**Hint**: Assuming the sum of money be Rs.y and at rate 10% per annum compounded half yearly. Calculate amount for the first six months, which is the equation of variable y and then calculating amount for first 12 months i.e. 1 year, which again is an equation of variable y. Substituting these two equations would give the value of y, actual sum of money.

__Complete step-by-step answer__Before solving the question, we must first understand the meaning of interest and compound interest. Interest is the money paid regularly at a particular rate for the use of money lent, or for delaying the repayment of a debt.

Compound interest is the addition of interest to the principal sum of a loan or deposit or in other words, interest on interest.

In compound interest, P = Principal, initial amount of money taken.

R = Rate % per annum

n = time in years.

When interest is compounded annually,

\[\text{Amount=P}{{\left( 1+\dfrac{R}{100} \right)}^{n}}\]

When interest is compounded half yearly,

\[\text{Amount=P}{{\left( 1+\dfrac{\dfrac{R}{2}}{100} \right)}^{2n}}\]

Now, according to the question:

Let the sum of money be Rs. y and given rate = 10% per annum compounded half yearly.

For first six months (half year, $ n=\dfrac{1}{2} $ )

\[\text{A=P}{{\left( 1+\dfrac{\dfrac{R}{2}}{100} \right)}^{2n}}\]

Here, P = y

\[A=y{{\left( 1+\dfrac{\left( \dfrac{10}{2} \right)}{100} \right)}^{2\times \dfrac{1}{2}}}=y\left( \dfrac{21}{20} \right)\]

For first 12 months (1 year, n=1)

\[\begin{align}

& \text{A=P}{{\left( 1+\dfrac{\dfrac{R}{2}}{100} \right)}^{2n}}\text{ (Considering P=y)} \\

& \Rightarrow \text{y}{{\left( 1+\dfrac{10}{100} \right)}^{2\times 1}}=y{{\left( \dfrac{21}{20} \right)}^{2}}=y\left( \dfrac{441}{400} \right) \\

\end{align}\]

Given the difference between the above amounts is Rs.189

\[\begin{align}

& \Rightarrow y\left( \dfrac{441}{400} \right)-y\left( \dfrac{21}{20} \right)=189 \\

& \Rightarrow \left( \dfrac{21}{400} \right)y=189 \\

& \Rightarrow y=\dfrac{189\times 400}{21} \\

& \Rightarrow y=3600 \\

\end{align}\]

Therefore, the sum of money invested at 10% per annum compounded half yearly is Rs.3600

**Note**: Students might get confused while keeping the values of n time, which is in year. For half year n should be $ \dfrac{1}{2} $ and for 1 year n should be 1. Since, students are much more familiar with simple interest formula i.e. $ \text{SI=}\dfrac{\text{P}\times I\times R}{100} $ might use this formula but this would lead to wrong results. Students must use the CI formula as stated here.
