Correct option is C)

We know, Interest = 100 PRT

Interest at 1st rate for 1 year = 800×

100 6×1 =Rs.48

Interest for 1 year at 2nd rate = 1200×

100 7×1 =Rs.84

Therefore, the total interest for 1 year = Rs. 132

Hence, the required time =

132 1584 =12 years

**Given :**

A person borrowed 1,200 at 8% p.a. and Rs. 1,800 at 10% p.a. as simple interest for the same period. He has to pay Rs. 1,380 in all as interest.

**Concept used :**

Interest = (Principle × Rate of interest × time)/100

**Calculation:**

Let the time period be 't' years

Interest for Rs. 1200 at 8% rate of interest = (1200 × 8 × t)/100 = 96t

Interest for Rs. 1800 at 10% rate of interest = (1800 × 10 × t)/100 = 180t

Total interest = 1380

⇒ 96t + 180t = 1380 ⇒ 276t = 1380 ⇒ t = 5 years.

**∴ Option 4 will be the correct answer.**
