D
6 years

Solution

## The correct option is A 3 yearsP = Rs. 450; A = Rs. 495; T = 2 years; I = A - P = 495 - 450 = 45$$I = \displaystyle \frac{PTR}{100}$$$$R = \displaystyle \frac{100 \times I}{PT} = \frac{100 \times 45}{450 \times 2} = 5 \%$$Now takeP = Rs. 820; A = Rs. 943; R = 5%; T = ?I = A - P = 943 - 820 = Rs. 123.$$I = \displaystyle \frac{PTR}{100}$$$$T = \displaystyle \frac{100 \times 1}{PR} = \frac{100 \times 123}{820 \times 5} = 3\, years$$Mathematics
