Principal = P
Simple interest = P *  4/100 * 4 years = 0.16 P

Compound interest = P * (1 + 5/100)³ = 1.157625 P - P = 0.157625 P

Given,  0.16 P - 0.157625 P = Rs  225

P = Rs 94,736. 84

Ans is 96000 but how??
then the Difference in the interests is not Rs 225, but it is Rs 228. please check if you have entered data correctly. If SI - CI = Rs 228, then Principal sum = Rs 96,000.
My solution is not wrong. you have unnecessarily reported. please ask for confirmation. it is correct.
