    Answer: (c) 80 

    Solution:-
    Given-
    Principal = Rs. 8, 000,   Rate = 10%  &   Time = 2 years

    Simple Interest = 8, 000 x 10 x 2/100
     = 80 x 10 x 2
     = Rs. 1, 600

    Compound Interest = 8, 000 (1 + 10/100)^2  – 8, 000
     = 8, 000 x 11 x 11/10 x 10 – 8, 000
     = 80 x 11 x 11 – 8, 000
     =  9, 680 – 8, 000
     = Rs. 1, 680

    Then, the difference between compound interest and simple interest = 1680 – 1600
     = Rs. 80. 

    Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 80.
