Solution

## The correct option is B ₹4921Given that Principal, P = ₹64,000 Rate (per annum), r = 5 % and Time, n = 112 years Since, the rate of interest is calculated annually, for 6 months the half yearly rate will be 52 = 2.5% We know, the amount A A=P(1+r100)n Where, P = Principal r = Rate of interest n = Time Here, r = 52 % and n = 3 half years A=64,000(1+52×100)3 A=64,000(4140)3 A=₹68921 ∵ Compound interest = Amount - Principal = 68921 - 64000 = ₹4921
