B. 4853625

D. 5853615

Answer: Option B

Solution(By Examveda Team)

Percentage annual increase :
$$\eqalign{ & = \left( {\frac{{75}}{{1000}} \times 100} \right)\% \cr & = 7\frac{1}{2}\% \cr & = \frac{{15}}{2}\% \cr} $$
Population after 2 years :
$$\eqalign{ & = 4200000{\left( {1 + \frac{{15}}{{2 \times 100}}} \right)^2} \cr & = \left( {4200000 \times \frac{{43}}{{40}} \times \frac{{43}}{{40}}} \right) \cr & = 4853625 \cr} $$
