The banker's gain of a certain sum due 2 years hence at 10% per annum is Rs. 24. The present worth is:

 [A]. Rs. 480 [B]. Rs. 520 [C]. Rs. 600 [D]. Rs. 960

Explanation:

 T.D. = B.G. x 100 = Rs. 24 x 100 = Rs. 120. Rate x Time 10 x 2

 P.W. = 100 x T.D. = Rs. 100 x 120 = Rs. 600. Rate x Time 10 x 2

S.I= (P.R.T) /100 where P=principal, R=Rate, T=Time. 100 is there because rate is specified as a percentage. Just cross multiply the equation P=[(S.I) *100/ (R. T) ] Here P, principal is nothing but the present worth & true Discount is similar to S. I in this case and hence the equation.
