Question 1.

The bankers discount of a certain sum of money is Rs. 72 and the true discount on the same sum for the same time is Rs. 60. The sum due is:

Options:
1.    Rs. 360
2.    Rs. 432
3.    Rs. 540
4.    Rs. 1080

Sum = $$\frac{B.D.\times T.D.}{B.D.-T.D.}=Rs. \left(\frac{72\times60}{72-60}\right)= Rs.\left(\frac{72\times60}{60}\right)= Rs. 360.$$

Question 2.

The bankers gain on a sum due 3 years hence at 12% per annum is Rs. 270. The bankers discount is:

Options:
1.    Rs. 960
2.    Rs. 840
3.    Rs. 1020
4.    Rs. 760

T.D. = $$\left(\frac{B.G.\times100}{R\times T}\right)=Rs. \left(\frac{270\times100}{12\times3}\right)= Rs. 750$$

B.D. = Rs.(750 + 270) = Rs. 1020.

Question 3.

The bankers discount on a sum of money for 1 $$\frac{1}{2}$$ years is Rs. 558 and the true discount on the same sum for 2 years is Rs. 600. The rate percent is:

Options:
1.    10%
2.    13%
3.    12%
4.    15%

B.D. for  $$\frac{3}{2}$$years = Rs. 558

B.D. for 2 years = Rs. $$\left(558\times\frac{2}{3}\times2\right)$$

= Rs.744

T.D. for 2 years = Rs. 600.

So, Sum = $$\frac{B.D.\times T.D.}{B.D.- T.D.} = Rs.\left(\frac{744\times600}{144}\right) = Rs. 3100$$

Thus, Rs. 744 is S.I. on Rs. 3100 for 2 years.

Therefore Rate =   $$\left(\frac{100\times744}{3100\times2}\right)$$ % = 12 %

Question 4.

The present worth of a certain bill due sometime hence is Rs. 800 and the true discount is Rs. 36. The bankers discount is:

Options:
1.    Rs. 37
2.    Rs. 37.62
3.    Rs. 34.38
4.    Rs. 38.98

B.G. = $$\frac{(T.D.)}{P.W.}^{2} = Rs. \left(\frac{36\times36}{800}\right) = Rs. 1.62$$

So,  B.D. = (T.D. + B.G.) = Rs. (36 + 1.62) = Rs. 37.62

Question 5.

The bankers gain on a bill due 1 year hence at 12% per annum is Rs. 6. The true discount is:

Options:
1.    Rs. 72
2.    Rs. 36
3.    Rs. 54
4.    Rs. 50

T.D. = $$\frac{B.G.\times100}{R\times T} = Rs. \left(\frac{6\times100}{12\times1}\right) = Rs. 50.$$

Question 6.

The bankers gain on a certain sum due 1 $$\frac{1}{2}$$ years hence is  $$\frac{3}{25}$$ of the bankers discount. The rate percent is:

Options:
1.    $$5\frac{1}{5}$$ %
2.    $$9\frac{1}{11}$$ %
3.      $$8\frac{1}{8}$$%
4.      $$6\frac{1}{6}$$ %

Let, B.D = Re. 1.

Then, B.G. = Re.  $$\frac{3}{25}$$

So, T.D. = (B.D. - B.G.) = Re. $$\left(1-\frac{3}{25}\right) = Re. \frac{22}{25}.$$

Sum $$\left(\frac{1\times \left(\frac{22}{25}\right)}{1-\left(\frac{22}{25}\right)}\right) = Rs.\frac{22}{3}$$

S.I. on Rs.  $$\frac{22}{3}$$  for  $$1\frac{1}{2}$$  years is Re.1.

So , Rate =    $$\left(\frac{100\times1}{\frac{22}{3}\times\frac{3}{2}}\right)$$  % =  $$\frac{10c}{11}$$   = $$9\frac{9}{11}$$   %
