Given the third mixture how does one find the ratio in which they were mixed. Interest earned per year = Rs.$\frac{480}{4}\\$ = Rs 120 Therefore, % earned per year = $\frac{120}{4000}\\$ = 3% So, amount invested in 2% = $\frac{2}{3}\\$ * 4000 = $\frac{8000}{3}\\$ The question is "How much money did Ram borrow t 2% interest rate?" ##### Hence, the answer is "$\frac{8000}{3}\\$". Choice A is the correct answer. ###### Best CAT Online Coaching Try upto 40 hours for free Learn from the best! ###### Already have an Account? ###### CAT Coaching in ChennaiCAT 2021Enroll at 49,000/- 44,000/- Online Classroom Batches Starting Now! ###### Best CAT Coaching in Chennai Introductory offer of 5000/- Attend a Demo Class ###### Best Indore IPM & Rohtak IPM CoachingSignup and sample 9 full classes for free.
