Rs. 1992.

Soln.
Ans: a

The amount required to purchase Rs. 100 stock is $110 + 2$. So, for buying Rs. 1600 stock, the required cash is Rs. $(110 + 2)/100$ × 1600 = Rs. 1792.

Soln.
Ans: a

Income on 1 share = $10/100$ × 238 = $2380/100$. Rs. 17 is an income on investment of Rs. 100. So, Rs. $2380/100$ will be earned on an investment of Rs. $100/17$ × $2380/100$ = Rs. 140.
