### Question 1

### Question 2

Mr. M buys Rs. 60(face value) shares paying 4% dividend. If his investment is getting him an interest of Rs. 2%, what is the market value of the share?

### Question 3

Mrs. K invests a part of Rs. 54000 in 4% stock at Rs. 150, and the remainder in 2% stock at Rs. 120. If her dividend per annum is Rs. 1260, how much did she invest in 2% stock?

**A**

Rs. 18000.

**B**

Rs. 18100.

**C**

Rs. 17900.

**D**

Rs. 18200.

**Ans: a**

If she invests x in 2% stock at Rs. 120, then her income from this investment is Rs. $(x × 2)/120$. Her income from the 4% stock at Rs. 150 would be ${(54000- x) × 4}/150$. The sum is Rs. 1260. So $(x × 2)/120$ + ${(54000- x) × 4}/150$ = 1260. Solving for x we get x = Rs. 18000. Please note that if the calculation seems tough in the exam, you can try direct substitution of options one by one.

### Question 4

Which stock investment option is better: 3% at Rs. 124 or 7% at Rs. 121?

**A**

7% is better.

**B**

3% is better.

**C**

Both are same.

**D**

Can't be decided.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the amount invested be Rs. 124 × 121. Return on the first investment is $3/124$ × 124 × 121 = Rs. 363. Return on the second investment is $7/121$ × 124 × 121 = Rs. 868. So 7% is better.
