**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

PW= Rs. ${2809/(1+6/100)^2 }$ = Rs. (2809Ã—50/53Ã—50/53) = Rs. 2500

**2)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the sum be x. Then, S.I. =x.

âˆ´ Rate = ((100Ã—x)/(xÃ—6))%=50/3%

Now, sum = x, S.I. = 3x, Rate = 50/3 %.

Time= (100Ã—3x)/(xÃ—50/3) = 18 years.

**3)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

P = Rs. 10240, R=25/4%, T = 2 years 73 days

A=$[10240\times(1+25/(4\times100))^2\times(1+73/365\times25/(4\times100))]$

= Rs. $[10240\times17/16\times17/16\times(1+1/80)]$ = Rs.$(10240\times17/16 \times17/16\times81/80)$ = Rs.11704.50

CI = Rs. (11704.50-10240) = Rs. 1464.50

**4)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Interest for the first year = 25000 Ã— 1x 9.5/100 = 2375

Hence amount obtained = 25000+2375 = 27375.

This amount is invested again on compound interest,

So interest obtained = 27375 Ã— 1×9/100 = Rs. 2463.75

Hence the total amount = 27375+2463.75 = Rs. 29838. 75

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Scheme I of company E

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

= 120000 [((109Ã—109)/(100Ã—100)-1)]

= 120000 Ã— 1881/10000 = Rs. 22572

Scheme IV of company A

SI = (120000Ã—2Ã—10)/100 = Rs. 24000

Difference = 24000 – 22572 = Rs. 1428

**6)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let principal amount be Rs. x.

(xÃ—9Ã—2)/100 + (xÃ—9.5Ã—2)/100 = 14800

or (0.18+0.19) = 14800

X = 14800/0.37 = Rs. 40000

**7)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The formula for installments is :

P = $\frac{x}{1 + r/100} + \frac{x}{(1 + r/100)^2} + \frac{x}{(1 + r/100)^3}……\frac{x}{(1 + r/100)^n}$

thus, P = $\frac{625}{1 + 25/100} + \frac{625}{(1 + 25/100)^2} + \frac{625}{(1 + 25/100)^3} + \frac{625}{(1 + 25/100)^4}$

= 500 + 400 + 320 + 256

= Rs. 1476

**8)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let the principal be P.

So, amount = $P(1+10/100)^3$

Interest = $P(1+10/100)^3 – P$ = 331

From the options, if P = 1000,

$P(1.1)^3$ – P = 331

So, the principal is Rs 1000

**9)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Compound Interest = $P(1 + \frac{r}{100})^n – P$

=> CI = $40000 *(1 + 0.2)^3$ – 40000

= (40000 * 1.728) – 40000

= 40000 * 0.728

= 728 * 40

= 29120

**10)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

The amount received after two years at a compounded rate of 12.5 % p.a is $1600*(1+12.5\%)^2 = 1600*\frac{112.5}{100}*\frac{112.5}{100} =2025$

So, the interest obtained on the principal equals 2025-1600 = Rs. 425

**11)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the amount borrowed by P.

Simple Interest for the first year = P*1*10/100 = P/10

Simple interest for the second year = P/10

Total simple interest = P/5

Compound interest for the first year = P*1*10/100 = P/10

Principal for the second year = P + CI for first year = P + P/10 = 11P/10

CI for second year = 11P/10 * 1 * 10/100 = 11P/100

Total CI = P/10 + 11P/100 = 21P/100

Difference between CI and SI for the two years = 21P/100 – P/5 = P/100 = 500

=> Sum borrowed = 500*100 = Rs 50,000

**12)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let the rate be r.

SI = Prt/100 = P/8

r * 2 / 100 = 1/8

r = 50/ 8 = 6.25

**13)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

CI = $P(1+(\frac{r}{100})^n – P$

=> CI = $45000(1.2)^2 – 45000$ = 45000*0.44 = 19800

**14)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The interest rate is 8% pa. So, semi annual interest is 4%. The amount after 1.5 years (3 time periods) is

20,000 x (1 + $ \frac {4}{100}) ^ {3}$ = 22,497.28

So, the interest = 22,497.28 – 20,000 = 2497.28 rupees

**15)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

SI = P*R*T/100

Let principal be x

If the principal doubles itself after 4 years, then SI = 2x-x = x

x = x*r*4/100

r = 25% p.a

**16)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

SI = P*R*T/100 = 20000*10*3/100 = Rs 6000

**17)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

As we know that, when difference in the compound interest and simple interest for 2 years with a rate equals to r% on a sum is x, then sum will be = $ x \times (\frac{100}{r})^{2} $

So sum = $ 240 \times (\frac{100}{10})^{2} $ = $ 240 \times 100 $ = 24000

**18)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Simple Interest will be = $\frac{25000 \times 20 \times 3}{100}$ = Rs. 15000

**19)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Amount received by each child = $\frac{102300}{33} = 3100$

If there were 100 children then the amount received by each child = 102300/100 = 1023

Hence the required difference = 3100 – 1023 = 2077

Thus option B is correct.

**20)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Simple Interest = (50000)($\frac{12}{100}$)(4) = 24000

Total amount = 50000+24000 = 74000

**21)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Simple interest = $(30000 \times \frac{40}{100} \times 3) = 36000$

**22)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Simple interest = 6000 = $ 15000 \times \frac{r}{100} \times 2$ (Where r is the rate of interest)

Hence, r=20%

**23)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

The simple interest on Rs. 2000 for two years at 10% p.a is 2000*10%*2=Rs. 400

The compound interest on Rs. 2000 for two years at 10% p.a is 2000*(100%+10%)*(100%+10%) – 2000 = 2000*1.1*1.1 – 2000 = Rs. 420

Hence, the ratio is 400:420 = 20:21

**24)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

compound interest = 5000 – 5000(140/100)(140/100) = 4800

simple interest = 4000

Difference = 800

**25)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Simple Interest = PRT/100

P=15000

R=10%

T=3 years

So simple interest will be = 4500

**26)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Simple Interest = 1200*(20/100)*3 = 720

**27)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Principal amount = 200*100/10*2= 1000

Compound Interest = 1000-1000*(110/100)*(110/100) = 210

**28)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Simple interest will be = 10000*(20/100)*2 = 4000

**29)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

A = P + SI = P + PTR/100 = 25000 + 25000*10*8/100 = 45000

So, amount to be paid = Rs 45000

**30)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

SI = PTR/100 = 30000 * 2 * 5/100 = Rs 3000
