Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : Rs. 12,000 

Given:

Time period = 3 years

interest amount = Rs. 2160

Calculation:

let the loan amount be Rs. x

We know first year interest is 5% and that keeps increasing by 1% by every passing year

Total interest earned = 5% + 6% + 7% = 18%

So, according to the question 

18% of x = Rs. 2,160

⇒ x = (2160 × 100)/18

⇒ Rs. 12,000

∴ The loan amount was Rs. 12,000
