    Answer : Option A

    Explanation :

     

    Gain in 2 years
    = Rs. 5000 x \(\frac { 25 } { 4 } \)   x   \(\frac { 25 } {100 }\) - \([\frac { 500*4*2 } {100} ]\)  
         
      = Rs. (625 - 400)
      = Rs. 225.

     

     Gain in 1 year = Rs.[     \(\frac { 225 } { 2 }\)  ] = Rs. 112.50
