P.S. How do I post these questions so that they just appear in the window rather than having to download them?

the question asks you to compute the total interest not the total sum after n years.
The interest earned will be (10000) * (x/100)^n which is the right answer.
If you had to compute the total sum after n years, the answer would be
10000(1 + (x/100)^n)

the question is only asking for the interest, not how much the invested funds will be after n years. D is just giving you the interest formula. what you need is the formula that will give you the interest earned after n years. since this is simple interest, the principal amount will remain the same at 10k. hence b is correct.

10,000n (x/100)

you can pick numbers in the end just to make sure b is correct.
