Correct Answer - Option 4 : 8,262.5

Given:

Total amount with Ayush = Rs. 20000

Rate % for Arnab = 20 %

Rate % for Ravish = 24 %

Time = 2 years

Difference in interest between Arnab and Ravish = Rs. 729

Formula used:

Simple Interest = Principal × Rate/100 × time

Calculation:

Let the money lent to Arnab be ‘a’

Then, money lent to Ravish will be ’20,000 – a’

⇒ Simple interest for Arnab = a × 20/100 × 2

⇒ Simple interest for Arnab = 2a/5

⇒ Simple interest for Ravish = (20,000 – a) × 24/100 × 2

⇒ Simple interest for Ravish = (20,000 – a)12/25

According to the question,

SI from Arnab – SI from Ravish = Rs. 729

⇒ 2a/5 – (20,000 – a)12/25 = 729

⇒ 2a/5 – 9,600 + 12a/25 = 729

⇒ 22a/25 – 9,600 = 729

⇒ 22a/25 = 10,329

⇒ a = 10,329 × 25/22

⇒ a = 11,737.5

Amount lent to Ravish = 20,000 – 11,737.5 = Rs. 8,262.5

∴ The amount of money which Ayush lent to Ravish is Rs. 8,262.5
