Below table shows the simple interest rates offered by five different banks for the years 2011 to 2015. And Pie charts show the investments by five different persons at the beginning of the year of 2011. Raju, Ravi, Ramu, Rita, Ritu invested in SBI, IDBI, ICICI, HDFC & UCO Bank respectively. 1. If the Sum of the total interest earned by Ramu & Rita is Rs 29260.Then what is Ramu’s investment at the beginning of the year 2011?
A. 34,000
B. 38,000
C. 42,000
D. 56,000
E. Cannot be determined
Solution:
Sum of Ramu + Rita is 72,000
Interest rate of Ramu = Ramu’s Sum* (7+6+8+9+8)/100
Interest rate of Rita = Rita’s sum * (10+9+6+8+10)/100
Solving above equations we get Ramu’s sum is 34,000.

2. If the difference between the total Interest rates earned by Ramu & Rita is Rs 3420 then at the end of the year 2015 how much amount can Rita withdraw from her bank?
A. 34340
B. 38340
C. 46340
D. 54340
E. Cannot be determined
Solution:
Difference of interest is Rita’s sum * (10+9+6+8+10)/100 – Ramu’s Sum* (7+6+8+9+8)/100 = 3420
Sum of Ramu & Rita is 72,000
Solving we get Rita investment is 38000
Interest by end of 2015 38,000 + 38,000*(10+9+6+8+10)/100 = 54340

37 x 8 + 1 = 297

3. 11, ? ,7, 12, 26
A. 5
B. 6
C. 7
D. 8
