Solution

## The correct option is D 22080Compound Interest is nothing but Simple interest per year with the amount at the end of every year being the principal for the next year. For the first year ,Simple Interest SI=PNR100So, SI=25000×1×20100=Rs5000So, Amount A=25000+5000=Rs30000For the second year ,P =30000−8000=Rs22000So, SI=22000×1×20100=Rs4400So, Amount A=22000+4400=Rs26400For the third year ,P =26400−8000=Rs18400So, SI=18400×1×20100=Rs3680So, Amount A=18400+3680=Rs22080So, Rs22080 has to paid off to clear the loan.
