profit is nothing but interest attained after a period of an year

SI = P*T*R/100

= 2000 * 1 * 10 /100 = 200 ANS : D

The profit the investment yields is the amount of interest earned. We can use the simple interest formula:

Interest = principal x rate x time

I = p x r x t

I = 2,000 x 10/100 x 1

I = 2,000 x 1/10

I = 200

Answer: D

don't confuse profit with the total return:
profit would be 200$ (2000*10%)
while total return is 2200(2000*110%)

\(Profit = Interest\)

Thus, interest = \(\frac{2000*10}{100}\)

So, Profit = \(200\)

Hence, correct answer must be (D) 200

A. $0.2
B. $2
C. $20
D. $200
E. $2,200

SI = \(\frac{PTR}{100}\) (SI = Simple interest, P = Principal, T = Time, R = Rate of interest)
SI = \(\frac{2000 * 1 * 10}{100}\) = 200
Hence profit after a year = $200
Answer D...

After 1 year the investment is worth 2,000 x 0.1 + 2000 = 2,200 dollars. So, a profit of 200 dollars is made.

Answer: D
