    B)  Only first claim is true

    C)  Only second claim is true.          

    D)  Neither of the claims is true.

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    (b) After 6 yrs, interest \[=\frac{200000\times 9\times 6}{100}\] \[=108000\] \[\Rightarrow \] amount = \[200000+10800-30800\] Which is greater than \[1.5\] times 2 lakh. After 10 yrs. Interest \[=\frac{2lakh\times 9\times 10}{100}=1.8\,\,lakh\] \[\therefore \] Amount \[=2+1.8=3.8\] lakh but this is less than 2 times original amount.
