21. In how many years, $₹150$ will produce the same simple interest at $6\%$ as $₹800$ produce in $2$ years at $4\dfrac{1}{2}\%~?$ | |

A. $9$ | B. $6$ |

C. $8$ | D. $4$ |

Discuss |

answer with explanation

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Assume, simple interest on $₹150$ at $6\%$ for $n$ years = simple interest on $₹800$ at $4\dfrac{1}{2}\%$ for $2$ years

$\dfrac{150×6×n}{100}=\dfrac{800×\dfrac{9}{2}×2}{100}\\\Rightarrow 150×6×n=800×\dfrac{9}{2}×2\\\Rightarrow n=8$

SI on $₹800$ at $\dfrac{9}{2}\%$ for $2$ years

$\equiv$ SI on $₹800$ at $6\%$ for $\left(2×\dfrac{9}{12}=\dfrac{3}{2}\right)$ years

$\equiv$ SI on $₹150$ at $6\%$ for $\left(\dfrac{3}{2}×\dfrac{800}{150}=8\right)$ years

Let required number of years be $n$

SI $\propto$ PRT

Therefore,

$150×6×n=800×\dfrac{9}{2}×2\\\Rightarrow n=8$

22. A sum of $₹2500$ amounts to $₹3875$ in $4$ years at the rate of simple interest. What is the rate of interest? | |

A. $13.75\%$ | B. $12\%$ |

C. $6\%$ | D. $12.25\%$ |

Discuss |

answer with explanation

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Simple interest $=3875-2500=1375$

$\text{R}=\dfrac{100×1375}{2500×4}=13.75$

23. What is the interest due after $40$ days for $₹3200$ at $10\%$ | |

A. $35.52$ | B. $36.21$ |

C. $35.07$ | D. $34$ |

Discuss |

answer with explanation

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Required simple interest$=\dfrac{3200×10×\dfrac{40}{365} }{100}=35.07$

24. What is the rate of interest at which $₹150$ becomes $₹220$ in $10$ years (assume simple interest)? | |

A. $\dfrac{11}{3}\%$ | B. $\dfrac{14}{3}\%$ |

C. $12\%$ | D. $14\%$ |

Discuss |

answer with explanation

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Simple interest $=220-150=70$

$\text{R}=\dfrac{100×70}{150×10}=\dfrac{14}{3}$

25. A person invested $₹2600$ by dividing into $3$ parts. The rate of interest per annum for the first part, second part and third part are $4\%,6\%$ and $8\%$ respectively. At the end of the year, he got the same simple interest in all three parts. What is the money invested at $4\%~?$ | |

A. $₹1600$ | B. $₹1200$ |

C. $₹800$ | D. $₹2200$ |

Discuss |

answer with explanation

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Let the parts be $x,y$ and $z$

simple interest on $x$ at $4\%$ for $1$ year

= simple interest on $y$ at $6\%$ for $1$ year

= simple interest on z at $8\%$ for $1$ year

$\dfrac{x×4×1}{100}=\dfrac{y×6×1}{100}=\dfrac{z×8×1}{100}\\\Rightarrow 2x=3y=4z$

$x:y=3:2=6:4\\x:z=2:1=6:3$

$x:y:z=6:4:3$

Since the total amount is $2600,$

$x=2600×\dfrac{6}{6+4+3}=1200$
