Value of loan = $300
let the monthly rate be i
then
34*(1 (1+i)^10)/i = 300
hard to solve this type of equation but I have some methods and it gave me
i = appr .02343
so the annual rate compounded monthly is 28.1 %
check:
34(1  1.02343^10)/.02343 = = 299.9988 , not bad I would say
None of your choices are valid using proper compound interest formulas
