Discussion :: True Discount

The interest on Rs. 750 for 2 years is the same as the true discount on Rs. 960 due 2 years hence. If the rate of interest is the same in both cases, it is:
Answer : Option B
Explanation :
S.I. on Rs. 750 = T.D. on Rs. 960.
This means P.W. of Rs. 960 due 2 years hence is Rs. 750.
T.D. = Rs. (960  750) = Rs. 210.
Thus, S.I. on R.s 750 for 2 years is Rs. 210. r
Rate=\([ \frac { 100*210 } { 750*2} ]\)%=14%
