(a) is correct for the first question
15. The answer is 700 (77/0.11). I don't know why they call it the "base". 700 is the "what" in the question.
15. No way can he double his money in two years at 4.75% interest. With monthly compounding, he will earn 4.85% per year, or 9.95% after two years. With simple interest (no compounding), he would earn 2 x 4.75% = 9.5%. That is just over $800.
