    Answer: (2) 20 years

    Explanation:-
    Let the principal be P  and the rate of interest be R

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

    According to the question,
    30 P /100 = P x R x 6/100
    30 P = P x R x 6
    30 = R x 6
    R = 30 /6
    R = 5 %

    Then,  P = P x 5 x T/100
    T = 100/5
    T = 20 years
    Hence, the answer is (2) 20 years.
