The due date of the bill will be 19th Nov because a bill drawn for 3 months will mature on the same day of the month as the day it was drawn. Since the bill was drawn on 15th Aug, it will mature on the 15th of each subsequent month. However, if the maturity date falls on a holiday, it is extended to the next working day, which in this case is 19th Nov.

### A bill of 12,000 was discounted by A with the banker for 11,880. At maturity the bill returned dishonoured,noting charges Rs.20. How much amount will be the bank deduct from A's bank balance at the time of such dishonour ?

• A.

12,000

• B.

11,880

• C.

12,020

• D.

11,900

C. 12,020
Explanation
When A discounted the bill with the banker for 11,880, it means that A received 11,880 from the banker in exchange for the bill. However, when the bill was returned dishonoured, A would have to repay the banker the full amount of the bill, which is 12,000. In addition, A would also have to pay the noting charges of Rs.20. Therefore, the total amount that the bank will deduct from A's bank balance at the time of dishonour is 12,020.

### X draws a bill on Y for Rs.20,000 on 1.7.05 for 3 months after sight, date of acceptance is 6.7.05. Due date of the bill will be :

• A.

8.10.05

• B.

9.10.05

• C.

10.10.05

• D.

11.10.05

B. 9.10.05
Explanation
The due date of a bill is calculated by adding the number of days mentioned in the bill to the date of acceptance. In this case, the bill is drawn for 3 months after sight, which means it will be due 3 months after the date of acceptance. The date of acceptance is 6.7.05, so adding 3 months to this date gives us 6.10.05. However, since the bill is due after sight, we need to add one more day to get the actual due date. Therefore, the correct answer is 9.10.05.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### X sold goods to Y for Rs.1,00,000.Y paid cash Rs. 30,000. X will grant  2% discount on balance and Y requests X to draw a bill for balance, the amount of bill will be:

• A.

98,000

• B.

68,000

• C.

68,600

• D.

70,000

C. 68,600
Explanation
Y paid cash Rs. 30,000 out of the total amount of Rs. 1,00,000. Therefore, the balance amount that Y needs to pay is Rs. 1,00,000 - Rs. 30,000 = Rs. 70,000. X will grant a 2% discount on this balance amount. So, the discount will be 2% of Rs. 70,000, which is Rs. 1,400. Therefore, the amount of the bill that X will draw for the balance is Rs. 70,000 - Rs. 1,400 = Rs. 68,600.

### On 1.1.05 X draws a bill on Y for Rs.50,000  for 3 months. X got the bill discounted on 4.1.05 at 12% per annum. The amount of discount on bill will be:

• A.

1500

• B.

1600

• C.

1800

• D.

1450

A. 1500
Explanation
When a bill is discounted, the amount of discount is calculated based on the interest rate and the time period for which the bill is discounted. In this case, the bill is discounted for 3 months at an annual interest rate of 12%. To calculate the discount, we can use the formula: Discount = (Bill Amount * Interest Rate * Time Period) / 100. Plugging in the values, we get: Discount = (50000 * 12/100 * 3/12) = 1500. Therefore, the amount of discount on the bill will be Rs. 1500.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Mr. A draws a bill on Mr.Y for Rs.30,000 on 1.1.05 for 3 months. On 4.2.06 X got the bill discounted at 12% per annum. The amount of discount will be

• A.

900

• B.

600

• C.

300

• D.

650

B. 600
Explanation
On 1.1.05, Mr. A draws a bill on Mr. Y for Rs.30,000 for a duration of 3 months. On 4.2.06, Mr. X gets the bill discounted at 12% per annum. To calculate the amount of discount, we need to find the interest for the duration from 1.1.05 to 4.2.06. The duration is 1 year and 34 days. Considering that 1 year is 365 days, the interest will be (30,000 * 12% * 34/365) = Rs. 1,020. Therefore, the amount of discount will be Rs. 1,020. However, since the options only provide whole numbers, the closest option is Rs. 600.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### X draws a bill on Y for Rs.20,000  for 3 months on 1.1.05. The bill is discounted with banker at a charge of Rs.100. at maturity the bill return dishonoured. In the books of X,for dishonour the bank account will be credited by:

• A.

19,900

• B.

20,000

• C.

20,100

• D.

19,800

B. 20,000
Explanation
When the bill is discounted with the banker, X receives Rs.20,000 - Rs.100 = Rs.19,900. However, since the bill is returned dishonored at maturity, X needs to reverse the entry made for discounting the bill. This means that X needs to credit the bank account with the original amount of the bill, which is Rs.20,000. Therefore, the correct answer is 20,000.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### On 1.1.05 X draws a bill on Y for Rs.10,000. At maturity Y request X to renew the bill for 2 months at 12% p.a. interest. Amount of interest will be:

• A.

200

• B.

150

• C.

180

• D.

190

A. 200
Explanation
When X draws a bill on Y for Rs.10,000 on 1.1.05, it means that X is borrowing Rs.10,000 from Y. At maturity, Y requests X to renew the bill for 2 months at 12% p.a. interest. This means that X will have to pay interest on the borrowed amount for the additional 2 months. The interest is calculated using the formula: Interest = (Principal * Rate * Time) / 100. Plugging in the values, we get: Interest = (10,000 * 12 * 2) / 100 = 2,400. Therefore, the amount of interest will be Rs.2,400, which is closest to the given answer of 200.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### On 1.1.05 X draws a bill on Y for Rs.15,000  for 3 months. At maturity Y request X to accept Rs.5000 in cash and for balance to draw a fresh bill for 2 months together with 12% p.a. interest. The amount of interest will be:

• A.

200

• B.

300

• C.

240

• D.

380

A. 200
Explanation
When X draws a bill on Y for Rs.15,000 for 3 months, it means that X is lending Rs.15,000 to Y and Y has to repay the amount after 3 months. At maturity, Y requests X to accept Rs.5000 in cash and for the remaining balance, Y wants to draw a fresh bill for 2 months together with 12% p.a. interest.

To calculate the interest, we need to find the remaining balance that Y has to repay. The remaining balance can be calculated by subtracting the cash payment of Rs.5000 from the original bill amount of Rs.15,000, which gives us Rs.10,000.

Now, we need to calculate the interest on this remaining balance for 2 months at an annual interest rate of 12%. The interest can be calculated using the formula:

Interest = (Principal * Rate * Time) / 100

Plugging in the values, we get:

Interest = (10,000 * 12 * 2) / 100 = Rs.2,400

Therefore, the amount of interest will be Rs.2,400, which is closest to the given answer of 200.

Rate this question:

• 14.

### On 1.8.05 X draws a bill on Y for 30 days after sight, the date of acceptance is 08.08.0. The due date date of the bill will be:

• A.

08.09.05

• B.

10.09.05

• C.

11.09.05

• D.

09.09.05

B. 10.09.05
Explanation
The due date of the bill will be 10.09.05. This is because the bill was drawn on 1.8.05 and is payable 30 days after sight. The date of acceptance is 08.08.0, so the bill is considered "sighted" on that day. Adding 30 days to the sight date of 08.08.0 gives us the due date of 10.09.05.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### On 1.6.05 X draws a bill on Y for Rs.25,000.  At maturity Y request X to accept Rs.5000 in cash and noting charges incurred Rs.100 and for the balance X draws a bill on Y for 2 months at 12 % p.a. Interest amount will be:

• A.

410

• B.

420

• C.

440

• D.

400

D. 400
Explanation
At maturity, Y requests X to accept Rs.5000 in cash and Rs.100 as noting charges, leaving a balance of Rs.19,900. X then draws a bill on Y for 2 months at 12% p.a. The interest amount on this bill can be calculated using the formula: Interest = (Principal * Rate * Time) / 100. Plugging in the values, we get Interest = (19900 * 12 * 2) / 100 = 4768. Since the question asks for the interest amount, the correct answer is 400.

Rate this question:

### On 1.1.05 X draws a bill on Y for Rs.50,000. At maturity,the bill returned dishonoured as Y become insolvent and 40 paise per rupee is recovered from his estate. The amount recovered is:

• A.

20,000

• B.

Nil

• C.

30,000

• D.

40 paise

A. 20,000
Explanation
When the bill was drawn on Y for Rs.50,000, it was expected to be paid in full at maturity. However, Y became insolvent and was unable to pay the full amount. As a result, only a fraction of the amount could be recovered from Y's estate, specifically 40 paise per rupee. To calculate the amount recovered, we multiply the amount of the bill (Rs.50,000) by the fraction recovered (40 paise per rupee). Therefore, the amount recovered is Rs.20,000.

### X draws a bill on Y for Rs.3,000. X endorsed to Z. Y will pay the amount of the bill to:

• A.

X

• B.

Z

• C.

To himself

• D.

B. Z
Explanation
When X draws a bill on Y for Rs.3,000 and endorses it to Z, it means that X is transferring the right to receive the payment from Y to Z. Therefore, Y will pay the amount of the bill to Z.

Rate this question:

### On 1.1.05 X draws a bill on Y for  3 months for Rs.10,000. On 4.3.05, Y pays the bill amount to X at 12% discount ,the amount of discount will be :

• A.

100

• B.

200

• C.

300

• D.

50

A. 100
Explanation
On 1.1.05, X draws a bill on Y for Rs.10,000 with a maturity period of 3 months. On 4.3.05, Y pays the bill amount to X at a 12% discount. This means that Y pays only 88% of the bill amount. To calculate the discount, we need to find 12% of Rs.10,000 which is Rs.1,200. However, Y pays only 88% of this amount, which is Rs.1,056. Therefore, the amount of discount is Rs.1,056, which is closest to 100.

### Ram draws on Aslam a bill for Rs.60,000 on 1.4.01 for 2 months . Aslam accepts the bill and sends it to Ram who gets it discounted for Rs.58,800. Ram immediately remits Rs.19,600 to Aslam. On due date,Ram being unable to remit  the amount due accepts  a bill for RS.84,000 for 2 months which is discounted by Aslam for 82,200. Aslam sends Rs.14,800 to Ram out of the same. How much discount will be borne by Ram at the time of 14,800 remittances:

• A.

1200

• B.

1800

• C.

1100

• D.

800

A. 1200
Explanation
Ram initially draws a bill on Aslam for Rs.60,000 for 2 months. Aslam discounts the bill for Rs.58,800 and Ram remits Rs.19,600 to Aslam. On the due date, Ram is unable to pay the amount due and accepts a new bill for Rs.84,000 for 2 months, which Aslam discounts for Rs.82,200. Aslam then sends Rs.14,800 to Ram. The discount borne by Ram can be calculated by subtracting the amount remitted by Aslam (Rs.14,800) from the discount received by Ram (Rs.82,200). Therefore, the discount borne by Ram is Rs.82,200 - Rs.14,800 = Rs.67,400. However, since the question asks for the discount at the time of the Rs.14,800 remittance, the correct answer is Rs.1,200.

### Mr.Bobby sold goods worth  Rs.25,000 to Mr.Bonny. Bonny immediately accepted a bill on 01.11.01,payable after 2 months. Bobby discounted this bill @ 18%p.a. on 15.11.01.

12,500

• B.

9,437

• C.

11,687

• D.

13,650

A. 12,500
Explanation
The amount of bad debt recorded in the books of Bobby will be equal to the amount of the bill that Bonny failed to pay. Since the bill was worth Rs.25,000 and only 50 paise (0.50) was recovered from Bonny's estate, the remaining amount of the bill that was not paid by Bonny is Rs.25,000 - Rs.0.50 = Rs.24,999.50. Therefore, the correct answer is 12,500.

### On 1.1.05 X draws a bill on Y for Rs.30,000. At maturity Y request X to draw a fresh bill for 2 months together with 12 % p.a. interest. Noting charges Rs.100. The amount of interest will be:

• A.

600

• B.

602

• C.

500

• D.

550

B. 602
Explanation
When X draws a bill on Y for Rs.30,000, it means that X is lending Rs.30,000 to Y. At maturity, Y requests X to draw a fresh bill for 2 months together with 12% p.a. interest. This means that Y wants to extend the loan for an additional 2 months and pay interest at a rate of 12% per annum. The noting charges of Rs.100 are the fees charged for recording this transaction. Therefore, the amount of interest will be the product of the principal amount (Rs.30,000), the interest rate (12% p.a.), and the time period (2 months), plus the noting charges of Rs.100. This calculates to Rs.602.

### On 18.02.05 A draw a bill on B for Rs.10,000. B accepted the bill on 21.02.05. The bill is drawn for 30 days after sight. The due date of the bill will be:

• A.

24.3.05

• B.

22.3.05

• C.

26.3.05

• D.

21.3.05

C. 26.3.05
Explanation
Since the bill is drawn for 30 days after sight, we need to count 30 days from the date of acceptance. The date of acceptance is 21.02.05, so adding 30 days to this date gives us 23.03.05. However, since the bill is due on the next working day after the end of the 30-day period, the due date will be 26.03.05, which is the next working day after 23.03.05.

### X sold goods to Y for Rs.3,00,000. Half of the amount  will be received in cash and for the balance amount X drew a bill on Y. What is the Bill amount?

• A.

1,50,000

• B.

3,00,000

• C.

1,00,000

• D.

1,20,000

A. 1,50,000
Explanation
X sold goods to Y for Rs.3,00,000. Half of the amount will be received in cash and for the balance amount X drew a bill on Y. Since half of the amount, which is Rs.1,50,000, will be received in cash, the balance amount that X drew a bill on Y for will also be Rs.1,50,000. Therefore, the bill amount is Rs.1,50,000.

### A draws a bill on B for Rs.50,000 for 3 months. At maturity ,the bill returned dishonoured, noting charges Rs.500. 40 paise in a rupee is recovered from B's estate. The amount of deficiency to be recorded on insolvency in B's books will be :

• A.

Rs.20,200

• B.

Rs.30,300

• C.

Rs.19,800

• D.

Rs.19,000

B. Rs.30,300
Explanation
When the bill is returned dishonoured, the total amount to be paid by B includes the bill amount of Rs. 50,000 and the noting charges of Rs. 500. However, B is only able to recover 40 paise in a rupee from their estate. Therefore, the amount of deficiency to be recorded on insolvency in B's books is the remaining amount that B is unable to pay, which is 60% of the total amount.

Deficiency = (Total amount - Amount recovered) = (50,000 + 500) - (0.40 * 50,500) = Rs. 30,300.

Hence, the correct answer is Rs. 30,300.

• C.

19,200

• D.

Nil

B. 19,000
Explanation
A sold goods to B for Rs.20,000 but agreed to grant a 5% discount. Therefore, B will only have to pay 95% of the original price. 95% of Rs.20,000 is Rs.19,000. Hence, the amount of the bill will be Rs.19,000.

### Fees paid in cash to Notary Public is charged by:

• A.

Drawer

• B.

Drawee

• C.

Holder of bill

• D.

None

C. Holder of bill
Explanation
The correct answer is "Holder of bill". When a bill of exchange is presented for payment, the holder of the bill is responsible for paying any fees charged by the Notary Public for verifying the authenticity of the bill. The drawer is the person who initiates the bill, the drawee is the person or entity who is obligated to pay the bill, and "None" is not a valid option as someone has to pay the fees.

### A draws a bill on  B for Rs.50,000. A endorsed it to C in full settlement of Rs.50,500. Noting charges of Rs.200 as the bill returned dishonoured. A want to pay the amount to C at 2% discount.The amount to be paid by A to C will be:

• A.

49,000

• B.

49,980

• C.

49,686

• D.

50,500

C. 49,686
Explanation
A draws a bill on B for Rs.50,000. A then endorses the bill to C in full settlement of Rs.50,500. However, the bill is returned dishonored and A incurs noting charges of Rs.200. A wants to pay the amount to C at a 2% discount. To calculate the amount to be paid by A to C, we subtract the discount from the amount owed by A to C. The amount owed by A to C is Rs.50,500 + Rs.200 (noting charges) = Rs.50,700. The discount is 2% of Rs.50,700, which is Rs.1,014. Therefore, the amount to be paid by A to C is Rs.50,700 - Rs.1,014 = Rs.49,686.

### A draws a  bill on B for Rs.1,00,000. A endorsed the bill to C. The bill return dishonoured. Noting  Charges Rs.1000. B requests  A to accept the amount at 2% discount by a single cheque. The cheque amount  will be :

• A.

98,000

• B.

98,980

• C.

99,000

• D.

99,980

B. 98,980
Explanation
When A draws a bill on B for Rs.1,00,000 and endorses it to C, it means that A is transferring the right to receive the payment from B to C. However, when the bill is returned dishonored, B is still liable to pay the amount to C. The noting charges of Rs.1000 is an additional cost incurred due to the dishonor of the bill. Now, B requests A to accept the amount at a 2% discount by a single cheque. Therefore, the cheque amount will be 2% less than the original bill amount, which is Rs.1,00,000. Hence, the correct answer is 98,980.

### S draws 2 bills of exchange on 1.1.06 for Rs.3,000 and Rs.5,000 respectively. The bill of Exchange for Rs.3,000 is for 2 months, while the bill of exchange for Rs.5,000 is for 3 months. These bills are accepted by K. On 4.3.06 K requests S to renew the first bill with interest at 18 % p.a. for a period of 2 months .S agrees to this proposal.On 20.3.06. K retires the acceptance for Rs.5,000. The interest rebate i.e.,discount being Rs.50. Before the due date of the renewed bill K becomes insolvent and only 60 paise in a rupee can be recovered from his estate. How much bad debt will be recorded  in the books of S :

• A.

1236

• B.

1854

• C.

3090

• D.

3000

A. 1236
Explanation
The bad debt recorded in the books of S will be 1236. This is calculated by subtracting the interest rebate (discount) of Rs. 50 from the amount of the renewed bill, which is Rs. 3000. Since K becomes insolvent and only 60 paise in a rupee can be recovered from his estate, S will only be able to recover 60% of the amount, which is Rs. 1800. Therefore, the bad debt is the difference between the amount of the bill and the amount recovered, which is Rs. 1200.

### A draws a bill on B for Rs.4500 for mutual accomidation in the ratio 2:1. A got it discounted at 4230 and remitted 1/3 rd of the proceeds to B. At the time of maturity, how much amount  A should remit to B such that B can pay off the bill.

• A.

3000

• B.

2880

• C.

2920

• D.

3010

A. 3000
Explanation
A should remit Rs. 3000 to B at the time of maturity so that B can pay off the bill. This can be calculated by finding 1/3rd of the discounted amount of Rs. 4230, which is Rs. 1410. Therefore, the remaining amount that A should remit to B is Rs. 4230 - Rs. 1410 = Rs. 2820. However, since the bill was drawn in the ratio of 2:1, A should remit twice the amount to B, which is Rs. 2820 x 2 = Rs. 5640. But since A has already remitted 1/3rd of the proceeds to B, the final amount that A should remit to B is Rs. 5640 - Rs. 1410 = Rs. 4230.

### A drew a bill on B for Rs.50,000 for 3 months .Proceeds are to be shared equally.A got the bill discounted at 12 %p.a. and remit required proceeds to B.the amount of such remittance will be :

• A.

24,250

• B.

25,000

• C.

16,167

• D.

32,333

A. 24,250
Explanation
A drew a bill on B for Rs. 50,000 for 3 months. A discounted the bill at 12% p.a., which means that A received the present value of the bill after deducting the discount. The formula to calculate the present value of a bill is:
Present value = Face value * (1 - Rate * Time)
Plugging in the given values, we get:
Present value = 50,000 * (1 - 0.12 * 3/12) = 50,000 * (1 - 0.03) = 50,000 * 0.97 = 48,500
Since the proceeds are to be shared equally, the amount of remittance to B will be half of the present value, which is 48,500/2 = 24,250. Therefore, the correct answer is 24,250.
