**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

**2) Answer (E)**

**3) 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

**4) 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.

**5) Answer (A)**

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

= 5700 + 9028.8 = Rs. 14728.80

**6) Answer (C)**

Let the rate of interest be R% per annum.

CI = P [(1 + $\frac{R}{100})^{T}$ -1]

=5596.8

= 22000 [(1 + $\frac{R}{100})^{2}$-1]

$\frac{5596.8}{22000}$ = (1+ $\frac{R}{100})^{2}$ -1

(1 + $\frac{R}{100})^{2}$ = 1 + $\frac{5596.8}{22000}$

(1 + $\frac{R}{100})^{2}$ = $\frac{22000 + 5596.8}{22000}$ = $\frac{27596.8}{22000}$

(1+$\frac{R}{100})^{2}$ = $\frac{275968}{220000}$ = $\frac{12544}{10000}$

$\frac{R}{100}$ = $\sqrt{\frac{12544}{10000}}$ – 1 = $\frac{112}{100}$

= $\frac{R}{100}$ = $\frac{112}{100}$ – 1 = $\frac{112 – 100}{100}$ = $\frac{12}{100}$

R=12

SI = $\frac{Principal × Time × Rate}{100}$ = $\frac{22000 × 2 × 100}{100}$ = Rs.5280

**7) Answer (B)**

Let the rate of interest be r

Simple Interest = $\frac{P t r}{100}$

10800 = $\frac{22500}{100}$ x 4 x r

r = $\frac{10800}{22500}$ x $\frac{100}{4}$ = 12%

Compound Interest = 22500(1 + $\frac{12}{100}$)^{2} – 22500

= 22500 x $\frac{112}{100}$ x $\frac{112}{100}$ – 22500

= 28224 – 22500

= 5724

**8) Answer (A)**

PTR/100 = 35672 => P = 35672 * 100 / (7*8) = 63700

Compound interest in 2 years = P(1+r/100)^2 – P = 63700(1+1/50)^2 – 63700 = 2573.48

**9) Answer (B)**

Let the rate of interest be r

Simple Interest = $\frac{P t r}{100}$

10800 = $\frac{22500}{100}$ x 4 x r

r = $\frac{10800}{22500}$ x $\frac{100}{4}$ = 12%

Compound Interest = 22500(1 + $\frac{12}{100}$)^{2} – 22500

= 22500 x $\frac{112}{100}$ x $\frac{112}{100}$ – 22500

= 28224 – 22500

= 5724

**10) 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

**11) Answer (C)**

Given, Principal = Rs.X

Rate of interest = R%

Time duration = 6 years

Amount after 6 years = Rs.3X

Simple Interest after 6 years = Rs.3X – Rs.X = Rs.2X

$\dfrac{X\times R\times6}{100} = 2X$

$R = \dfrac{100}{3}$% $= \dfrac{1}{3}$

Amount received after 3 years at compound interest $= X \times \dfrac{4}{3}\times\dfrac{4}{3}\times\dfrac{4}{3} = 2.37X$

Given, $2.37X = 38394$

=> $X = 16200$

Hence, Principal = Rs.16200

Simple Interest at $\dfrac{1}{3}$ in 4 years = $4\times\dfrac{1}{3}\times16200 = Rs.21600$

**12) Answer (C)**

Raman deposited Rs.P in a scheme for 3 year at the rate of 10% per annual simple interest.

So interest obtained from that scheme after 3 years = $\text{Deposited amount}\times \text{Rate of interest}\times \text{Time}$

= $P\times 10$%$\times 3$

= $30P$%

= $\dfrac{30P}{100}$

= .3P

Total amount obtained after 3 years = Interest + Deposited amount

= .3P + P

= 1.3P

Now as per question, we have to add Rs.1000 in that amount.

So it will be (1.3P + 1000). Eq.(1)

Now it will be deposited in bank at the rate of 20% per annual compound interest for 2 years. Then compound interest after 2 years = Rs. 6160 Eq.(2)

Formula for compound interest (CI) = $\text{Principal amount}[(1 + \dfrac{\text{Rate of interest}}{100})^{\text{Time}} – 1]$

Put the values from Eq.(1) and Eq.(2) in the formula.

$6160 = (1.3P + 1000)[(1 + \dfrac{20}{100})^{2} – 1]$

$6160 = (1.3P + 1000)[(\dfrac{120}{100})^{2} – 1]$

$6160 = (1.3P + 1000)[(\dfrac{6}{5})^{2} – 1]$

$6160 = (1.3P + 1000)[(\dfrac{36}{25}) – 1]$

$6160 = (1.3P + 1000)[(\dfrac{36-25}{25})]$

$6160 = (1.3P + 1000)[(\dfrac{11}{25})]$

$6160 = (1.3P + 1000)[(\dfrac{11}{25})]$

$6160\times\dfrac{25}{11} = (1.3P + 1000)$

$560\times25 = (1.3P + 1000)$

14000 = (1.3P + 1000)

14000 – 1000 = 1.3P

1.3P = 13000

$P = \dfrac{13000}{1.3}$

$P = \dfrac{130000}{13}$

P = 10000.

Hence, option c is the correct answer.

**13) Answer (B)**

We have CI=$P(1+\dfrac{R}{100})^{2}-P$

CI=$P((1+\dfrac{R}{100})^{2}-1)$

CI=$32000((1+\dfrac{R}{100})^{2}-1)$

let R/100 =r

CI=$32000((1+r)^{2}-1)$

CI=$32000*(r^{2}+2r)$

SI=$32000*2*R/100$

SI=64000r

$32000*(r^{2}+2r)-64000r$=720

$3200(r^{2}+2r)-6400r$=72

$3200r^{2}+6400r-6400r$=72

$r^{2}$=72/3200

$r^{2}$=0.0225

r=0.15

R=0.15*100

R=15%

**14) Answer (C)**

A=$P(1+\dfrac{R}{100})^{3}$

125000=$P(1+\dfrac{R}{100})^{3}$

195312.5=$P(1+\dfrac{R}{100})^{5}$

$(1+\dfrac{R}{100})^{2}$=1.5625

$1+(R/100)$=1.25

R/100 =0.25

R=25%

**15) Answer (E)**

As per the given question,

$\frac{P \times 3 \times 17}{100} = 2856$

$P = 5600$

He invested the total amount i.e (5600 + 2856) 8456 in a scheme for two years at 20% (17% +3%).

For the first year, the interest accumulated will be 20% of 8456 i.e 1691.2

The total amount will be 8456 + 1691.2 = 10147.2

For the second year, the interest accumulated will be 20% of 10147.2 i.e 2029.44

Total interest for two years will be 1691.2 + 2029.44 = 3720.64(approximately)

Hence, option E is the correct answer.
