    Answer: (2) 9%
    Explanation:-

    Rohan lends Rs.10000 in four parts
    Rohan gets Rs.2000 on 8% rate
    then, its simple interest = 2000 x 8 /100 = Rs.160

    Rohan gets Rs.4000 on 15/2%
    then, its simple interest = 4000 x 15/2 x 100 = Rs.300

    Rohan gets Rs.1400 on 17/2%
    then, its simple interest = 1400 x 17/2 100 = Rs.119

    Remainder money = 10000 – (2000 + 4000 + 1400)
    = 10000 – 7400 = Rs.2600
    then, its simple interest = 2600 x 1 x R/100 = 26R
    According to question, Rs.160 + Rs.300 + Rs119 + 26R = 10000 x 8.13/100
    R = 9%

    Hence, 9% of simple interest must he get for remainder.
