#### Solution

$(i)$
Population of the city in 2001 = P $\left( 1 + \frac{R}{100} \right)^2$
$= 6760000 \left( 1 + \frac{4}{100} \right)^2$
$= 6760000 \left( 1 . 04 \right)^2$
$= 7311616$
Thus, Population of the city in 2001 is 7311616.
$(ii)$
Population of the city in 1997 = P $\left( 1 + \frac{R}{100} \right)^{- 2}$
$= 6760000 \left( 1 + \frac{4}{100} \right)^{- 2}$
$= 6760000 \left( 1 . 04 \right)^{- 2}$
$= 6250000$
Thus, Population of the city in 1997 is 6250000.
