360= (72000*r*1) / 100* 12
r = 6 IMO B

Thank you for your explanation. Could you please provide more clarity on the formula used for this as well as the general thought process? Thank you! :)

KHow

formula for simple interest :
SI= (Principal amount * rate of interest * time)/100

in the question we are given SI as $360, P amount as $ 72000 , time as 1 month so 1/12 is done , r value is to be determined..

Hope this helps.
