Questions on GDP / GNP
Go through the following data and answer the questions (all in Indian Rupees in Crores)
1. Consumptions  Rs. 30000
2. Gross investment  Rs. 40000
3. Govt spending  Rs. 20000
4. Export  Rs. 70000
5. Import  Rs. 60000
6. Taxes  Rs. 5000
7. Subsidies(on production and import)  RS. 1000
8. Compensation of employee  Rs. 500
9. Property Income  Rs. 500
7,8,9  Net receivable from aboard
10.Total capital gains from overseas investment  Rs. 1500
11.Income earned by foreign national domestically  Rs. 500
Calculate GNP
GDP = Consumption + Gross investment + Government spending + (Exports  Imports)
GDP = C+I+G+(XM)
= 30000+40000+20000+(7000060000)
= 100000
GNP=GDP+NR(total capital gains from Overseas investmentincome earned by foreign national domestically)
= 100000 + (1500500)
= 101000

Questions on Business Mathematics
Find the present value of quarterly payment of Rs. 250 for 5 years @ 12% compounded quarterly.
Here,
P = Rs. 250
T = 5 years = 5 × 4 = 20 quarters
R = 12% = 12% ÷ 4 = 0.03% quarterly
PV = P / R * [(1+R)^T  1]/(1+R)^T
PV = 250 × (1.0320 – 1) ÷ (0.03 × 1.0320)
= 3719
.............................................
Mr x is to receive Rs. 10000, as interest on bonds by end of each year for 5 years @ 5% roi. Calculate the present value of the amount he is to receive.
Here,
P = 10000
R = 5% p.a.
T = 5 Y
PV = P / R * [(1+R)^T  1]/(1+R)^T
PV to be received, if the amount invested at end of each year:
So,
FV = (100000÷0.05) * {(1+0.05)^5 – 1} ÷ (1+0.05)^5
= 43295
.............................................
X opened a recurring account with a bank to deposit Rs. 16000 by the end of each year @ 10% roi. How much he would get at the end of 3rd year?
Here,
P = 16000
R = 10% p.a.
T = 3 yrs
FV = P / R * [(1+R)^T  1]
FV = 16000 * (1.13 – 1) ÷ 0.1
= 52960

Questions on Money Supply
Given,
Currency with public  Rs. 120000 Crores
Demand deposit with banking system  Rs. 200000 Crores
Time deposits with banking system  Rs. 250000 Crores
Other deposit with RBI  Rs. 300000 Crores
Savings deposit of post office savings banks  Rs. 100000 Crores
All deposit with post office savings bank excluding NSCs  Rs. 50000 Crores
Calculate M2.
M1 = currency with public + demand deposit with the banking system + other deposits with RBI
M1 = 120000+200000+300000
M1 = 620000
M2 = M1+Savings deposit of post office savings banks
So,
M2 = 620000+100000
M2 = 720000 Crores

Given,
Currency with public  Rs. 120000 Crores
Demand deposit with banking system  Rs. 200000 Crores
Time deposits with banking system  Rs. 250000 Crores
Other deposit with RBI  Rs. 300000 Crores
Savings deposit of post office savings banks  Rs. 100000 Crores
All deposit with post office savings bank excluding NSCs  Rs. 50000 Crores
Calculate broad money M3.
M1 = currency with public + demand deposit with the banking system + other deposits with RBI
M1 = 120000+200000+300000
M1 = 620000
M3 = M1+Time deposit with banking system
So,
M3 = 620000+250000
M3 = 870000 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.
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

Questions on Bond/YTM
A bond has been issued with a face value of Rs. 1000 at 10% Coupon for 3 years. The required rate of return is 8%. What is the value of the bond if the Coupon amount is payable on halfyearly basis?
Here,
FV = 1000
CR = 10% halfyearly = 5% p.a.
Coupon = FV × CR = 50
R = 8% yearly = 4% p.a.
t = 3 years
Bond Price = (1/(1+R)^t)((coupon*((1+R)^t1)/R)+Face Value)
= 1052
.............................................
A console bond of Rs. 10000 is issued at 6%. Coupon current interst rates and 9%. Find out the current value of the console bond.
Solution :
= 10000*0.06/0.09
= 6000/0.09
= 6670
.............................................
Suppose you purchased a bond Rs.1000 for Rs.920. The interest is 10 percent, and it will mature in 10 years. Calculate Yield to maturity
C=Coupon payment
F=Face value
P=Price
n=Years to maturity
Yield To Maturity=C+(FP/n)/(F+P/2)
=100+(1000920/10)/(1000+920/2)
=100+(80/10)/(1920/2)
=100+8/960
=108/960
=0.1125
=11.25%
.............................................
A bond has been issued with a face value of Rs. 20000 at 12% Coupon for 3 years. The required rate of return is 10%. What is the value of the bond?
Here,
FV = 20000
Coupon Rate (CR) = 0.12
t = 3 yr
R (YTM) = 0.10
Coupon = FV × CR = 2400
Bond Price = (1/(1+R)^t)((coupon*((1+R)^t1)/R)+Face Value)
So, Value of bond = 20995
