Solution:

C) 7%
Explanation: Amount after 2.5 yrs = 3525, after 2 yrs = 3420 So SI for half yr = 3525-3420 = 105, so for 1 yr SI = 105*2 = 210 P + 2*SI = 3420
So P = 3420 – 2*210 = 3000 So 3000*r*2/100 = 420

QUESTION: 2

### Rs 1200 becomes Rs 1632 after 4 years. If the rate of interest is increased by 2%, what will be the amount then?

Solution:

D) Rs 1,728 Explanation: Increase in interest in 4 yrs with rate 2%= 1200*4*2/100 = 96 So amount = 1632+96 = 1728

QUESTION: 3

### Rs 240 amounts to Rs 259.2 in 2 years, what will Rs 320 amount to in 4 yrs?

Solution:

E) Rs 371.2 Explanation: Interest on Rs 240 in 2 yrs = 259.2 – 240 = 19.2 So interest on Rs 320 = 19.2*(320/240)*(4/2) = 51.2 So amount = 320+51.2

QUESTION: 4

Arun divides Rs 4702 among A, B, and C, so that if the amounts being invested at 4% simple interest, the amounts received after 2, 3 and 4 yrs by A, B, and C respectively is equal. Find the share of B?

Solution:

B) Rs 1,556 Explanation: 4702 will be divided in ratio – 1/[100+rt1] : 1/[100+rt2] : 1/[100+rt3] 1/[100+4*2] : 1/[100+4*3] : 1/[100+4*4] 1/108 : 1/112 : 1/116
= 812 : 783 : 756
So B gets 783/(812+783+756) * 4702 = 1566

B) Rs 3,200 Explanation: Parts will be divided in ratio – 1/r1t1 : 1/r2t2 1/6*5 : 1/8*4
32 : 30 = 16 : 15
At 6% = 16/(16+15) * 6200

QUESTION: 6

What annual payment will discharge a debt of Rs 15,750 due in 3 years with rate if interest being 5% per annum?

Solution:

A) Rs 5,000 Explanation: I = 100*A / [100*t + rt(t-1)/2] I = 100*15750 / [100*3 + 5*3(3-1)/2] = 100*15750/315

QUESTION: 7

Rs 15,000 is to be invested in 2 schemes, one part is invested in scheme A which offers 9.5% rate of interest and remaining part is invested in scheme B which offers 5% rate on interest. After 3 years, a total of Rs 3600 is received as simple interest. What is the part invested in scheme A?

Solution:

A) Rs 10,000 Explanation: Rate for 3 yrs on total 15,000: 15000*r*3/100 = 3600 r = 8% By method of allegation: 9.5                   5
.            8
3                       1.5
2 : 1
