The market interest rate is the rate of interest prevailing which is being offered on cash deposits.

Using the formula,we find out nominal rate of interest,

nr=rr+i+(rr×i)

=12%+5%+(12×5)%

=17.6% or 0.176

(where nr=nominal rate,rr=real rate of interest,i=inflation rate)

Using the formula,we find out future value,

FV=PV(1+r)

F=2000/(1+0.176)

Hence,correct option is B.
