(1) Rs. 7600
(2) Rs. 7625

Answers and Solution:

1.(c)
(Pr*3)/100 +P = 300…….(1)
(Pr*8)/100 +P = 400…….(2)
subtract (1) from (2)
p*r = 2000 ………..(3)
put (3) in (1)
p = 240, then r = 8.33%

2.(c)
3.(c)
Use, SI = PRT/100 = (153000*20)/100*1/12 = Rs. 2550

4.(b)
SI per year = (540-450)/4 = 22.5
so after 6 year = 22.5 x 6 = 135
So Amount 450+135 = Rs.585

5.(d)
6.(b)
Population 2 year ago = 125000 = p
for two years,rate of decrease = 4% p.a.
population after 2 year = present population = p(1-R/100)^2
Present population = 125000(1-4/100)^2
= 115200
So number of persons migrated during last 2 years= 125000-115200 = 9800

7.(d)
8.(c)
9.(a)
Difference of CI and SI for 3 years = pr^2(300+r)/(100)^3
325 = (p*25*305)/1000000
so p = 42623

10.(3)
Difference of CI and SI for 2 years = pr^2/(100)^2
12 = (p*16)/10000
so p = 7500
