Answer: (3) 1,94,481
Explanation:-

The population of a town = 1,76,400
It increase 5% per annum
Then, the population is after 1 year = 176400  + 176400x 5 /100 = 176400 + 8820
= 185220
and the population is after two years = 185220 + 185220 x 5 /100 + 185220 + 9261
= 1,94,481

Hence, the answer is (3) 1, 94,481.
