Sushant has to run 400 m to finish the race.

In the time Sushant runs 400 m, Rajkumar can run 500 m.

∴ When Sushant finished the race, Rajkumar would have another 100 m to run.

∴ Sushant wins the race and he beats Rajkumar by 100 m.

a) 17000

b) 18560

c) 17280

d) 21560


Let each instalment be x

Value of 26400 at the end of the first year = 26400 × 1.2 i.e. 31680

As Irfan repaid x at the end of the first year, he has to repay the value of the balance of (31680 − x) at the end of the second year

⇒ 1⋅2 (31680 − x) = x

∴ x = 17280
