    Answer: (1) Rs.920
    Explanation:-
    Principal = Rs.800,          Amount = Rs.920
    Simple interest = 920 – 800 = Rs.120
    Time = 3 years
    Formula –
    Simple interest = Principal x Rate x Time/100
    Then, Rate = Simple interest x 100/Principal x Time
    Rate = 120 x 100/800 x 3
    Rate = 5%
    According to question,
    Rate increased by 3%
    Then, Rate = 5 + 3 = 8%
    Then, Simple interest = 800 x 8 x3/100
    = Rs.192
    Amount = 800 + 192 = Rs.992
    Hence, the answer is (1) Rs.920
