Find Correlation coefficient for X and Y values given below :
X= (1,2,3,4,5)
Y= {11,22,34,43,56}
a. 0.8899
b. 0.9989
c. 1.0899
d. 1.0989
Ans  b
Explanation :
Step 1: Find Mean for X and Y
X=15/5=3
Y=166/5=33.2
Step 2: Calculate Standard Deviation for Y inputs:
σx=
√(1/(N1)*((x1xm)2+(x2xm)2+..+(xnxm)2))
=√(1/(51)((1133.2)2+(2233.2)2+(3433.2)2+(4333.2)2+(5633.2)2))
=√(1/4((22.2)2+(11.2)2+(0.8)2+(9.8)2+(22.8)2))
=√(1/4((492.84)+(125.44)+(0.64)+(96.04)+(519.84)))
=√(308.7)
=17.5699
Step 3: Standard Deviation for X Inputs:
σx=
√(1/(N1)*((x1xm)2+(x2xm)2+..+(xnxm)2))
=√(1/(51)((13)2+(23)2+(33)2+(43)2+(53)2))
=√(1/4((2)2+(1)2+(0)2+(1)2+(2)2))
=√(1/4((4)+(1)+(0)+(1)+(4)))
=√(2.5)
=1.5811
Σ((X  μx) (Y  μy))
=(13)(1133.2)+(23)(2233.2)+(33)(3433.2)+(43)(4333.2)+(53)(5633.2)
=(2*22.2) + (1*11.2) + (0* 0.8) + (1 *9.8) + (2* 22.8)
=44.4 + 11.2 + 0 + 9.8 + 45.6
=111
Correlation Coefficient = 111/((51)*1.5811*17.5699)
Correlation Coefficient (r) = 0.9989
Hence the correlation coefficient between the two given data set is 0.9989

Cash = Rs 50000/
Debtors = Rs 100000/
Inventories = Rs 150000/
Current liabilities = Rs 100000/
Total current assets = Rs 300000/
The quick ratio = ?
a. 1.5:1
b. 2:1
c. 3:1
d. 3:2
Ans  a
Let me Explain
Since Quick ratio = Quick asset / CL
Here Quick asset = CA Inventory
Now CA= (Cash + Debtor.....etc ) = Rs 300000/
Here inventories = 150000/
CL = 100000/
Hence QR= 150000/100000
i.e 1.5:1
...................................................
Current ratio of a unit is 2:1 and quick ratio is 1:1. The level of current assets is Rs 20 lac. Find out the amount of quick asset.
a. Rs 8 lac
b. Rs 10 lac
c. Rs 12 lac
d. Rs 15 lac
Ans  b
Let me Explain
Since CR = CA: CL
CR= CA:CL = 2:1
i.e. 20:CL= 2:1
i.e CL = 10 lac
Now QR= 1:1
Since QR= Quick asset/CL ( here quick asset is CAInventory )
Hence QA= CL ~ 10 lac

a. Net worth= ?
b. Tangible net worth = ?
c. Net working capital = ?
d. Quick ratio = ?
e. Current ratio =?
f. Outside liability =?
The correct answer is
a. net worth = 200
b. tangible net worth = 150
c. net working capital = 50
d. Quick ratio= 0.66:1
e. Current ratio = 1.17:2
f. OSL = 600

Given,
Currency with public  Rs. 90000 Crores
Demand deposit with banking system  Rs. 180000 Crores
Time deposits with banking system  Rs. 220000 Crores
Other deposit with RBI  Rs. 260000 Crores
Savings deposit of post office savings banks  Rs. 60000 Crores
All deposit with post office savings bank excluding NSCs  Rs. 50000 Crores
Calculate M2.
a. Rs. 470000 Crores
b. Rs. 550000 Crores
c. Rs. 590000 Crores
d. Rs. 630000 Crores
Ans  c
Solution :
M1 = currency with public + demand deposit with the banking system + other deposits with RBI
M1 = 90000+180000+260000
M1 = 530000
M2 = M1+Savings deposit of post office savings banks
So,
M2 = 530000+60000
M2 = 590000 Crores

Given,
Currency with public  Rs. 90000 Crores
Demand deposit with banking system  Rs. 180000 Crores
Time deposits with banking system  Rs. 220000 Crores
Other deposit with RBI  Rs. 260000 Crores
Savings deposit of post office savings banks  Rs. 60000 Crores
All deposit with post office savings bank excluding NSCs  Rs. 50000 Crores
Calculate M4.
a. Rs. 750000 Crores
b. Rs. 800000 Crores
c. Rs. 810000 Crores
d. Rs. 870000 Crores
Ans  b
Solution :
M4 = M3+All deposit with post office savings bank excluding NSCs
M3 = M1+Time deposit with banking system
M1 = currency with public + demand deposit with the banking system + other deposits with RBI
M1 = 90000+180000+260000
M1 = 530000
So,
M3 = M1+Time deposit with banking system
M3 = 530000+220000
M3 = 750000 Crores
So,
M4 = M3+All deposit with post office savings bank excluding NSCs
M4 = 750000+50000
M4 = 800000 Crores

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
...................................................
A bond has been issued with a face value of Rs. 1000 at 8% Coupon for 3 years. The required rate of return is 7%. What is the value of the bond?
a. 1062.25
b. 1625.25
c. 1026.25
d. 1052.25
Ans – c
Explanation :
Here,
FV = 1000
Coupon Rate (CR) = 0.08
t = 3 yr
R (YTM) = 0.07
Coupon = FV × CR = 80
Bond Price = (1/(1+R)^t)((coupon*((1+R)^t1)/R)+Face Value)
So, Value of bond = 1026.25
(Since Coupon rate > YTM, so Bond’s Value > FV)
...................................................
What is the price of a 20year, zerocoupon bond with a 5.1% yield and Rs. 1000 face value?
a. Rs. 359
b. Rs. 369
c. Rs. 379
d. Rs. 389
Ans  b
Solution :
PV = 1000/(1+0.051)^20
= 369
...................................................
A bond is issued with a face value of 1000 that pays a Rs. 25 Coupon semiannually. Find its Coupon rate.
a. 4
b. 5
c. 6
d. 7
Ans  b
Explanation :
Coupon = Face Value × Coupon Rate
25 = 1000 × CR ÷ 2
So, CR = 5%
