  1. Find the compound interest on Rs36,000 at a rate in which Rs216 becomes Rs343 in 3years and the time is 2years?
    A) Rs12000
    B) Rs12500
    C) Rs13000
    D) Rs13500
    E) Rs14200
    View Answer
    Option C
    Solution:

    first we find the rate
    3√216 : 3√343
    6 : 7
    (+1)
    1/6*100= 16(2/3) %
    Now R = 16(2/3) %=1/6
    6…………….7
    6…………….7
    36 49
     (13) =13000
  2. If a principal becomes triple in 3years on C.I. then find in how many years it will be 27 fold?
    A) 39years
    B) 9years
    C) 18years
    D) 27years
    E) 10years
    View Answer
    Option B
    Solution:

    in C.I principal increase like
    1….3….9…..27
    …3…..3….3
    = 9years
  3. If a principal becomes amount of rs14500 at 14(2/7)% rate of interest in 3years at simple interest. Find the S.I on principal?
    A) Rs4250
    B) Rs4300
    C) Rs4400
    D) Rs4350
    E) Rs4270
    View Answer
    Option D
    Solution:
    R = 14(2/7)% = 1/7
    S.I remains same in all years so…
    (P)7 + 1+1+1= 10(A)
    10-7 = 3S.I
    10 =14500
    1=1450
    3=4350
  4. If the difference between C.I and S.I is rs256 at 20% rate of interest in 3years. Find the amount on C.I?
    A) Rs4320
    B) Rs2500
    C) Rs3456
    D) Rs3200
    E) Rs3478
    View Answer
    Option C
    Solution:

    S.I in 3years = 20*3= 60%
    C.I in 3years = 5……………6
    .                       5……………6
    .                       5………..….6
    .                    125            216
    .                            (91)
    91/125*100= 72.8
    Difference = 72.8 – 60= 12.8
    12.8%= 256
    100% = 2000
    Now P = 2000
    Means in C.I …. 125 =2000
    1 = 16
    216 = 3456
  5. A sum becomes 8000 in 3years and 10000 in 6years at C.I. Find the sum ?
    A) Rs6400
    B) Rs6500
    C) Rs6000
    D) Rs7000
    E) Rs7200
    View Answer
    Option A
    Solution:

    x : y = y : z
    x : 8000 = 8000 : 10000
    x = 6400
  6. Find the C.I on rs9000 at 15% rate of interest for 3years?
    A) Rs4645.87
    B) Rs4680.87
    C) Rs4685.87
    D) Rs4687.87
    E) Rs4356.77
    View Answer
    Option D
    Solution:

    15% of 9000 = 1350
    1350……………1350………………1350
    .                      202.5…………….202.5
    .                                               202.5
    .                                               30.37
    = 4687.87
  7. Find the compound interest on 18000 at 20% rate of interest in 1(1/2) years, if compounded half yearly ?
    A) Rs5958
    B) Rs4916
    C) Rs5780
    D) Rs3500
    E) Rs6724
    View Answer
    Option A
    Solution:

    in half yearly we make rate half and time double.
    So R =20/2 = 10%
    T = 3/2 * 2= 3years
    So 10% of 18000 = 1800
    1800………………1800………………….1800
    .                           180……………………180
    .                                                         180
    .                                                           18
    = 5400 + 540 + 18 = 5958
  8. Find the difference between S.I and C.I on Rs 5000 if rate of interest for first year is 10% and 2nd year is 15% and 3rd year is 20%?
    A) Rs300
    B) Rs320
    C) Rs330
    D) Rs340
    E) Rs360
    View Answer
    Option D
    Solution:

    S.I = 10+15+20 = 45%
    C.I ..     10…….11
    .            20……23
    .              5…….6
    .         1000…..1518
    .               (518)
    = 518/1000*100 = 51.8 %
    = difference = 51.8 – 45 = 6.8%
    = 6.8% of 5000 = 340
  9. If the principal become 6 fold on S.I in 10 years then find in how many years it will be 12 fold?
    A) 24years
    B) 22years
    C) 12years
    D) 20years
    E) 25years
    View Answer
    Option B
    Solution:

    P …………………..6P
    6P – P = 5P interest
    5P = 10years
    P = 2years
    11 P = 22years
  10. If the compound interest on a sum at 25% rate of interest is Rs900 then find the S.I of 3years at same rate?
    A) Rs1000
    B) Rs1100
    C) Rs1300
    D) Rs1200
    E) Rs1500
    View Answer
    Option D
    Solution:

    S.I = 25*3 = 75%
    C.I = 25% =1/4
    4…………..5
    4……………5
    16…………25
    25 -16 = 9
    9 = 900
    16 = 1600 = principal
    So 75% of 1600 =1200
