QUESTION: 1

### Out of Rs. 60,000 that Rahul has, he lends Rs. 10,000 at 11/2 % per annum simple interest and Rs. 32,000 at 6% per annum simple interest. He lends the remaining money at a certain rate of interest so that he gets total annual interest of Rs. 4000. The rate of interest per annum, at which the remaining money is lent, is?

Solution:

Answer –D.8.5% Explanation : Total Amount = 60000 Amount divided into three parts – x, y, z x = 10000, T = 1 yr SI(x) = (10000 * 11/2)/100 = 550 y = 32000 R = 6% SI(y) = (32000 * 6)/100 = 1920 Total Interest = 4000, Interest on the remaining amount = 4000 – 550 – 1920 = 1530
z = 60000 – 32000 – 10000 = 18000 R = (1530 * 100) /18000 = 8.5%

QUESTION: 2

### Vivek invests Rs 15000 as fixed deposit at a bank at the rate of 10% per annum SI. But due to some pressing needs he has to withdraw the entire money after 5 years, for which the bank allowed him a lower rate of interest. If he gets Rs 8250 less than what he would have got at the end of 10 years, the rate of interest allowed by the bank is

Solution:

Answer –C.9% Explanation : P=15000, T1=10 years, T2=5 years, R1=10%, R2=? [(15000*10*10)/100 – (15000*R2*5)/100] = 8250
15000 – 750R2 = 8250
R2 = 9%

QUESTION: 3

### A father left a will of Rs.55 lakhs between his two sons aged 8.5 and 16 such that they may get equal amounts when each of them reach the age of 21 years. The original amount of Rs.55 lakhs has been instructed to be invested at 10% p.a. SI. How much did the elder son get at the time of the will?

Solution:

Answer –D.33 lakh Explanation : Let x be the amount of elder son at the time of will & Younger son’s amount at the time of will (550000 -x) For elder son, T= 21-16=5 For younger son, T=21-8.5= 12.5 Amount Should be equal so, x + [(x*10*5)/100] = (5500000-x) + [((5500000-x)*10*12.5)/100] 3x/2 = 12375000 – 2.25x x=3300000

Answer –D.8.5% Explanation : Let x be the rate of interest 8000*3x/100 + 15000*5x/100 = 8415 240x + 750x = 8415 X = 8.5

QUESTION: 5

A portion of Rs.8500 is invested at a8% per annum, while the remainder is invested at a 3% per annum. If the annual income from the portion earning a 8% per annum is thrice that of the other portion, what is the total income from the two investments after one year?

Solution:

Answer –D.Rs.480 Explanation : 8x + 3y = z (Total Income) x + y = 8500 -(1) 8x= 3(3y) 8x – 9y = 0 -(2) By solving (1) and (2) we get, x = 4500 so y = 4000 (4500*8*1)/100 + (4000*3*1)/100 = 360 + 120 = 480

QUESTION: 6

QUESTION: 18

Mayank invested a certain sum of money in a simple interest bond, that value grew to Rs. 300 at the end of 3 year and to Rs. 400 at the end of another 5 year.Then what was the rate of interest in which he invested his sum?

Solution:

Explanation: P*R*3/100 + P = 300 –(i) P*R*8/100 + P = 400 –(ii) From (i) and (ii) P*R*5/100 = 100
P*R = 2000—(iii) Sub (iii) in (i) 6000/100 + P = 300
P = 240
240*R = 2000 => R = 8.33%
