The banker's discount on a sum of money for 1 years is Rs. 558 and the true discount on the same sum for 2 years is Rs. 600. The rate percent is:
10%
13%
12%
15%

B.D. for years = Rs. 558.
B.D. for 2 years
 = Rs. 558 x 2 x 2 3
= Rs. 744

T.D. for 2 years = Rs. 600.

 Sum = B.D. x T.D. = Rs. 744 x 600 = Rs. 3100. B.D. - T.D 144
