Hence CI = 27720 20000 = Rs 7720, 3 d 1 + r/100 = 1+ 5/100 = 21/20 Amount = 16000 X 21/20 X 21/20 X 21/20 = 18522 CI = 18522 16000 = Rs 2522 4 a Let the principal be Rs 100 Amount = 100 X (11/10)2 = 121. Hence CI = 21. If principal is 100, CI is 21. If principal is 693, CI = 693 X 100/21 = Rs 3300 5 a Let principal be Rs 100. Amount after 1st year = Rs 110. Amount after 2nd year = 100 X (11/10)2 = 121. Hence CI for 2nd year = 11. If CI for 2nd year is Rs 11, principal =100. If CI for 2nd year is Rs 2860, principal = 2860 X 100/11 = Rs 26,000, option a MODERATE SIMPLE SIMPLE

In 3 years the amount doubles to Rs 8000. In the next 3 years, MODERATE the amount doubles to 8000 X 2 = Rs 16,000. Hence, after 9 years the amount will be Rs 16,000 optiona

CI for succeeding year = 100 +r% times of CI of previous year. = 2000 (100 + 10%) = 2000 X 11/10 = Rs 2,200

Let the amount be 100. Amount after 1st year = 115. Amount after 2nd year = 115 + 15% = 132.25 => hence percentage increase = 32.25 Amount/Principal = (1 + R/100)time 1331 = (11/10) 1000 Hence time = 3 years (1+ r/100)T = Amount/Principal = (1+ r/100)3 = 9261/8000 = (21/20)3 Hence, 1+ r/100 = 21/20 => r = 1/20 = 5%, option a
