    Answer: (2) Rs.2000
    Explanation:-
    Amount of two years = Rs.2240
    Amount of five years = Rs.2600
    Simple interest of three years = 2600 – 2240
    = Rs.360
    Simple Interest of year = 360/3 = 120
    Then, the simple interest of two years = 2 x 120 = Rs.240
    Principal = Amount – Simple interest
    = 2240 – 240 = Rs.2000
    Hence, the principal is Rs.2000.
