```1)If the simple interest on a sum of money for 2 years at 5% per annum is Rs. 60, what is the compound interest on the same at the same rate and for the same time?

A. Rs. 63.5

B. Rs. 62

C. Rs. 61.5

D. Rs. 64

**Answer:**C. Rs. 61.5

**Explanation:**

Sum, P =

Amount after 2 years on Rs.600 at 5% per annum when interest is compounded annually
100×SI

=
100×60
5×2

=Rs. 600

```2)The difference between simple interest and compound on Rs. 900 for one year at 10% per annum reckoned half-yearly is:

A. Rs. 3

B. Rs. 2.25

C. Rs. 4.5

D. Rs. 4

**Answer:**B. Rs. 2.25

**Explanation:**

Simple Interest =

```4)The effective annual rate of interest corresponding to a nominal rate of 6% per annum payable half-yearly is:

A)6.06%

B) 6.07%

C) 6.08%

D) 6.09%

**Answer:**D) 6.09%

**Explanation:**

Amount of Rs. 100 for 1 year
when compounded half-yearly

= Rs.[100 x (1 +
^{2} ] = Rs. 106.09

Effective rate = (106.09 - 100)% = 6.09%

```5)The difference between simple interest and compound on Rs. 1200 for one year at 10% per annum reckoned half-yearly is:

A)Rs. 2.50

B)Rs. 3

C)Rs. 3.75

D) Rs. 4

**Answer:**B)Rs. 3

**Explanation:**

S.I. = Rs (

1200 x 10 x 1

= Rs. 120.
C.I. = Rs.[1200 x (1 +
^{2} - 1200 ] = = Rs. 123.

Difference = Rs. (123 - 120) = Rs. 3.
