b) Rs.14, 250

c) Rs.11, 750

d) Rs. 9,500

e) None of these

d) Rs. 9,500
difference = Rs. [(10% of 4.75) – (8% of 4.75)] = Rs. (2% of 4.75) lakhs
= Rs. 0.095 lakhs
= Rs. 9500.

2) If two different amounts in the ratio 8:9 are invested in Companies P and Q respectively in 2002, then the amounts received after one year as interests from Companies P and Q are respectively in the ratio?

a) 2:3

b) 3:4

c) 6:7

d) 4:3

e) None of these

d) 4:3
Let the amounts invested in 2002 in Companies P and Q be Rs. 8x and Rs. 9xrespectively.
Then, interest received after one year from Company P= Rs. (6% of 8x)=Rs.48x/100
and interest received after one year from Company Q= Rs. (4% of 9x)=Rs.36x/100
Required ratio =(48x/100)/(36x/100)=4/3

3) In 2000, a part of Rs. 30 lakhs was invested in Company P and the rest was invested in Company Q for one year. The total interest received was Rs. 2.43 lakhs. What was the amount invested in Company P?

= Rs. 2.7 -1.5x/100 lakhs.
x = 18.

e) None of these

c) 2, 25,600
Amount received from Company P after one year (i.e., in 1999) on investing Rs. 12 lakhs in it
= Rs. [12 + (8% of 12)] lakhs
= Rs. 12.96 lakhs.

e) None of these

b) 5, 80,425

= Rs. [5 + (6.5% of 5)] lakhs
= Rs. 5.325 lakhs.
Amount received from Company P after one year on investment of Rs. 5.325 lakhs in theyear 1997
= Rs. [5.325 + (9% of 5.325)] lakhs
= Rs. 5.80425 lakhs
= Rs. 5, 80, 425.
