheme IV of company A

SI = (120000×2×10)/100 = Rs. 24000

Difference = 24000 – 22572 = Rs. 1428

**4) Answer (B)**

25000 × 109.5/100 = 27375

And again, 27375 × 109/100 = Rs. 29838. 75

**5) Answer (D)**

Interest earned by Abhishek = 45000 × (1+ 8/100)^2- 45000

= 45000 × 27/25 × 27/25 = 45000

= 52488 – 45000 = 7488

Interest earned by Jeevan = (45000×10.5×2)/100 = 9450

Required difference = 9450 – 7488 = 1962

Hence, Jeevan earned Rs. 1962 more.

**6) Answer (B)**

(30000×9.5×2)/100 + (48000× 109/100× 109/100- 48000) = 5700 + (57028.8 – 48000)

= 5700 + 9028.8 = Rs. 14728.80

**7) Answer (A)**

SI = $\frac{7300 6 2}{100}$ = 876

CI = 7300[1 + $\frac{6}{100}$]2 – 7300 = 902.28

Difference = Rs26.28

**8) Answer (A)**

Let *x* be the amount lent for 6%

16800 – *x* is the amount lent for 8%

$\frac{2×6}{100}$ + $\frac{2(16800-x)8}{100}$ + 16800 = 19000

*x* = 12200

**9) Answer (C)**

S.I = PRT/100 = (1000×20×4)/100= Rs. 800

**10) Answer (D)**

Amount of Rs.100 for 1 year when compounded half-yearly = Rs.$[100\times(1+3/100)^2 ]$=Rs.106.09

Effective rate =(106.09-100) %=6.09.
