Q 1 - A man puts cash in three unique plans for a long time, 10 years and 12years at 10%, 12% and 15% simple premium, separately. At the completion of every plan he gets the same interest. The proportion of his speculations is:

A - 2:3:4

B - 3:4:2

C - 3:4:6

D - 6:3:2

### Explanation

```Let the required ratio be x: 1: y. Then,
S.I on Rs. x for 6 years at 10 % p.a. = S.I on Re 1 for 10 years at 12%p.a.
X*10/100*6 = 1*12/100*10 => x= 120/60= 2
S.I. on Rs.1 for 10 years at 12% p.a. = S.I. on Rs. y for 12 years at 15% p.a.
∴ (1*12/100*10) = (y* 15/100*12) => y = 120/180= 2/3
Required ratio = 2:1:2/3 = 6:3:2```

Q 2 - The total of cash that will give Re 1 as basic premium for each at the rate of 5% for every annum is:

A - Rs 730

B - Rs 3650

C - Rs 7300

D - Rs 36500

### Explanation

```Annual interest = Rs. 365, Rate = 5% p.a.
Sum = (100*S.I/R*T) = Rs. (100*365/5*1) = Rs. 7300.```

Q 3 - The simple interest at x% p.a. for x years will be Rs x on an aggregate of:

A - Rs x

B - Rs 100x

C - Rs (100/x)

D - Rs (101/x)

### Explanation

```Let the sum be Rs. P. then,
P = 100*S.I /Rate * time = (100*x/x*x) = Rs. 100/x```

Q 4 - An aggregate of Rs 5000 was loaned mostly at 6% and incompletely at 9% basic interest. On the off chance that the aggregate yearly premium be Rs 390, the proportion in which the cash was loaned at given rates is:

A - 1:1

B - 1:2

C - 2:3

D - 3:2

### Explanation

```Let the money invested at the two rates be rs. x and Rs. (5000-x)
Then, (x*6/100*1) + (5000-x) *9/100*1 = 390
=> 3x/50 + 9(5000-x)/100 = 390
=> 6x+45000-9x = 39000 => 3x= 6000 => x= 2000.
Required ratio = 2000:3000= 2:3```

Q 5 - Anand took some advance at 12% P.a. simple interest and paid back Rs. 17584 toward the end of 3 years 4 months. What amount of cash did he acquire?

A - 13650 Rs.

B - 14540 Rs.

C - 12560 Rs.

D - 15650 Rs.

### Explanation

```Let the money borrowed be Rs. x. Then,
x+x* 12/100* 10/3 = 17584 => (x+2x/5) = 17584
=> 7x/5 = 17584   => x= (17584*5/7) = 12560.
Hence, the money borrowed is Rs. 12560.```

Q 6 - A sum of Rs 1500 is lent out in two parts in such a way that the simple interest on one part at 10% per annum for 5 years is equal to that on another pert at 12.5% per annum for 4 years. The sum lent out at 12.5% is:

A - Rs 500

B - Rs 1000

C - Rs 750

D - Rs 1250

### Explanation

```Let the sum lent out at 12.5% be x
Sum lent out at 10% = 1500 - x

Now, (1500-x)*10*5/100 = x * 12.5*4/100
Or, 50(1500-x) = 50x
Or, 2x = 1500
Or, x = 750```

Q 7 - A sum of money amounts to RS. 9800 after 5 years and to 12005 after a further period of 8 years at the same rate of simple interest. The rate of interest per annum is?

A - 12%

B - 13

C - 12.5%

D - 14%

### Explanation

```S.I. for 3 year = Rs. (12005 - 9800) = 2205
S.I. for 5 years = Rs. (2205 x 5⁄3) = 3675
Therefore Principal = (9800 - 3675) = 6125
Hence, Rate = (100 x 3675⁄6125 x 5) = 12%
```

Q 8 - A money lender finds that due to fall in the annual rate of interest from 8% to 734%, his yearly income diminishes by Rs. 61.50. His capital is?

A - 24600

B - 20000

C - 26000

D - 25000

### Explanation

```Let the capital be Rs z then, z x 8 x 1⁄100 - z x 31 x⁄41⁄100 = 61.50
32z - 31z = 6150 x 4
z = 24600
```

Q 9 - S.I On Rs. 5600 at 20/3% P.A for 9 month?

A - Rs. 280

B - Rs. 380

C - Rs. 480

D - Rs. 580

```Here P = 5600 Rs.R= 20/3% p.a. also, T = 9/12 = 3/4 year
