    Answer: (2) 15 %
    Explanation:-
    Let the rate be R %   & principal is P
    Given-
    Time = 30 years,  Amount = 5.5 times of principal = 5.5 P
    Simple Interest = 5.5 P – P  = 4.5 P

    Formula-
    Simple Interest = P x R x T/100
    Where, P = principal , R = rate, & T = time.

    Then,  4.5 P = P x R x 30/100
    4.5 = 3 R/10
    3 R = 4.5 x 10
    3 R = 45
    R = 45/3
    R =  15 %
    Then, the rate of interest is 15 %.
    Hence, the answer is (2) 15 %.
