Q25 Ans A.

This problem is Related to Time Value of Money. Whenever we solve these kinds of problems we have to ensure that we have a common point at which we can compare the present and future values.

Here, the common point will be the point at which the man retires. First find the PV at the age 50 of the payments that are received during retirement.

PMT = \$5000,
I/Y = 5/12,
N = 360,
FV = 0 => CPT->PV = \$931,408.09

Next, taking this PV (at the age of 50) as FV (for the investment period) find out the PMT

FV = \$931,408.09,
PV = 0,
I/Y = 10/12,
N = 240 => CPT -> PMT = \$1,227

You get B if you use 10% rate during retirement and you get C if you use 5% during working time

Q26. An analyst gathers the following information about a common stock investment:

Action ----------------- ------ --- Date----------- Total Amount (\$)
Purchase of 1 share-----------------1st Jan 2007--------- 100

Sale of 2 shares @ 115 per share---- 31st Dec 2008-------- 230

The stock does not pay a dividend. The money-weighted rate of return on the investment is closest to:

A. 9.687%

Q16 Ans B:

You should calculate using geometric return.
(1+Total return) = (1+r1)*(1+r2) *(1+r3) *(1+r4) *(1+r5) *(1+r6)

Total return = 1.0393

Thanks for pointing that out.

We have revised the question.

Money weighted return is same as IRR. The cash flows are -100, -110 and +230, plug in the calculator to find out the IRR.

Q 27 Ans B :
Since the returns are decreasing an investor who is withdrawing money will have money weighted return more than time weighted return. An investor who is depositing money will have time weighted return more than the money weighted return.

Ans 28.

PV = 10000/1.1 + 20000/1.21+ 20000/1.331= 48159

If 2nd month the interest will be paid on the reduced principal => 10,00,000

Q28 Ans C:
You can solve this through cash flow function or can individually find the present value.

PV = 10,000/1.1 + 20,000/(1.1*1.1) + 20,000/(1.1*1.1*1.1)= 48,159

Using CF;
CF0=0;
C01=10K;
C01=20K;
C01=30K;
I=10%=> Find NPV
