1. Cost of a Mobile Rs.8000. Sudha bought Mobile in EMI. She paid a Down payment of Rs. 2000 and paid rest in 6 equal installments of Rs.1020 for next 6 months. Then what is the SI rate charged?
1. 6.5%
2. 6.95%
3. 10.5%
4. 12.5%
5. None
Explanation :
Balance to be paid in installments = 8000-2000 = 6000
(6000+6000*r*3/12*100) = 1020*6+1020r/12*100(1+2+3+4+5)
r = 6.95%

2. Ajay lent Rs.8800 to be divided between his two sons aged 11 years and 13 years such that both of them would get an equal amount when lent at the rate of 10% SI when they attain 18 years of age. What is the share of elder in Rs.8800?
1. 4125
2. 4325
3. 4475
4. 4675
5. None
Explanation :
x+x*7*10/100 = (8800-x)+(8800- x)*5*10/100
x = 4125
elder = 8800-4125 = 4675

3. SBI lent Rs. 10,000 to Deepak @7% SI for 10 years. Meanwhile, the government implemented a scheme due to which interest rate reduced by 2%. By this Deepak paid Rs.16,000 in total. Then after how many years after Deepak took the loan, the government introduced the scheme?
1. 3 Years
2. 4 Years
3. 5 years
4. 6 years
5. Cannot be determined
Explanation :
6000 = 10000(7*x+5*(10-x))/100
x = 5

4. What amount would Rs.2560 fetch if it is lent at 8% SI for 15 years?
1. Rs.3072
2. Rs.4632
3. Rs.5072
4. Rs.5632
5. None
Explanation :
SI = 2560*8*15/100
3072
Amount = 2560+3072 = 5632

5. Veena has to pay Rs. 2460 to Sita, 5 Months later at 6% SI per annum, and Gita has to pay Sita same amount at 7.5% SI per annum after certain months. If both took the same amount of loan from Sita then Gita paid loan after how many months?
1. 3 Months
2. 4 Months
3. 6 Months
4. 12 Months
5. Cannot be determined
Explanation :
2460= p+p*6*5/12*100
p = 2400
Now Gita
2460 = 2400+2400*7.5*x/12*100
x = 4

6. Amit lent a part of Rs. 15900 to Raju at 6% SI. Rest to Anil at 5% SI. After 4 years he got an amount of Rs 19376 in total. Then what is the amount paid by Anil in total?
1.Rs. 9176
2.Rs. 9847
3.Rs. 10200
4.Rs. 11200
5.None
3476 = x*6*4/100 + (15900-x)*5*4/100
x =7400
Anil = 8500+8500*4*5/100 = 10200

7. A man invests Rs. 124000 for 9 years at 5% SI. Income tax at the rate of 19% is deducted from interest earned at the end of every year. Find the amount at the end of the 9th year?

2.RS. 169918
3.Rs. 196918
4.Rs. 199698
5.None
Explanation :
for one year = 124000*5/100 = 6200
income tax = 6200*81/100 = 5022
for 9 years = 45198
Amount = 124000+45198 = 169198

8. Nitin invested an amount of Rs. 24000 at the 4% SI per annum, and another amount at 10% SI per annum. The total interest earned at the end of one year will be same as interest earned when the total amount invested at 6% SI per annum. Find the total amount invested?
1.Rs.12000
2.Rs.24000
3.Rs.30000
4.Rs.36000
5.None
Explanation :
24000*4/100 = 960
x*10/100 = 0.1x
960+0.1x = (24000+x)*6/100
x =12000
Total = 24,000+12,000 = 36,000

9. A sum of money becomes Rs.1815 at 7% SI after 3 years. Same sum of money becomes Rs. 2235 at same interest after 7 years.

2.Rs.1500
3.Rs.1800
4.Rs.2000

2235-1815 = p/100(7*7-7*3)
p = 1500
