Jameel invested an amount of Rs.0 for two years. Find the rate of compound interest that will fetch him an amount of Rs.1.50 at the end of two years?

A. 8% p.a.
B. 6% p.a.
C. 4% p.a.
D. 5% p.a.
E. None of these
Explanation:
Let the rate of interest be R% p.a.
0[1 + R/100]2 = 17400 + 1.50
[1 + R/100]2 = (0 + 1.50)/0
= 1 + /0 = 1 + 41/400
= 1/400 = [21/20]2
[1 + R/100] = 21/20
R/100 = 1/20
Therefore R = 5
