Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

We will not count the day when the money is deposited we will only count the day when the money is withdrawn.

Now we will calculate the number of days:

Time = (24+31+18) days = 73/365 years = 1/5 years

P = 3000

R = 25/4%

Simple Interest =(3000×25)/(4×5×100)=37.50

Rs.1678

B.

Rs.1640

C.

Rs.1650

D.

Rs.1630

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

let x is the first part of amount

(x*8*3)/100 = ((2665 – x)*3*5)/100

24x/100 = 39975/100 – 15x/100

39x = 39975

x = 1025

Second sum = 2665 – 1025 = 1640
