D
Rs. 99,000

Solution

The correct option is D Rs. $$90, 250$$
current value of Machine $$=Rs. 100,00$$

After 1 year  
value  decreased by $$5 \%$$

value of Machine  is
$$ Rs. 95 \% $$ $$of$$ $$100,000  $$ 

$$\Rightarrow \dfrac{95}{100} \times 100,000 = Rs. 95,000$$ 

After 2 years 

again the value is  decreased by $$5 \%$$ from previous year' s Value 

Now  value of Machine  is
$$= 95 \% $$ $$of$$ $$95,000$$

$$=  \dfrac{95}{100} \times  95,000$$ 

$$=0.95\times  95,000 $$ 

$$ = Rs. 90,250$$ is the value of machine at the of two years
