    1. Ans(a);
    Use da equ. : cumulative amount=initial val*int rate^periods.
    the int. rate given is annual 10000*(1.05^5).
    2. Ans(c);
    Apply x(1+n*r)=current value; where x initial cost,n= no of periods,r=rate
    i.e x(1+1/2*.0375)=10000;
    x(1.018... )=10000;
    3. No idea??

    Question 1: 10,000 x 1.055 = 12,762.82 OR ANSWER A

    Question 2:
    variable x 1.0375 /2 = 10,000
    variable x 1.01875 = 10,000
    variable = 10,000 / 1.01875
    variable = 9,815.95

    or ANSWER C

    Question 3:
    5.8% rate for 180 days out of 360 days (50%)
    Therefore rate of 5.8/2 = 2.9%

    variable x 1.029 = 500,000
    variable = 500,000 / 1.029
    variable = 485,908.65 = 485,909

    or ANSWER A
