Step-by-step explanation:Let the sum be Rs.100

Computation of compound interest:

Prinicpal =Rs.100

R=10% per annum and n=2 years.

Amount=Rs.

Computation of simple interest:

Prinicpal =Rs.100

R=10% and Time =2 years.

∴S.I.=Rs.(

100

100×10×2

)=Rs.20

Thus, difference in C.I. and S.I.=Rs.(21−20)=Re.1

Now, if difference between C.I and S.I. is Re.1, Then Sum =Rs.100

If difference between C.I. and S.I. is Rs.500, Then Sum =Rs.(100×500)=Rs.50000
