In the year 2013 = 68 lakhs

In the year 2014 = 72 lakhs

In the year 2015 = 75 lakhs

5. None of these

Compound Interest = Rs. 9270

Total amount = 75000 + 9270 = Rs. 84270

Number of years (n) = 2

Total amount = P*(1 + (r/100))n

84270 = 75000*(1 + (r/100))2

(84270/75000) = [(100 + r)/100]2

(2809/2500) = [(100 + r)/100]2

(53/50)2 = [(100 + r)/100]2

(53/50) = [(100 + r)/100]

106 = 100 + r

r = 6 %

Total amount = Rs. 73205

Ratio of the sum invested by P and R = 3: 2 (3x, 2x)

3x = 75000

X = 25000

Principle amount invested by R = 2x = Rs. 50000

Total amount = P*(1 + (r/100))n

73205 = 50000*[110/100]n

73205/50000 = [11/10]n

14641/10000 = [11/10]n

(11/10)4 = [11/10]n

n = 4

Number of years = 4 years

Total amount = Rs. 92238.30

Total amount = P*(1 + (r/100))n

92238.30 = P*(1 + (10/100))4

92238.30 = P*(110/100)4

92238.30 = P*(11/10)4

P = 92238.30*(10000/14641)

P = Rs. 63000

The ratio of the sum invested by P and S = 5: 6 (5x, 6x)

5x = 75000

X = 15000

The principle amount invested by S = 6x = Rs. 90000

Total amount = Rs. 104976

Total amount = P*(1 + (r/100))n

104976 = 90000*[(100 + r)/100]2

(104976/90000) = [(100 + r)/100]2

(729/625) = [(100 + r)/100]2

(27/25)2 = [(100 + r)/100]2

27/25 = [(100 + r)/100]

108 = 100 + r

r = 8 %

Rate of interest = 8 %

Principle amount invested by Q = (80/100)*75000

= > Rs. 60000

Compound interest = Rs. 9457.50

Total amount = 60000 + 9457.50 = Rs. 69457.50

Total amount = P*(1 + (r/100))n

69457.50 = 60000*(1 + (5/100))n

(69457.50/60000) = (105/100)n

(694575/600000) = (21/20)n

9261/8000 = (21/20)n

(21/20)3 = (21/20)n

n = 3

Number of years = 3 years

Direction (6-10)

Total expenses of 4 departments in the year 2012 = 60 lakhs

Total expenses of finance department in the year 2012

= > 60*(20/100) = 12 lakhs

Profit % = 20 %

Total income of finance department in the year 2012

= > Income = 12*(120/100)

= > Income = 14.4 lakhs

The total profit earned by marketing department in the year 2013

Expense of marketing in the year 2013 = 68*(25/100) = 17 lakhs

Income of marketing in the year 2013 = 17*(115/100) = 19.55 lakhs

Profit = 2.55 lakhs

Total expenses of R & D department in the year 2014 and 2015 together

= > 72*(26/100) + 75*(20/100)

= > 18.72 + 15 = 33.72 lakhs

Required difference = 33.72 – 2.55 = 31.17 lakhs = 3117000

The total expenses of agriculture in all the given years together

= > 60*(28/100) + 68*(30/100) + 72*(18/100) + 75*(30/100)

= > 16.8 + 20.4 + 12.96 + 22.5

= > 72.66 lakhs

Required average = 72.66/4 = 18.165 lakhs = 1816500

The profit earned by marketing department the year 2014 = 4.5 lakhs

Expense of marketing department the year 2014 = 72*(25/100) = 18 lakhs

Profit % of marketing department the year 2014 = (4.5/18)*100 = 25 %

The profit earned by R & D department the year 2015 = 3 lakhs

Expense of R & D department the year 2015 = 75*(20/100) = 15 lakhs

Profit % of R & D department the year 2015 = (3/15)*100 = 20 %

Required % = (25/20)*100 = 125 %

The total expenses of marketing and agriculture department in the year 2012

= > 60*(50/100) = 30 lakhs

The total expenses of agriculture department in the year 2014

= > 72*(18/100) = 12.96 lakhs

Required ratio = 30: 12.96 = 3000: 1296 = 125: 54
