a)₹ 6624

b) ₹ 6224

c) ₹ 6264

d) ₹ 6262

correct answer is: c) ₹ 6264

**Explanation**

Here,

Principal = ₹ 6000

Rate of interest = 12% per annum

Time = 3 years 8 months or \left(3+\frac{8}{12}\right) or \frac{44}{12} years.

We know, SI =\frac{P\times R\times T}{100}

\therefore SI =\left(\frac{6000\times12\times44}{12\times100}\right)

\rightarrow SI = ₹ 264

We also know,

Amount = (Principal + SI)

\therefore Amount =₹ 6000 + ₹ 264

\rightarrow\ ₹6264

\therefore\ ₹ 6264 will clear off Shanta debt.**Ans:** ₹ 6264 will clear off Shanta debt.
