Q. 29. The Compound interest on a certain sum for 2 years is Rs.412 and the simple interest
is Rs.400. What is the rate of interest per annum?
(a) 3% (b) 4% (c) 6% (d) 8% (e) 5%
Ans: (c) 6%
Explanation:
In C I, the simple interest for the previous year is added to the principal and the interest for
this amount is also included in the interest of the current year.
Thus, the difference 412 -400 = Rs.12 is the interest for the first years S I at the same rate of
interest.
Here, the first years SI = 400/2 = Rs.200
Rs. 12 is the interest for Rs.200 in one year.
So, the rate of interest = SI 100/ P n
= 12 100/ 200 1 = 6% p.a. Ans.
Q. 30. A certain sum of money is put on simple interest at a certain rate for 4 years. Had it
been put at 3 % higher rate, it would have fetched Rs.360 more. What is the amount?
(a) Rs.2400 (b) Rs.3000 (c) Rs.3600 (d) Rs.4200 (e) None of these
Ans: (b) Rs.3000
Explanation:
At 3% more rate, the increase in SI for the 4 years = Rs.360
So, the increase in S I for 1 year = 360/4 = Rs.90
Rs.90 is 3% of the sum.
So,1% of the sum = 90/3
Therefore, the sum = 90 100/3 = Rs.3000. Ans.
OR
Let x be the sum and r the rate percent per annum.
Then, x (r + 3) 4/100 x r 4/100 = 360
i.e. x ( r + 3) 4 x r 4 = 360 100
4x ( r +3) 4xr = 36000 i.e. 4xr + 12x 4xr = 36000
12x = 36000 and therefore, x = 36000/12 = Rs.3000. Ans.
Q. 31. What will be the difference between the simple and the compound interest at the rate

(a) Rs.875 (b) Rs.900 (c) Rs.800.3 (d) Rs.860.5 (e) Rs.850.5
Ans: (e) Rs.850.5
Explanation:
If the Sum of money invested, the Rate percent and the Term are given and is asked to find
the difference between the C I and S I is calculated as:
Difference = Sum r (300 + r)/ (100)
Therefore, the required difference = 12000 15 (300 + 15)/ 100
= 12000 225 315/1000000
= Rs.850.5. Ans.
Q. 32. A sum was put at simple interest at a certain rate for 10 years. Had it been put at 5%
higher rate it would have fetched Rs.600 more. What was the sum?
(a) Rs. 2400 (b) Rs.2000 (c) Rs.1800 (d) Rs.1200 (e) None of these
Ans: (d) Rs.1200
Explanation:
At 5% more rate, the increase in SI for 10 years = Rs.600 (given)
So, at 5% more rate, the increase in SI for 1 year = 600/10 = Rs.60/-
i.e. Rs.60 is 5% of the invested sum
So, 1% of the invested sum = 60/5
Therefore, the invested sum = 60 100/5 = Rs.1200. Ans.
Q. 33. In what time will Rs.4200 amount to Rs.4898.88 at 16% compound interest payable
half-yearly?
(a) 1 Year (b) 2 years (c) 1.5 years (d) 2.5 years (e) 3 years
Ans: (a) 1 year
Explanation:
For CI payable at half-yearly, the Amount = P ( 1+ r/2/100)2n
i.e. 4200 ( 1+ 16/2/100)2n = 4898.88
i.e. 4200 (1 + 8/100) 2n = 4898.88
4200( 1+ 2/25)2n = 4898.88
i.e. (27/25)2n = 4898.88/4200 = 489888/420000 = 729/625 = (27/25)2 1
i.e. (27/25)2n = (27/25)2 1
therefore the time n = 1 year. Ans.

We know that, S I = p n r/100
Then, 8 4 x/100 + ( 7200 x) 12 4/100 = Rs. 2944
i.e. 32x + 345600 48x = 294400
345600 294400 = 48x -32x
51200 = 16x
Therefore, x = 51200/16 = Rs.3200. Ans.

(a) 0.25% (b) 0.5% (c) 0.75% (d) 1% (e) 1.25%
Ans: (e) 1.25%
Explanation:
Let r1 and r2 be the two rates of interest.
Then, S I = P r n/100
So, SI1 = 1500 4 r1/100 = 60r1
And S I 2 = 60r2
Given, SI1 SI2 = Rs.75
i.e. 60r1 60r2 = 75
60(r1 r2) = 75
So, r1 r2 = 75/60 =5/4 = 1.25%. Ans.
