Answers 

 

1. 

Let rate = R% and time = R years.

Then,1200 x R x R= 432
100

 12R2 = 432

 R2 = 36

 R = 6.

 

2. 

Gain in 2 years
= Rs.5000 x25x25000 x 4 x 2
4100100
 = Rs. (625 – 400)
 = Rs. 225.
 Gain in 1 year = Rs.225= Rs. 112.50
2

 

 

3. 

We need to know the S.I., principal and time to find the rate.

Since the principal is not given, so data is inadequate.

 

4. 

Let the principal be P and the rate of interest be R%.

 Required ratio =
P x R x 6
100
=6PR=6= 2 : 3.
P x R x 9
100
9PR9

 

 

5. 

Given : S.I. = Rs. 50.

I gives, R = 10% p.a.

II gives T = 10 years.

 Sum =100 x S.I.= Rs.100 x 50= Rs. 50.
T x R10 x 10

Thus, I and II together give the answer.

 The correct answer is (E)

 

 

6. 

Let the rate be R% p.a.

I gives, P = Rs. 8000 and T = 4 years.

II gives, S.I. = Rs. (8800 – 8000) = Rs. 800.

 R =100 x S.I.=100 x 800%= 21% p.a.
P x T8000 x 42

Thus, I and II both are needed to get the answer.

 The correct answer is (E)

 

7. 

Let the rate be R% p.a.

I gives, P = Rs. 8000 and T = 4 years.

II gives, S.I. = Rs. (8800 – 8000) = Rs. 800.

 R =100 x S.I.=100 x 800%= 21% p.a.
P x T8000 x 42

Thus, I and II both are needed to get the answer.

 The correct answer is (E).

 

8. 

Let the sum be Rs. x.

I gives, S.I. = Rs. 7000 and T = 7 years.

II gives, Sum + S.I. for 5 years = 2 x Sum          Sum = S.I. for 5 years.

Now, S.I. for 7 years = Rs. 7000.

 S.I. for 1 year = Rs.7000= Rs. 1000.
7

Thus, I and II both are needed to get the answer.

 The correct answer is (E).

 

9. 

We know that R =100 x S.I.
P x T

Now, I give, S.I. = Rs. 4000.

II gives T = 4 years.

But, P is unknown. So, we cannot find R.

So, given data is insufficient to get R.

 The correct answer is (D).
