Answer: (3) 200 %
Explanation:-
Ramesh invested  an amount = 10 % of Rs.10000
= 10000 x 10/100
= Rs.1000
Then, Principal = Rs.1000,  Time = 3 years,  Amount = Rs.2500
Then, Simple Interest = 2500 – 1000 = Rs.1500
Formula-
Simple Interest = P x R x T/100
Where, P = principal , R = rate, & T = time.
Then, 1500 = 1000 x 3 x R/100
3 = 2 x 3 x R/100
R = 50 %
Four times of actual interest rate = 4 x 50
= 200 %.
Hence, the answer is (3) 200 %.
