Solution

## The correct option is C Rs. 20500 It will take 10 years for Jairam to pay off Rs. 10000 in 10 yearly installments. ∵ He pays 10% annual interest on remaining amount ∴ Money given in first year =1000+10000×10100=Rs.2000 Money given in second year = 1000 + interest of (10000 – 1000) with interest rate 10% per annum =1000+9000×10100=Rs.1900 Money paid in third year = Rs.1800 etc. So money given by Jairam in 10 years will be Rs. 2000, Rs. 1900, Rs. 1800, Rs. 1700,...., which is in arithmetic progression, whose first term a = 2000 and d = -100 Total money given in 10 years = sum of 10 terms of arithmetic progression =102[2(2000)+(10−1)(−100)]=Rs.15500 Therefore, total money given by Jairam = 5000 + 15500 = Rs.20500.
