Answer:  (2) 16 years

Explanation:-
Given-
Rate = 6.25 %,
Let the principal be Rs. X ,
Then, the amount = 2 X   Simple Interest = 2  X- X = X

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

Then,  X = X x 25 x T /100 x 4
1 = T/ 4 x 4
T = 16 years/

Hence, the answer is (2) 16 years.
