**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

Let x be the principal invested in scheme A

C.I=Amount -Principal= x(1 + .1)$^{2}$ – x=.21x…..(1)

S.I=(P x t x r)/100 =(16000-x) x 2 x .12=3840 – .24x….(2)

given, C.I + S.I=3504

=> .21x + 3840 .24x= 3504

∴ x= 11200

Thus, money invested in scheme B=16000-11200=R.s 4800

**2) Answer (C)**

S.I=900=6/100 x 3 x P

=>P=5000

C.I amount=A=P(1 + r/100)$^{t}$=5000(1 + .06)${3}$

=5955.08

=>C.I=955.08

∴ the person would get Rs 55.08 additionally.

**3) Answer (B)**

A’s profit = 10,000 x 9 x r/100

B’s profit = 18000 x t x r/100

But the profits are same so,

10,000 x 9 x r/100 = 18000 x t x r/100

so, t = 5 months.

**4) 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.

**5) 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%.

**6) 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.

**7) Answer (A)**

Let the initial investment be 16x. Hence, he puts 8x in A, 4x in B, 2x in C and 2x in D. Hence, overall profit/ loss % = (8x*5%+4x*-8%+2x*0+2x * 20%)/ 16x = (40x-32x+40x)/1600x = 48x/1600x = 3% profit.

**8) 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

**9) 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

=>$6x=450$

∴$x= 7500$

**10) 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

**11) 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.

**12) 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

**13) 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.

**14) 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 %

**15) Answer (C)**

Since the amount on the same principle is same, the amount of interest should be same from both investments.

Interest earned in DBS = p[1.15]*[1.2] – p = 0.38p

Now, the interest in ABC = p * x/100

Equating both, we get x = 38
