### Solution

 Plan A (Simple interest) B (Simple interest) C (Compounded annually) D(Compounded annually) Principle Rs.15,000 Rs.20,000 Rs.10,000 Rs.25,000 Term 42 months 30 months 24 months 12 months Interest rate 10% 7.5% 9% 12.50% Interest Rs.5250 Rs.3750 Rs.1881 Rs.3125

1.   Interest earned under default plan C=Rs.1881
Interest rate of plan A=10%
Interest earned under plan C at 10%p.a compounded annually=Rs.2100
Difference in interest earned=2100-1881= Rs.219 (b)
2.   Original term is 12 and when it is tripled it becomes 36 months.
Interest on Rs.25,000@12.50 p.a (Compounded annually) for 36 months is Rs.10,595.70 (a)
3.   Maturity amount of plan B=Rs.23,750
Rs.23,750 deposited for 2 years in plan A gives Rs.28,500 on maturity. (c)
4.   Interest earned under plan C (Compounded annually)=Rs.1881
Interest earned under-plan C (If the interest is not compounded)=Rs.1800
Ratio will be 1881:1800=209:200 (d)
5.   Investment of Rs.25,000 in plan D will earn Rs.6640.25 in 24 months. (d)
