Q:

A sum is being lent at 20 % per annum compound interest.what is the ratio of increase in amount of 4th year to 5th year?

A) 4:5 B) 5:4
C) 5:6 D) can't be determined

Answer:   C) 5:6



Explanation:

\inline \frac{p\left ( 1+\frac{r}{100} \right )^4}{p\left ( 1+\frac{r}{100} \right )^5}=\frac{1}{\left ( 1+\frac{r}{100} \right )}

                    = \inline \frac{100}{100+r}=\frac{100}{120}  = \inline \frac{5}{6}

Q:

Compound interest on a certain sum of money at 20% per annum for 2 years is Rs.5995. What is the SI on the same money at 8% per annum for 6 years ?

A) Rs. 5989 B) Rs. 6540
C) Rs. 7844 D) Rs. 6789
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Rs. 6540

Explanation:

Given C.I = 5984, R = 20% , T = 2yrs

5984 =  

=> P = (5995x25)/11

P = Rs. 13625

Now S.I = PTR/100

SI = (13625 x 8 x 6)/100 = Rs. 6540

Q:

At a certain rate of interest the compound interest of 3 years and simple interest of 5 years for certain sum of money is respectively Rs. 1513.2 and Rs. 2400. Find the common rate of interest per annum ?

A) 5% B) 6%
C) 4% D) 3%
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 5%

Explanation:

Given compound interest for 3 years = Rs. 1513.2

and simple interest for 5 years = Rs. 2400

Now, we know that  C.I =  

=> 1513.2 =  ...........(A)

And S.I = PTR/100

=> 2400 = P5R/100 ..................(B)

By solving (A) & (B), we get

R = 5%.

Q:

The compound interest earned by Sunil on a certain amount at the end of two years at the rate of 8% p.a. was Rs.2828.80. Find the total amount that Sunil got back at the end of two years in the form of principal plus interest earned  ?

A) Rs. 11828.80 B) Rs. 19828.80
C) Rs. 9828.80 D) Rs. 19328.80
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Rs. 19828.80

Explanation:

Let the sum be Rs. P
P{ - 1 } = 2828.80

It is in the form of  

P(8/100)(2 + 8/100) = 2828.80

P = 2828.80 / (0.08)(2.08)

= 1360/0.08 = 17000

Principal + Interest = Rs. 19828.80

Q:

Find the C.I. on Rs. 15,225 for 9 months at 16% per annum compounded quarterly ?

A) Rs. 1911 B) Rs. 1909
C) Rs. 1901 D) Rs. 1907
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Rs. 1901

Explanation:

P = Rs. 15225, n = 9 months = 3 quarters, R = 16% p.a. per quarter.

Amount =

= (15225 x 26/25 x 26/25 x 26/25) = Rs. 17126.05

=> C.I. = 17126 - 15625 = Rs. 1901.05.
