# What will be the Sum? If

A sum of money at simple interest amount to Rs. 2240 in 2 years and Rs. 2600 in 5 years. The sum is:

- Rs. 1880
- Rs. 2000
- Rs. 2120
- None of these

**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.
