1. 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
