A) for me

From 1) We know the interest earned and the initial amount so can calculate interest rate.

From 2) Taking sq root of 1.15 is <8% So interest rate could be 7.5% or 20%

Second statement is: 2) (1+r/100)^2>1.15

Take root of both sides = (1+r/100) > 1.072 (approx)

Therefore interest could be 7.5%, 8% or higher - insufficient info to answer question.

Is that ok?
