Question 2 Explanation: 
Let the principal be Rs. y
(y X 0.4 X 0.3)+ (y X 0.8 X 0.2)+( y X 0.9 X 0.2)= 19550
= 0.12y + 0.16y + 0.18y = 19550
= 46y = 19550 × 100
=y = Rs. 42,500.
Question 3

Rs.8, 500/-
B
Rs.15, 000/-
C
Rs.7, 500/-
D
Rs.17, 000/-
Question 3 Explanation: 
Let the principal invested be Rs. 2x.
Therefore, 0.10x+0.12x =1650
=> 0.22x =1650
x = 1650/0.22 = Rs. 7500
Question 4

A
Rs.1020.8
B
Rs.1025
C
Rs.1052
D

Question 4 Explanation: 
The S.I in 3 years is = Rs. 956-800 = Rs. 156.
S.I in 1 year is = Rs. 156/3 = Rs. 52.
Rate = (52/800) x 100 =6.5%
Increased amount = 6.5+4 =10.5 %
New amount is Rs. 800 (1+0.315) = 800 x 1.315 =Rs. 1052.
