A) 10% B) 10.25%
C) 10.5% D) none of these

Answer:   B) 10.25%



Explanation:

Let the sum be Rs. 100. Then,

S.I. for first 6 months = Rs.[ (100 x 10 x 1)/(100 x 2) ]= Rs.5

S.I. for last 6 months =Rs.[(102 x 10 x 1)/(100 x 2) ] = Rs.5.25

So, amount at the end of 1 year = Rs. (100 + 5 + 5.25) = Rs. 110.25

Effective rate = (110.25 - 100) = 10.25%
