Best answer

The incomes that Subba Rao earned is in A.P., as every year his salary is increased by Rs 200.

Therefore, the salaries of each year from 1995

5000, 5200, 5400, …

Here, a = 5000

d = 200

Let after nth year, his salary be Rs 7000.

Therefore, an = a + (n − 1) d

7000 = 5000 + (n − 1) 200

200(n − 1) = 2000

(n − 1) = 10

n = 11

Therefore, in 11th year, his salary will be Rs 7000.
