    Answer: (1) 39.60
    Explanation:-
    Given-
    Principal = Rs.11,000 Time = 2 years , Rate = 6 %.

    Formula-
    Simple Interest = P x R x T/100
    Where, P = principal , R = rate, & T = time.

    Then, the Simple interest = 11,000 x 2 x 6 /100
    = 110 x 12
    = Rs.1320

    Formula-
    Compound Interest = P [(1 + R/100)t – 1]
    Where, P = principal, R = rate, t = time.

    Then, the compound interest = 11000(1 + 6/100)^2 –  11000
    = 11000 x (1 + 3/50)^2 – 11000
    = 11000 x 53 x 53/50 x 50 – 11000
    = 22 x 53 x 53 /5 – 11000
    = 61798/5 – 11000
    = 12359.6 – 11000
    = Rs.1359.6

    The difference between compound and simple interest = 1359.6 – 1320
    = Rs.39.60

    Hence, the answer is (1) Rs.39.60
