    Answer: (2) Rs. 15, 000

    Explanation:-
    Ram bought a bike for Rs. 60, 000. He paid Rs. 10, 000
    Then, rest amount = 60, 000 – 10, 000
    = Rs. 50, 000

    Time = 2 years, Rate = 15%
    Then, the simple interest = 50, 000 x 2 x 15/100
    = 500 x 2 x 15
    = Rs. 15, 000

    Then, he pay Rs. 15, 000 as simple interest.

    Hence, the answer is (2) Rs. 15, 000.
