A. 2

B. $$2\frac{1}{2}$$

C. 3

D. 4

**Answer: Option A **

__Solution(By Examveda Team)__

$$\eqalign{
& {\text{Amount}} = Rs.\,\left( {30000 + 4347} \right) \cr
& \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\, = Rs.\,34347 \cr
& {\text{Let}}\,{\text{the}}\,{\text{time}}\,{\text{be}}\,n\,{\text{years}} \cr
& {\text{Then}},30000\,{\left( {1 + \frac{7}{{100}}} \right)^n} = 34347 \cr
& \Rightarrow {\left( {\frac{{107}}{{100}}} \right)^n} = \frac{{34347}}{{30000}} = \frac{{11449}}{{10000}} = {\left( {\frac{{107}}{{100}}} \right)^2} \cr
& \therefore n = 2\,{\text{years}} \cr} $$ Related Questions on Compound Interest
