(C) 11,200

(D) 10,200

Correct Answer : A
Explanation :

To find the population after 3 years given that it increases at a rate of 10% per annum, you can use the formula for exponential growth:



  • 𝑃P = Population after 𝑛n years
  • 𝑃0P0 = Initial population
  • 𝑟r = Rate of increase (in decimal form)
  • 𝑛n = Number of years


  • 𝑃0=12,000P0=12,000 (Initial population)
  • 𝑟=0.10r=0.10 (10% increase per annum)
  • 𝑛=3n=3 (Number of years)

Substitute these values into the formula:





So, the population after 3 years would be approximately 15,972.
