# Stocks and Shares Quiz Set 014

### Question 1

Mrs. K invests a part of Rs. 39600 in 4% stock at Rs. 120, and the remainder in 5% stock at Rs. 110. If her dividend per annum is Rs. 1480, how much did she invest in 5% stock?

A

Rs. 13200.

B

Rs. 13300.

C

Rs. 13100.

D

Rs. 13400.

Soln.
Ans: a

If she invests x in 5% stock at Rs. 110, then her income from this investment is Rs. \$(x × 5)/110\$. Her income from the 4% stock at Rs. 120 would be \${(39600- x) × 4}/120\$. The sum is Rs. 1480. So \$(x × 5)/110\$ + \${(39600- x) × 4}/120\$ = 1480. Solving for x we get x = Rs. 13200. Please note that if the calculation seems tough in the exam, you can try direct substitution of options one by one.

### Question 2

If dividend income after investing Rs. 5600 in a 7% stock is Rs. 350, then what is the value of the stock?

A

Rs. 112.

B

Rs. 122.

C

Rs. 102.

D

Rs. 132.

Soln.
Ans: a

Let the value be Rs. V. The income is \$7/V\$ × 5600 = Rs. 350. Solving, we get V = Rs. 112.

### Question 3

Rs. R1 are invested in 6% stock at Rs. 75, and R2 is invested in 12% stock at Rs. 100. If the dividends are equal then the ratio of R1 and R2 is?

A

3:2.

B

4:2.

C

3:3.

D

6:7.

Soln.
Ans: a

Return from investing R1 is \$6/75\$ × R1. If it equals return from R2, \$6/75\$ × R1 = \$12/100\$ × R2. So, R1/R2 = \$12/100\$ × \$75/6\$ = 3:2.

### Question 4

An investor has put x Rs. in 4% stock at Rs. 127, and the remaining, Rs. (1214 - x) in 6% at Rs. 113. If the dividends are equal, what is x?

A

Rs. 762.

B

Rs. 862.

C

Rs. 662.

D

Rs. 962.

Soln.
Ans: a

Dividends are equal, so \${x × 4}/127\$ = \${(1214 - x) × 6}/113\$. Solving, we get x = Rs. 762.

### Question 5

An amount of Rs. 2176 is invested in a stock with market value of Rs. 112. The investor earns Rs. 136. What is the dividend(%) of the stock?

A

7%.

B

9%.

C

10%.

D

12%.

Soln.
Ans: a

If investment is Rs. 2176 the earning is Rs. 136. So, if the investment is Rs. 112 the earning should be \$136/2176\$ × 112 = 7%.
