Rs.1000 is invested at 5 % p.a simple interest if the interest is added to the principle after every 10 years. The amount will become Rs. 2000 After

A.

15 years

B.

16 2/3 years

C.

18 years

D.

20 Years

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

S. I for 10 Years = Rs (1000 × 5/100 × 10) = Rs 500

Principle after 10 Years becomes = Rs (1000 + 500)

= Rs 1500

S. I on it = Rs (2000 – 1500) = Rs 500

Time = (50000/7500) Years = 6 2/3 Years

Total Time = (10 + 6 2/3) Years = 16 2/3 Years

A borrows Rs.800 at the rate of 12 % per annum. Simple interest and B borrows Rs.910 at the rate of 10 % per annum simple interest. In how many years will their amounts at debts be equal?

A.

18 years

B.

Let the required time be x years.

Then 800 + 800 x 12/100 × x = 910 + 910 x 10/100 × x

=> (96x -91 x) = 110

=> 5x =110

=> x =22

Sum = Rs.x.

S.I = Rs. 600

Time = 10 years

Rate =

= (6000/x)% per annum.

S.I on Rs. X for 1^{st} five years

= Rs. (x X 6000/x X 5 X 1/100) = Rs. 900

Total interest = Rs. (300+900) = Rs. 1200

A.

Rs. 5000

B.

Rs. 6500

C.

Rs. 8000

D.

Cannot be determined

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option AExplanation

Let x, y and z be the amount invested in schemes A, B and C respectively. Then,

(x * 10 * 1)/100 + (y * 12 * 1)/100 + (z * 15 * 1)/100 = 3200

10x + 12y + 15z = 320000

Now, z = 240% of y = 12/5 y

And, z = 150% of x = 3/2 x

x = 2/3 z = ( 2/3 * 12/5) y = 8/5 y

16y + 12y + 36y = 320000

y = 5000

Sum invested in scheme B = Rs. 5000.

The difference between the simple interest received from two different sources on Rs. 1500 for 3 years is Rs. 13.50. The difference between their rates of interest is?

A.

0.1%

B.

0.2%

C.

0.3%

D.

0.4%

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

(1500 * R_{1} * 3)/100 – (1500 * R_{2} * 3)/100 = 13.50 4500(R_{1} – R_{2}) = 1350

R_{1} – R_{2} = 0.3%

A lends Rs. 2500 to B and a certain to C at the same time at 7% p.a. simple interest. If after 4 years, A altogether receives Rs. 1120 as interest from B and C, then the sum lent to C is?

A.

Rs. 700

B.

Rs. 1500

C.

Rs. 4000

D.

Rs. 6500

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

Let the sum lent to C be Rs. x. Then,

(2500 * 7 * 4) / 100 + (x * 7 * 4) / 100 = 1120

7/25 x = (1120 – 700) => x = 1500

A sum of money lent out at S.I. amounts to Rs. 720 after 2 years and to Rs. 1020 after a further period of 5 years. The sum is?

A.

Rs. 500

B.

Rs. 600

C.

Rs. 700

D.

Rs. 710

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

S.I for 5 years = (1020 – 720) = Rs. 300.

S.I. for 2 years = 300/5 * 2 = Rs. 120.

Principal = (720 – 120) = Rs. 600.

Rs. 800 becomes Rs. 956 in 3 years at a rate of S.I. If the rate of interest is increased by 4%, what amount will Rs. 800 become in 3 years?

A.

Rs. 1020.80

B.

Rs. 1025

C.

Rs. 1052

D.

Rs. 1052

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

S.I. = (956 – 800) = Rs. 156.

Rate = (100 * 156) / (800 * 3) = 6 1/2 %

Now rate = (6 1/2 + 4) = 10 1/2 %

New S.I. = (800 * 21/2 * 3/100) = Rs. 252

New amount = (800 + 252) = Rs. 1052.
