    Answer: (2) 12%

    Explanation:-
    Given-
    Simple Interest = 1 paisa per month
    Let the rate of interest be R%.

    Simple Interest = Principal x Time x Rate/100

    Then, 1/100 = 1 x 1 x R/100 x 12
    1 = R/12
    R = 12%

    Then, the rate percent of per annum is 10%.

    Hence, the answer is (2) 12%.
