Rs 371.2
Rs 485.2
Rs 365.2
Rs 454.5

```Answer

Answer: Option  A Explanation:Interest on Rs 240 in 2 yrs = 259.2 – 240 = 19.2
So interest on Rs 320 = 19.2*(320/240)*(4/2) = 51.2
So amount = 320+51.2  ```

If the total interest accrued in one year was Rs. 3200 and the amount invested in Scheme C was 150% of the amount invested in Scheme A and 240% of the amount invested in Scheme B, what was the amount invested in Scheme B?

Rs 10000
Rs 8000
Rs 6500
Rs 5000

```Answer

Answer: Option  D Explanation:Explanation:-Let x, y and z be the amounts invested in schemes A, B and C respectively. Then,
add individual interest to get total using Si= pxrxt/100
[x x 10 x 1]/100 + [y x 12 x 1]/100 + [z x 15 x 1]/100 = 3200
10x + 12y + 15z = 320000…. (i)Now, z = 240% of y =(12/5)y……… (ii)And, z = 150% of x =(3/2)x so,x=(2/3 )z = (2/3) x value of z from ii
x= (2/3) x (12/5) y = (8/5)y………..(iii)
From (i), (ii) and (iii), we have :
16y + 12y + 36y = 320000
64y = 320000
y = 5000
Sum invested in Scheme B = Rs. 5000 ```
