4. The interest on Rs. 750 for 2 years is the same as the true discount on Rs. 960 due 2 years hence. If the rate of interest is the same in both cases, it is:

Correct Ans:14%
Explanation:
S.I. on Rs. 750 = T.D. on Rs. 960.

This means P.W. of Rs. 960 due 2 years hence is Rs. 750.

T.D. = Rs. (960 - 750) = Rs. 210.

Thus, S.I. on R.s 750 for 2 years is Rs. 210.

Rate =100 x 210 / 750 x 2% = 14%

5. Rs. 20 is the true discount on Rs. 260 due after a certain time. What will be the true discount on the same sum due after half of the former time, the rate of interest being the same?

Correct Ans:10.40
Explanation:
S.I. on Rs. (260 - 20) for a given time = Rs. 20.

S.I. on Rs. 240 for half the time = Rs. 10.

T.D. on Rs. 250 = Rs. 10.

T.D. on Rs. 260 = Rs.10 x 260 / 250= Rs. 10.40

6. The present worth of Rs. 2310 due 2 years hence, the rate of interest being 15% per annum, is:

Correct Ans:1680

P.W. = Rs. (1760 -160) = Rs. 1600.

S.I. on Rs. 1600 at 12% is Rs. 160.

Time =100 x 160 / 1600 x 126=5 / 6years =5x 12 / 6months = 10 months.

Explanation:
S.P. = P.W. of Rs. 2200 due 1 year hence
= Rs.2200 x 100 / 100 +(10 x 1)
= Rs. 2000.
Gain = Rs. (2000 - 1950) = Rs. 50.

9. The true discount on a bill due 9 months hence at 16% per annum is Rs. 189. The amount of the bill is:

Correct Ans:1764
Explanation:

Let P.W. be Rs.x.

 xx 16 x 9 x 1 = 189 orx= 1575. 12 100

P.W. = Rs. 1575.

Sum due = P.W. + T.D. = Rs. (1575 + 189) = Rs. 1764.

Correct Ans:16 2/3%
Explanation:
S.P. = 102% of Rs. 600 = 102 x 600 / 100= Rs. 612.
Now, P.W. = Rs. 612 and sum = Rs. 688.50.
T.D. = Rs. (688.50 - 612) = Rs. 76.50.
Thus, S.I. on Rs. 612 for 9 months is Rs. 76.50.
Rate =100 x 76.50 / 612 x 3 / 4)%= 16 2/3%
