Q1. The simple interest on Rs. 500 at 6% per annum from May 3rd to July 15th in the same year is

  •  Rs. 9
  •  Rs. 6
  •  Rs. 4
  •  None of these
Solution
Time from May 3rd to July 15th
= 28 days of May + 30 days of June and 15 days of July
= 73 days = 1/5 years

I = = Rs.6

Q2.A sum of money at simple interest comes four times in 24 years. The rate Percent of interest per annum is
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  None of these
Solution
b): We have, n = 4 and T = 24 years
Rate of interest
=

Q3.What should be the least number of years in which the simple interest on Rs 2600 at % will be exact number of rupees?
  •  2
  •  3
  •  4
  •  5
Solution
(b): SI =

T has to be a multiple of 3

Q4. A sum of money doubles itself at CI in 15 year. In how many years will it become eight times?

  •  45
  •  50
  •  55
  •  60
Solution
(a): A = 2P = P (1 + r)15 r = 21/15 - 1
A = 8P = P(1 + 215 - 1)t 8 = 23 = 21/15

T = 45

Q5.A certain sum amounts to Rs. 7300 in 2 years & to Rs. 8575 in 3 years compounded annually. Find the sum
  •  Rs. 5400 
  •  Rs. 5290
  •  Rs. 5600
  •  Rs. 5600
Solution
 A = P (1 + r)t; 7300 = P (1 + r)2

8575 = P (I + r)3
P = 7300 = = 5290
Q6. The amount of Rs 7500 at compound interest at 4% per annum for 2 years is.


  •  Rs. 7800
  •  Rs. 8100
  • Rs. 8112 
  •  Rs. 8082
Solution
(c): A = 7500 (1 + .04)2 = 7500 x 1.0816 = 8112

Q7. 27. If the SI on a sum of money at 5% per annum for 3 years is Rs. 1200, the CI on the same sum for the same period & rate is?
  •  Rs. 1260 
  •  Rs. 1261
  •  Rs. 1264
  •  Rs. 1265 
Solution
(b): SI = 1200 = P = 8000
A = 8000(1.05)3 = (8000) = 9261

CI = 9261 – 8000 = 1261

Q8. The difference between the CI & SI on a sum of money for 2 years at per year is Rs 150. The sum is


  •  Rs. 9000 
  •  Rs. 9200
  •  Rs. 9500 
  •  Rs. 9600
Solution
d): SI & Cl for 1st yr
150 = ; SI = 600
P = 9600

Q9. If the difference between CI, compounded half early & the SI on a sum at 10% per annum for one year is Rs 25. The sum is.


  •  Rs. 9000
  •  Rs. 9500
  •  Rs.10000
  •  Rs. 10500
Solution
(c): Interest for half year = 5%
= 10,000

Q10. If the CI on a certain sum at % for 3 years is Rs 1270, the SI on the same sum at the same rate & for the same period is


  • Rs. 1200
  • Rs. 1165
  • Rs. 1080
