Correct Answers
 Option – D
let the sum be P.
CI = P(1 + 20/100)^{2} – P = 770
=> 1.44P – P = 770
=> 0.44P = 770
=> P = 1750
Now rate of interest = 1% pm = 12% p.a.
SI = 1750 × 12 × 3 / 1000 = 630
 Option D
Let the sum be x.
When compounded annually,
Amount = x(1+10/100)
2 =121x/100
When compounded halfyearly,
Amount = x(1+5/100)
4 =194481x/160000
Now,
194481x/160000 121x/100 =440.5
=> 881x/160000 = 440.5
= x= 80000
 Option – B
(SI)1 – (SI)2 = (PT)/100 x (R1 – R2)
96 = (P x 5/100) x (3)
So, P = 640
 Option –B
Let the sum be P and annual interest be I.
From the 1
st condition, P + 3I = 2365 … (1)
According to the 2
nd condition, P + 5I = 2655 … (2)
On solving the equations we get, P = Rs 1930 and I = Rs 145
R = 145 × 100/1930 = 7.5% ( Approx)
 Option A
R = ( SI × 100/ ( P × T) = 6800× 100 / (17000 × 4) = 10%
CI = P ( 1 + R /100)^{T} – P
= 17000{ ( 1.1)^{4} – 1 }
= 17000 × 1.464 – 1) = 7889.7
 Option – A
As we know that amount of simple interest that we get in each year remains same.
So let’s assume Principal Amount invested is Rs P and interest of one year is Rs A.
Hence according to the 1
st condition, P + 3A = 5000 .. (1)
Similarly, P + 5A = 5450 .. (2)
From both the equations we will get,
P = Rs 4325 and A = Rs 225
So, R = 225/4325 × 100 = 5.2%
 Option – A
Let Principal = P
Compound interest at 20% per annum for 2 years = P(1+20/100)^{2}– P = 44% of P = 880
P = 2000
Now SI for 4 years @ 10 % = 40% of 2000 = 800
 Option – B
P = Rs 20000; R = 15% p.a. = 7.5 % per halfyear;
T = 1 year = 2 halfyears
If an amount P is compounded at interest rate of r for T years then the total amount which we Will get = P (1 + r/100)^{T}
∴ Amount = Rs.[20000 X (1 +7.5/100) X (1 +7.5/100)]
= 23112.5
 Option – C
Let’s assume interest rate = R%
Total interest paid by Vinod = Rs (6000 + 8000 – 10000)
= Rs 4000
Now total interest paid = Interest on Rs 10000 for 4 years + Interest on Rs 4000 (10000 – 6000) for 2 years
=> 4000 = (10000 X 4 X R)/100+(4000 X 2 X R)/100
=>4000 = 400R + 80R
480R = 4000
R = 8 1/3 %
 Option C
As we know that when an amount P is invested for two years at rate of R% per annum then the difference between SI and Ci = PR^{2}/100
Overall gain = 3000 × 0.12)^{2} = 432
