    Answer: (2) 10 years
    Explanation:-
    A sum becomes 3 times in 20 years,
    Given-
    Let the principal is P.
    Time = 20 years, S I = 3 P – P = 2 P  & R = ?
    Formula-
    Simple Interest = P x R x T/100
    Where, P = principal , R = rate, & T = time.

    Then, 2 P = P x 20 x R/100
    2 = 20 R/100
    1 = R/10
    R = 10 %.

    The sum will be double,
    Then, S I = 2 P – P = P , R = 10 %  & T = ?
    P = P x 10 x T/100
    1 = 10 T/100
    1 = T/10
    T = 10 years
    Hence, the answer is (2) 10 years.
