For questions pertaining to simple interest and compound interest, these are a few concepts that come in handy

1. Simple interest is the exact same amount for all the years.
2. Compound interest = Simple interest(for first year)
3. Compound interest - Simple interest(for the first two years) = Interest on the interest for the 1st year.


Now, coming back to the problem in hand
If SI is 6000$ for 10 years, the simple interest for one year is \(\frac{$6000}{10} = $600\)

Compound interest(2nd year) $600*2 + Interest on $600 = $1400 -> Interest on $600 = $200
We can calculate the rate of interest as \(\frac{200}{600}*100 = 33\frac{1}{3}\)%. Now, as $600 is the interest for
the first year and we have found rate of interest to be \(33\frac{1}{3}\)%, the principal is \(600*3 = $1800\).

Therefore, the interest rate and the prinicpal are \(33\frac{1}{3}%\) and \($1800\)(Option C) respectively
