Solution:
P is the term initially invested. Torres gets 3P after 6 years.We need to find what more amount could he have gotten after 24 years.
Let’s arrange the data:
Amount Time
? 24
P 0
3P 6
3P*3 12
3P*3*3 18
3P*3*3*3 24
= 81P
Therefore, more amount Toress would have got= 81P-3P=78P

Option D

6y: P > 3P
12y: 3P > 9P
18y: 9P >27P
24y: 27P > 81P

81P - 3P = 78P

24 years / 6 years as every 6 years the investment becomes thrice of the investment . So we get 24/6 = 4 intervals .

Now,
P$ ---------3P$ (1-6 YEARS)
3P$--(*3)--9P& (6-12 YEARS)
9P$--(*3)--27P$ (12- 18 YEARS)
27P$-(*3)--81P$ (18- 24 YEARS)

NOW How much more amount could he have gotten after 24 years , simply find difference between the amt he received and the final amt which he would have received after 24 years = 3P$ -81P$ = 78$ ,

ANSWER IS D
