Answer:It will take 4 years to deplete the account.Step-by-step explanation:Prudential Reality has an escrow account that contains $20,000.

The client withdraws $5000 now and that leaves $15000.

After one year an amount of $4500 is withdrawn which leaves ($15000 – $4500) = $10500

After two years an amount of $4000 is withdrawn which leaves ( $10500 -$4000) = $6500.

After three years an amount of $3500 is withdrawn which leaves ( $6500 – $3500) = $3000

After four years an amount of $3000 is withdrawn which leaves ($3000 – $3000) = $0 in the account.

Hence it will take 4 years to deplete the account.
