B.10
C.12
D.Cannot be determined
E.None of these

Answers:

1. (c)
Amount = Rs. [200 X (1+ 5/100)^3 + 200(1 +( 5/100))^2  + 200(1 + 5/100)
= Rs. [200 X (21/20) X (21/20) X (21/20)  +200 X (21/20) X (21/20) + 200 X 21/20 ].
= Rs. [200 X (21/20)[(21/20) X (21/20)  + (21/20) +1]
= Rs. 662.02

2.C
Principal= Rs.16,000;
Time=9 months = 3 quarters;
Rate = 20%, it will be 20/4 = 5%
So lets solve this question now
Amount=16000(1+5/100)^3=18522
C.I=18522-16000=2522

3.D
Let Rate will be R
1200(1+R/100)^2=134832/100
(1+R/100)^2=134832/120000
(1+R/100)^2=11236/10000
(1+R/100)=106/100
R=6%

4.A
As per question we need something like following
P(1+R/100)^^n>2P
(1+20/100)^n>2
(6/5)^n>2
6/5�6/5�6/5�6/5>2
So answer is 4 years

5.B
C.I.=(4000�(1+10/100)^2-4000)
=4000*11/10*11/10-4000=840
So S.I. = 840/2=420
So Sum = (S.I.*100)/(R*T)
=(420*100)/(3*8)
=Rs1750

6.C
S.I.=(1000*10*4)/100=400
C.I.=[1000(1+10/100)^4-1000]=464.10
So difference between simple interest and compound interest will be
464.10 – 400 = 64.10

7.B

8.D
Difference in CI and SI for 2 years=Rs(696.30-660)=Rs 36.30
SI for one year = Rs 330.
therefore SI on Rs 330 for 1 year = Rs 36.30
therefore,Rate= (100*36.30/330*1)% = 11%

9.A

10.A
C.I.-S.I.=P(R/100)*(R/100)
96=15000(R/100)(R/100)
R*R=960/15=64
R=8
