# Stocks and Shares Quiz Set 017

### Question 1

Rs. 16200 is invested in Rs. 71 shares having a market rate of Rs. 81. If the dividend on the shares is 12%, what is the total income?

A

Rs. 1704.

B

Rs. 1804.

C

Rs. 1604.

D

Rs. 1904.

Soln.
Ans: a

The total number of shares is 16200/81 = 200. Return for 1 share is \$12/100\$ × 71. Return for 200 shares = \$12/100\$ × 71 × 200 = Rs. 1704.

### Question 2

Mrs. K invests a part of Rs. 54000 in 2% stock at Rs. 150, and the remainder in 8% stock at Rs. 120. If her dividend per annum is Rs. 1680, how much did she invest in 8% stock?

A

Rs. 18000.

B

Rs. 18100.

C

Rs. 17900.

D

Rs. 18200.

Soln.
Ans: a

If she invests x in 8% stock at Rs. 120, then her income from this investment is Rs. \$(x × 8)/120\$. Her income from the 2% stock at Rs. 150 would be \${(54000- x) × 2}/150\$. The sum is Rs. 1680. So \$(x × 8)/120\$ + \${(54000- x) × 2}/150\$ = 1680. 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 3

Mr. X invests Rs. 12000 in 10% stock at Rs. 100. How much will he earn?

A

Rs. 1200.

B

Rs. 1300.

C

Rs. 1100.

D

Rs. 1400.

Soln.
Ans: a

His earning = \$10/100\$ × 12000 = Rs. 1200.

### Question 4

B

Rs. 1486.

C

Rs. 1286.

D

Rs. 1586.

Soln.
Ans: a

The total number of shares is 21600/24 = 900. Return for 1 share is \$11/100\$ × 14. Return for 900 shares = \$11/100\$ × 14 × 900 = Rs. 1386.

### Question 5
