Option 2

Total Value = 100000 + 50000 + 60000 = Rs 210000
Select option 1 because the Total Value of this option is more than option 2

Which formula is used here pls explain

100000*0.12*2*10 = Rs.240000

50000*0.1*10 = Rs.50000

see the question option 1 & 2

amount*interest rate*time*semi annually(1/2*4)

amount = 100000

interest rate = 12% or 12/100 = 0.12

time = 10 years

Half of 100000*interest rate*time

100000*1/2= Rs.50000

interest rate = 10% or 10/100 = 0.1

Time = 10 years
