    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.
