Answer: (3) Rs. 12, 720 

Solution:-
Given – 
Principal = Rs. 12, 000,  Time = 146 days  &  rate = 15% per annum 

Then, Simple interest = 12, 000 x 15 x 146/100 x 365
 = 120 x 15 x 146/365
 = 720 

Then, paid amount by Tushar to the money-lender = 12, 000 + 720
 Rs, 12, 720.

Hence, the correct answer is option (2) Rs. 12, 720.
