Q:

A) Rs.6000 | B) Rs.4500 |

C) Rs.7500 | D) Rs.5000 |

Answer: D) Rs.5000

Explanation:

Explanation:

Let a, b and c be the amounts invested in schemes X, Y and Z respectively. Then,

As we know:

Simple interest (S.I.) = PTR/100

(a × 10 × 1/100) + (b × 12 × 1/100) + (c × 15 × 1/100) = 3200

= 10a + 12b + 15c = 320000 .........(1)

Now, c = 240% of b = 12b/5 .........(2)

And, c = 150% of a = 3a/2 => a = 2/3 c = (2 × 12)b/(3 × 5) = 8b/5 .......(3)

From (1), (2) and (3), we have

16b + 12b + 36b = 320000 => 64b = 320000 => b = 5000

∴ Sum invested in Scheme Y = Rs.5000.
