In the second one there is nothing mentioned about compounded annually semiannually or quarterly how can we answer.

192/12 = 16.

192 months = 16 years.

Both I and II are giving the same data. So I or II is enough to find the answer.

The statement-II implicitly gives that the interest is compounded annually.

192 months = 16 years.

Both I and II are giving the same data. So I or II is enough to find the answer.
