- Rs. 48,50,000
- Rs.1,30,00,000
- Rs.1,94,00,000
- None of these

**Answer: (4) None of these**

Explanation:-

Amount doubles itself in every 5 years.

Starting amount = 25, 00, 000

End of the 5 years (in 2005), Amount is = 2 x 25, 00,000 – 50,000

= 50, 00, 000 – 50,000 = Rs.49, 50, 000

End of 2010, Amount is = 2 x 49, 00, 000 – 50, 000

= Rs.98, 50, 000

Amount in 2015 = 2 x 98, 00, 000 – 50, 000

= Rs.1, 97, 00, 000

Amount in 2020 = 2 x 1, 97, 00, 000 = 3, 94, 00, 000

Hence, the amount in the year 2020 will be Rs.3, 94, 00, 000
