    Answer: (3) Rs,500
    Explanation:-
    Let the sum of money is Rs.X
    Formula-
    Simple Interest = P x R x T/100
    Where, P – principal, R – rate  & T – time.
    Simple Interest = Rs.70,  Time = 4 years, Rate = 3.5%  &   =  ?
    Then,
    70 = X x  35 x 4/10 x 100
    70 = X x 7/10 x 5
    10 = X / 50
    X = Rs.500
    Hence, the answer is (3) Rs.500.
