Best answer

After 2 years the price of the flat will be

  1,00,000 * (1 + 10/100)2 = 1,00,000 * (11/10)2 = 1,21,000              [Calculated in compound interest]

After 2 years the price of the plot of land will be

   1,10,000 * (1 + 5/100)2 = 1,10,000 * (105/100)2 = 121275            [Calculated in compound interest]

So, the plot has higher price than the flat.

Therefore, Ram will pay (121275 - 121000) = 275 rs. to Prem
