    Answer: (4) None of these
    Explanation:-
    Given-
    Principal = Rs.25,000,  Time = 4 years,  Simple Interest = Rs.8000
    Formula-
    Simple Interest = P x R x T/100
    Where, P = principal , R = rate, & T = time.
    Then,
    8000 = 25000 x 4 x R/100
    8 = 25 x R/25
    R = 8 %
    Formula-
    Compound Interest = P [(1 + R/100)t – 1]
    Where, P = principal, R = rate, t = time.
    Then, Compound Interest = 25000[(1 + 8/100)4 – 1] = 25000 [(1 + 2/25)4 – 1]
    = 25000 [(27/25)4 – 1]
    = 25000 x 27 x 27 x 27 x 27 /25 x 25 x 25 x 25  – 25000
    = 1000 x 27 x 27  x 27 x 27 /25 x 25 x 25 – 25000
    = 40 x 27 x 27 x 27 x27 /25 x 25 – 25000
    = 8 x 27 x 27 x 27 x 27 /5 x 25 – 25000
    = 4251528/5 x 25 – 25000
    = 34012.22 – 25000
    = 9012.224
    Hence, the answer is (4) None of these.
