A 3 year bond with par value Rs. 1000 has Coupon rate 12%. If the required rate of return is 10% and interest is payable semi  annually, find the value of the bond.
a. 1020
b. 1030
c. 1040
d. 1050
Ans  d
Explanation :
Here, interest is calculated semiannually,
so Coupon = 1000 × 12% ÷ 2 = 60,
YTM = 10%/2 = 0.05,
T = 3 × 2 = 6 years
So, price = 1050

Assume that you have a 6% Coupon console bond. The original face value is Rs. 1000 and the interest rate is 9%. Find the current value of this bond.
a. 567
b. 576
c. 667
d. 676
Ans  c
Explanation :
Current value of console bond
= Coupon ÷ interest rate
= 60 ÷ 0.09
= Rs. 667

Current yield on an 8% Rs. 100 bond is 7.5%. The price of the bond is ......
a. 104.67
b. 105.67
c. 106.67
d. 107.67
Ans  c
Explanation :
Bond Price = (1/(1+R)^t)((coupon*((1+R)^t1)/R)+Face Value)
(Here, t = 1
So, price
= (Coupon + Face Value) ÷ (1 + R)
= (8 + 100) ÷ 1.075 = 100.465)
But, since Coupon Interest = Current Yield × Current Market Price
So, Price = 8 ÷ 7.5% = 8000 ÷ 75 = 106.67

Calculate the present value of 6 year bond with 9 per cent coupon rate with FV Rs. 1000/. Current interest rate is 12 per cent.
a. Rs.843.83
b. Rs.1025.57
c. Rs.876.66
d. Rs.768.68
Ans  c
Solution
FV = 1000
Coupon Rate (CR) = 0.9%
t = 6 year
R (YTM) = 0.12
Annual interest rate payable=1000*9%=90
Principal repayment at the end of 6 year = Rs. 1000
=90 (PVIFA, 12%,6 years)+1000(PVIF,12%, 6 Years)
PVIFA= ((1+r)^t 1)/ r+ PVIF=1/(1+R)^t
=90(1.12^61/0.12*(1.12)^6+1000(1/1.12^6)
=90*1.973821/0.12*1.1.97382+1000(1/1.97382)
=90*0.97382/0.12*1.97382+1000*0.0.50663
=90*0.97382/0.23685+506.63
=90*4.11154+506.63
=370.03+506.63
=876.66
