 Question 1
What total amount would Mithilesh get at the end of three years if he invests an amount of Rs.11, 200 in a scheme which offers simple interest at the rate of 8.5 p. c. p. a. for three years?
 A Rs.14, 056 B Rs.14, 348 C Rs.13, 852 D Rs.15, 064
Question 1 Explanation:
Principal = Rs. 11,200.
Amount = Rs. 11,200 X (1+.085 X 3) = Rs. 14056.
Correct option is (a)
 Question 2
Ravi borrowed some money at the rate of 4 p.c.p.a. for the first three years, at the rate of 8 p.c.p.a. for the next two years and at the rate of 9 p.c.p.a. for the period beyond 5 years. If he pays a total simple interest of Rs.19, 550 at the end of 7 years, how much money did he borrow?
 A Rs.39, 500 B Rs.42, 500 C Rs.41, 900 D Rs.43, 000
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
Srinivasan invests two equal amounts in two banks giving 10% and 12% rate of interest respectively. At the end of year the interest earned is Rs.1650/-. Find the sum invested in each.
 A 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
Rs.800 becomes Rs.956 in 3 years at certain simple rate of interest. If the rate of interest is increased by 4%, what amount will Rs.800 become in 3 years?
 A Rs.1020.8 B Rs.1025 C Rs.1052 D Data inadequate
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.
 Question 5
