    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Returns from an investment can be in the form of

    • A.

      Capital Gains

    • B.

      Cash Flow

    • C.

      Both the above

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Both the above
    Explanation
    Returns from an investment can be in the form of capital gains, which refers to the profit made when selling an investment for a higher price than its purchase price. Additionally, returns can also come in the form of cash flow, which refers to the income generated by an investment, such as rental income from a property or dividends from stocks. Therefore, the correct answer is "Both the above" as both capital gains and cash flow can contribute to the returns from an investment.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Rise in general level of prices of goods and services in an economy over a period of time is

    • A.

      Returns

    • B.

      Inflation

    • C.

      Taxation

    • D.

      Liquidity

    Correct Answer
    B. Inflation
    Explanation
    Inflation refers to the increase in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy over a period of time. It is a measure of how much the purchasing power of money decreases. When inflation occurs, the value of money decreases, and it takes more money to buy the same goods and services. This can have various effects on the economy, such as reducing the purchasing power of consumers, increasing costs for businesses, and impacting interest rates and investments.

    Rate this question:

      Taxes

    • B.

      Inflation

    • C.

      Both the above

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Both the above
    Explanation
    The real return from any investment vehicle would be the return after taxes and inflation. Taxes reduce the overall return on investment by taking a portion of the earnings. Inflation erodes the purchasing power of the investment returns over time. Therefore, to determine the true profitability of an investment, it is essential to consider both taxes and inflation.

      House

    • B.

      Gold

    • C.

      Cash

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Cash
    Explanation
    Financial assets are resources with economic value that can be easily converted into cash. While a house and gold may have value, they are not considered financial assets because they cannot be readily converted into cash. Cash, on the other hand, is a financial asset as it is the most liquid form of asset and can be used for transactions and investments. Therefore, the correct answer is cash.

This range allows for a sufficient cushion to cover unexpected expenses or loss of income without relying on credit or liquidating investments. It provides a financial safety net and peace of mind in case of unforeseen circumstances.

This means that after the initial maturity period of 15 years, the account holder has the option to extend the account for an additional 5 years. During this extended period, the account will continue to earn interest and the account holder can make contributions to the account. This flexibility allows individuals to further grow their savings and continue enjoying the tax benefits provided by the PPF account.

    Explanation
    The minimum investment in Post Office Monthly Income Scheme (POMIS) is Rs. 1500. This means that individuals who wish to invest in POMIS must contribute at least Rs. 1500 as their initial investment. Investing a lower amount, such as Rs. 500, would not meet the minimum requirement for this scheme. Similarly, the options of Rs. 50,000 and Rs. 70,000 are higher than the minimum investment amount.

    In Post Office Time Deposits (POTD) interest rates are calculated

    • A.

      Monthly

    • B.

      Quarterly

    • C.

      Half Yearly

    • D.

      Yearly

    Correct Answer
    C. Half Yearly
    Explanation
    In Post Office Time Deposits (POTD), interest rates are calculated on a half-yearly basis. This means that the interest earned on the deposit is calculated and added to the principal amount every six months. This method of calculation allows for compounding of interest, as the interest earned in the first six months becomes part of the principal for the next six months. By calculating interest on a half-yearly basis, investors can benefit from the power of compounding and maximize their returns on their deposits.

    • A.

      Market Price

    • B.

      Book Price

    • C.

      Strike Price

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Strike Price
    Explanation
    The price at which an option is exercised is known as the strike price. This is the predetermined price at which the buyer of the option has the right to buy or sell the underlying asset. It is agreed upon at the time the option contract is created and remains fixed throughout the life of the option. The strike price is important because it determines the profitability of the option at expiration. If the market price of the underlying asset is higher than the strike price for a call option, or lower than the strike price for a put option, the option is considered in-the-money and can be exercised for a profit.

    Treasury Bills (T-Bills) are short-term debt instruments issued by the government to raise funds. The range of period for which T-Bills are issued is 91 days to 364 days. This means that the maturity period of T-Bills can vary from a minimum of 91 days to a maximum of 364 days.

    Gilt Funds faces which risk

    • A.

      Credit risk

    • B.

      Interest rate risk

    • C.

      Both the above

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Interest rate risk
    Explanation
    The correct answer is interest rate risk. Gilt funds are mutual funds that primarily invest in government securities, which are fixed-income securities. These securities are sensitive to changes in interest rates. When interest rates rise, the value of these securities decreases, leading to a decline in the net asset value (NAV) of the gilt fund. Therefore, gilt funds face interest rate risk as the fluctuation in interest rates can impact their returns.
