**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

Profit of B = $\dfrac{15000\times20\times2}{100} – \dfrac{15000\times15\times2}{100} = 6000-4500 = Rs.1500$

**2) Answer (C)**

Given, Amount = Rs.15000

Simple Interest at 6 p.c.p.a. for 2 years will be $\dfrac{15000\times6\times2}{100} = Rs.1800$

Amount at the end of 1st year at 6 p.c.p.a Compound Interest = 106% of 15000 = Rs.15900

Amount at the end of 2nd year at 6 p.c.p.a CI = 106% of 15900 = Rs.16854

Total Compound Interest = 16854-15000 = Rs.1854

Therefore, Extra amount of money he would have earned = 1854-1800 = Rs.54

**3) Answer (A)**

Given rate of interest r= time period t

(25/49)P=(P*r*r)/100

$r^{2}$=2500/49

r=50/7 %

**4) Answer (B)**

For 7 years amount=900

For 5 years amount=750

Interest for 2 years =900-750

=150

Interest for 1 year=75

Interest for 5 years=5*75

=375

Principal value at the beginning is 750-375=375

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**5) Answer (D)**

Amount received in first year = 104% of 20000 = Rs.20800

Amount received in second year = 108% of Rs.20800 = Rs.22464

Hence, Total Compound Interest = Rs.22464 – Rs.20000 = Rs.2464

**6) Answer (B)**

Let the principal be Rs.100

Interest earned from Scheme A $= \dfrac{100\times10\times2}{100} = Rs.20$

Amount earned from Scheme B:

For 1st year → $110$% of $100 = Rs.110$

For 2nd year → $110$% of $110 = Rs.121$

Interest earned from Scheme B $= 121-100 = Rs.21$

Given Difference between SI and CI $= Rs.12$

$Re.1 → Rs.12$

$Rs.100 → ?$

Hence, Total Interest $= 100*12 = Rs.1200$

**7) Answer (A)**

Principal(P) = 15000

Rate of Interest (R) = ?

Time period(t) = 3 years

$ Amount = P(1+ \Large\frac{R}{100})^{t} $

$ 16391 = 15000{(1+ \Large\frac{R}{100})^{3}}$

$ (1+ \Large\frac{R}{100})^{3} = \Large\frac{16391}{15000} $

$ (1+ \Large\frac{R}{100})^{3}$ $ = 1.0927$

$ (1+ \Large\frac{R}{100})^{3}$ $ = 1.03^3$

$ (1+ \Large\frac{R}{100})^{3}$ = $(\Large\frac{103}{100})^{3} $

$ R = 3$% p.a.

**8) Answer (D)**

Principal(P) = ?

Rate of Interest (R) = 2%

Time period(t) = 3 years

Given, Compound Interest = 1530.20

$ 1530.20 = P\Large(1+\frac{R}{100})^{t}$ $ – P$

$1530.20 = P[\Large(1+\frac{2}{100})^{3}$ $ – 1]$

$P = \Large\frac{1530.2}{(1.02)^3 – 1} $

$P = Rs. 25,000 /-$

Simple Interest = $\Large\frac{PTR}{100}$

$ S.I. = \Large\frac{25000\times2\times3}{100}$

$ S.I. = Rs. 1500/- $

**9) Answer (C)**

Simple Interest = $\Large\frac{PTR}{100}$

Principal(P) = ?

Given, Rate of Interest (R) = 6%

Time period(t) = 2 years

$432 = \Large\frac{PTR}{100}$

$P = \Large\frac{432\times100}{TR}$

$P = \Large\frac{432\times100}{12}$

P = Rs. 3600/-

Compound Interest is calculated by

$C.I. = P(1+\Large\frac{R}{100})^{t}$ $- P$

$C.I. = 3,600(1+\Large\frac{6}{100})^{2} -$ $3600$

Compound Interest = Rs. 444.96/-

**10) Answer (A)**

Effective Simple Interest for Scheme A for 2 years $= 8\times2 = 16$%

Effective Compound Interest for Scheme B for 2 years $= 7+7+\dfrac{7\times7}{100} = 14+0.49 = 14.49$%

Hence, Scheme A offers more interest than Scheme B.

**11) Answer (B)**

Given the Principal(P) = Rs. 40,000/-

Rate of Interest (R) = 4%

Time period(t) = __ years

Compound Interest = 4994.56/-

$CI = P(1+\frac{R}{100})^{t} – P$

$CI = 40,000{(1+\frac{4}{100})^{t} – 1}$

$ 4994.56 = 40,000{(1.04)^t – 1}$

$ \Large\frac{4994.56}{40,000}$ = $(1.03)^t – 1$

$ \Large\frac{4994.56}{40,000} +$ 1 = $(1.03)^t $

$\Large\frac{44994.56}{40,000}$ = $(1.03)^t $

$t = 3 years$

**12) Answer (A)**

Let the sum of money be Rs.10000

Simple Interest at 15% per annum for 2 years will be:

$\dfrac{10000\times15\times2}{100} = Rs.3000$

Amount at the end of 1st year with Compound Interest = 115% of Rs.11500

Amount at the end of 2nd year with Compound Interest = 115% of 11500 = Rs.13225

Total Compound Interest = 13225 – 10000 = Rs.3225

Difference between SI and CI = Rs.3225-3000 = Rs.225

Given that the difference = Rs.9000

225 → 9000

10000 → ?

= $\dfrac{10000\times9000}{225} = Rs.400000$

**13) Answer (C)**

Difference between Compound Interest and Simple Interest for 2 years = $\frac{P(r)^2}{100} = \frac{30000(12)^2}{100} = 432$

So the answer is option C.

**14) Answer (D)**

Given Principal = Rs.8000

Rate of interest = 2.5%

Compound interest earned in 1st year = 2.5% of Rs.8000 = Rs.200

Amount at the end of 1st year = Rs.8000+Rs.200 = Rs.8200

Compound interest earned in 2nd year = 2.5% of Rs.8200 = Rs.205

Amount at the end of 2nd year = Rs.8200+Rs.205 = Rs.8405

Here, After 2 years, Interest = Rs.8405 – Rs.8000 = Rs.405

Hence, Required number of years = 2 years

**15) Answer (B)**

Gain for 3 years = $\Large(\frac{5000\times8\times3}{100})-(\frac{5000\times6\times3}{100})$ $= 1200-900 = Rs.300$

Gain for 1 year $= \Large\frac{300}{3}$ $= Rs.100$
