If the simple interest on a sum of money for 2 years at 5% per annum is Rs. 50, what is the compound interest on the same at the same rate and for the same time?
ARs. 51.25
BRs. 54.25
CRs. 60
DRs. 52
Answer: Option A
Explanation:Sum = Rs. (50 * 100)/(5*2) = Rs. 500.
Amount = Rs. [500 * (1 + 5/100)2]
= Rs. (500 * 21/20 * 21/20 )
= Rs. 551.25
C.I. = Rs. (551.25 - 500) = Rs. 51.25

What is the difference between the compound interests on Rs. 5000 for 1 1/2 years at 4% per annum compounded yearly and half-yearly?
ARs. 2.04
BRs. 3.06
CRs. 4.80
DRs. 8.30
EData inadequate
Answer: Option A
Explanation:C.I. when interest
compounded yearly=rs.[5000*(1 4/100)(1 1/2*4/100)]
= Rs. 5304.
C.I. when interest is
compounded half-yearly=rs.5000(1 2/100)^3
= Rs. 5306.04
Difference = Rs. (5306.04 - 5304) = Rs. 2.04

A sum of money amounts to Rs.6690 after 3 years and to Rs.10035 after 6 years on compound interest. Find the sum.
ARs.4400
BRs.4560
CRs.4600
DRs.4460
Answer: Option D
Explanation:Let's assume the Sum = Rs. P.
P [1 + (R/100)]^3 = 6690 -------- (i)
P [1 + (R/100)]^6 = 10035 ----------(ii)
On dividing, we get [1 + (R/100)]^3 = 10035/6690 = 3/2.
P * (3/2) = 6690 or P = 4460.
Hence, the sum is Rs. 4460.

A sum of money doubles itself at C.I. in 15 years. In how many years will it become eight times?
A40 years.
B35 years.
C55 years.
D45 years.
Answer: Option D
Explanation:P [1 + (R/100)]^15 = 2P => [1 + (R/100)]^15 = 2 ----------- (i)
Let P [1 + (R/100)]^n = 8P => P [1 + (R/100)]^n = 8 = 2^3
= [{1 + (R/100)}^15]^3.
=> [1 + (R/100)]^n = [1 + (R/100)]^45.
=> n = 45.
So, the required time = 45 years.

The principal that amounts to Rs. 4913 in 3 years at 6 1/4 % per annum C.I. compounded annually, is?
ARs. 3406
BRs. 4096
CRs. 3096
DRs. 4085
Answer: Option B
Explanation:Formula: P = Amount / (1 + R/100)^n
Principal = [4913 / (1 + 25/(4 * 100))3]
=> 4913 * 16/17 * 16/17 * 16/17 = Rs. 4096

Anil invests an amount for 2 years at the rate of 15% per annum at simple interest.Had he invested in a scheme in which interest was compounded yearly he would have got Rs.450 more. Find the principal:
ARs.8,000
BRs.15,000
CRs.20,000
DRs.10,000
Answer: Option C
Explanation:Lets assume D amount difference between compound and simple interest for 2 years, D=P*(R/100)^2
where P is the principal
R is rate of interest
so here,
450 = P*(15/100)^2 => P= Rs. 20000

If the compound interest (compounded Yearly) on a certain sum for 2 years at 3% is Rs.101.50 then what will be the corresponding simple interest?
ARs.98.25
BRs.100.00
CRs.90.00
DRs.95.50
Answer: Option B
Explanation:Given, years = 2
3% of 50= (50*(3/100))=Rs.1.5
Simple Interest =50+50=100
Compound Interest=50+50+1.5=101.5

If the compound interest on a sum of Rs.5000 at the rate of 10% per annum is Rs.1050, then time period is (Interest compounded yearly):
A1 Years
B21/2 Years
C3 Years
D2 Years
Answer: Option D
Explanation:C.I of 5000 at 10% interest for x years is 6050 = Rs. 1050
6050 = 5000 ( 1 + 10/100)^n => 6050/5000 = (11/10)^n
=> 605/500 = (11/10)^n => n = 2 years.

At what rate of interest (compounded yearly)will Rs. 10,000 amount to Rs. 12,100 in 2 years?
A9%
B11%
C8%
D10%
Answer: Option D
Explanation:Amount = P(1 + R/100)^n
Where Principal = P, Rate = R% per annum, Time = n years.
12100 = 10000 (1+R/100)^2
=> 121/100 = (1+R/100)^2
=> 11/10 = (1+R/100)=> 11/10 = (100 + R)/100
=> 110 = 100 + R => R = 10%
