Amount after 4n years will be = x ( 1 + k/100)^4n

Amount after 3n years will be = x ( 1 + k/100)^3n

So, required ratio will be -

{ x ( 1 + k/100)^4n } / {x ( 1 + k/100)^3n } = (1+k/100)^n

Hence answer will be a. (1+k/100)^n

The balance after 4n years is (1+k/100)^4n. The balance after 3n is (1+k/100)^3n. Since it is asking for the ratio, we get (1+k/100)^4n:(1+k/100)^3n=(1+k/100)^4n/(1+k/100)^3n=(1+k/100)^4n-3n
=(1+k/100)^n. Hence, the correct answer is A.
