**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

We know that simple interest is same for every year. We have been given that he earned 2500 in 2.5 years.

Hence, he must be earning 1000 in interest every year. Thus, the initial amount invested by him must be 8000 – 2000 = 6000

Thus, the rate of interest must be 1000*100/6000 = 16.67 %

**2) Answer (C)**

Since it is compounded half yearly, there are 4 time periods with a rate of 5%.

Amount = $10000*[1.05]^4 = 12155.06$ ~ 12155

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**3) Answer (B)**

He gets 16800 from the second bank which offers a simple interest of 10 percent per annum. Let us assume that he deposited x with second bank.

Hence

x*1.2 = 16800

=> x = 14000

Hence, he must have got 14000*2 = 28000 from the first bank.

Let P be the original sum that he deposited in the bank. Hence, we have

P*.8*5 + P = 28000

=> 1.4P = 28000

=> P = 28000/1.4 = 20000

**4) Answer (B)**

Let us assume that Mukesh deposited x in second bank. So at the end of 2 years it will become 1.21x in bank 2.

Now he must have invested 30000 – x in bank 1.

The interest earned will be (30000 – x)*.12*2 = .24*30000 – .24x = 7200 – .24x

Hence, the amount will be 7200 – .24x + 30000 – x = 37200 – 1.24x

We have been given that 1.21x = 37200 – 1.24x

=> 2.24x = 37200

=> x = 16607.14

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**5) Answer (D)**

The principal in the bank with simple interest is Rs. 20,000/2 = Rs. 10,000

Interest earned = 10,000 * 2 * 10% = Rs. 2,000

The principal in the bank with compound interest is Rs. 20,000/2 = Rs. 10,000

Interest earned = $10,000 * 1.1^2$ – 10,000 = Rs. 2,100

Total interest earned = 2,000 + 2,100 = Rs. 4,100

**6) Answer (A)**

Let $x$ be the sum of money invested at simple interest and $r$ be the rate of interest.

The interest at the end of 2 years=$P$x$t$x$r/100=2xr$ -(1)

The interest at the end of 2 years if $r$ is increased by 3%=$2x(r+3)$ -(2)

Given (2)-(1)=450

=>$6x=450$

∴$x= 7500$

**7) Answer (B)**

Each of their share is proportional to the product of the investment and the time period. Since the share is the same for both

A’s investment x time = B’s investment x time

ie 10000 x 9 = 18000 x time

So, time = 5 months

**8) Answer (B)**

Simple Interest = 1000*3*10/100 = Rs 300

Compound Interest = $1000(1+10/100)^3 -1000$ = 1331 – 1000 = Rs 331

Hence, Simple Interest would be lesser by Rs 31.

**9) Answer (A)**

Let the principal be P.

Hence, his interest from first investment is P*10.5*2/100 = 21P/100.

From the second investment, his interest = $P(1+x/100)^2 – P $

As these two are equal, 21P/100 =$P(1+x/100)^2 – P $

Cancelling principal on both sides,

$(1+x/100)^2$ = 121/100

Taking square root

1+x/100 = 11/10

x=10%.

**10) Answer (A)**

P x R X T / 100 is the simple interest

So, P x (R+3) x 2/100 – P x R x 2/ 100 = 450

Solving for P, we get P = 7500 Rs.
