1.(c)
Principal, P = Rs. 1600
T = 2 year 3 months
= (2+3/12)yrs.=(2+1/4)yrs.= 9/4 yrs.
S.I = Rs. 252
R = % rate of interest per annum
R= (100×S.I.)/(P×t)
=(100×252)/(1600×9/4)
Rate of interest = 7% per annum.

2.(a)
Let first part = Rs. x and second part = Rs. (1750-x)
According to the question.
x×8/100=(1750-x)×6/100
8x + 6x = 1750 x 6
14x = 1750 x 6
x=(1750×6)/10=Rs.750
Interest = 8% of Rs. 750
= 750 × 8/100=Rs,750
= 750 × 8/100=Rs.60

3.(c)
Simple interest gained from Rs. 500
= (500×12×4)/100 = Rs. 240
Let the other Principal be Rs. x.
S.I. gained = Rs. (480 -240) = Rs. 240
(x×10×4)/100=240
x=(540×100)/40 = Rs. 600

4.(b)
Principal + SI for 2 years = Rs. 720 …..(i)
Principal + SI for 7 years = Rs. 1020 ….(ii)
Subtracting equation (i) from (ii) we get,
SI for 5 years
= Rs. (1020 -720) = Rs. 300
SI for 2 years = Rs. 300× 2/5= Rs. 120
Principal = Rs. 720- Rs. 120 = 600

5.(a)
Interest = Rs. (81-72) = Rs. 9
Let the time be t years.
9 = (72×25×t)/(4×100)
t=(9×400)/(72×25)=2 years

6.(d)
Let the sum be Rs. x
(x ×5 ×15)/(100 ×12)-(x ×4 ×8)/(100 ×12)=129
x/(100×12) (75-32)=129
x=(129×1200)/43= Rs. 3600

7.(a)
Let the rate of interest be R per cent per annum.
(400×2×R)/100+(550×4×R)/100+(1200×6×R)/100=1020
8R + 22R + 72R = 1020
102 R =1020
R = 1020/102=10%

8.(a)
Principal = P
Amount = 7p/6
S.I. = 7p/6-P=P/6
? R=(S.I×100)/(P×T)=(P×100)/(6×p×3)
= 50/9=5 5/9%

9.(a)

10.(a)
Rate = (SI ×100)/(Principal ×Time)
= 9/25×100/6=6% per annum
