    Answer: (1) Rs.127
    Explanation:-
    Principal = Rs.210, Rate = 10%.
    The loan has to be paid two installment, It is take two years.
    Then, Compound interest = P [1 + R/100]2 = 210 (1 + 10/100)2
    = 210 x (1 + 1/10)2
    = 210 x (11/10)2
    = 210 x 11 x 11/10 x 10
    = 254
    It is equal installment,
    Then, 254/2 = Rs.127
    Hence, the value of each installment  is Rs.127.
