= (2% of 475000)

= 9500 If two different amounts in the ratio 8:9 are invested in Companies P and Q respectively in 2002, then the amounts received after one year as interests from Companies P and Q are respectively in the ratio?

A. 900000
B. 1100000

Total interest received from the two Companies after 1 year  An investor invested a sum of 1200000 in Company P in 1998. The total amount received after one year was re-invested in the same Company for one more year. The total appreciation received by the investor on his investment was?

A. 2,96,200
B. 2,42,200
C. 2,25,600
D. 2,16,000

Explanation:

Amount received from Company P after one year (i.e., in 1998) on investing 1200000 in it

= [1200000 + (8% of 1200000)]

= 1296000

Amount received from Company P after one year on investing 1296000 in the year 1999

= [1296000 + (10% of 1296000)]

= 1425600

Appreciation received on investment during the period of two years

= (1425600 - 1200000)

= 225600

= 2,25,600. An investor invested 500000 in Company Q in 1996. After one year, the entire amount along with the interest was transferred as investment to Company P in 1997 for one year. What amount will be received from Company P, by the investor?

A. 5,94,550
B. 5,80,425
C. 5,77,800
D. 5,77,500

Explanation:

Amount received from Company Q after one year on investment of 500000 in the year 1996

= [500000 + (6.5% of 500000)]

= 532500

Amount received from Company P after one year on investment of 532500 in the year 1997

= [532500 + (9% of 532500)]

= 580425

= 5,80,425.  #### Line Charts
