    Answer: (3) Rs.61
    Explanation:-
    Given-
    Principal = Rs.8000, Rate = 5 %, Time = 3 years
    Formula-
    Simple Interest = P x R x T/100
    Where, P = principal , R = rate, & T = time.
    Then, the Simple Interest = 8000 x 5 x 3/100
    = 80 x 5 x 3
    = Rs.1200
    Formula-
    Compound Interest = P [(1 + R/100)t – 1]
    Where, P = principal, R = rate, t = time.
    Then, Compound Interest = 8000[(1 + 5/100)^3 – 1]
    =8000 x (21/20)^3 – 8000
    = 8000 x 21 x 21 x 21 /20 x 20 x 20 – 8000
    = 9261 – 8000
    = Rs.1261
    The difference between the compound interest and simple interest = 1261 – 1200
    = Rs.61
    Hence, the answer is (3) Rs.61.
