Sameer is an investor who has three options. Which one should he choose?
1 A) Lend to a borrower who is willing to pay compound interest of 12%.
B) Buy property which will give a CAGR of 12%
Option 1 Both are the same
Option 2 (A)
Option 3 (B)
Option 4 Can't say as the investment amount is not given.

As CAGR also takes compounding into effect, the ultimate impact is just the
Solution Infact while we calculate CAGR we calculate the compounded rate at which the
given amount will turn to the final amount.
So, in this case both investment will yield similar returns.

A company's sales revenue becomes five times, of what it was 4 years ago.
2 Calculate the CAGR for sales revenue of this company. What will happen to this
CAGR, if the revenue becomes 6.5 times of year 1, in the next year?
Option 1 49.53%, CAGR will decrease in the next year
Option 2 78.98%, CAGR will increase in the next year
Option 3 78.98% CAGR will decrease in the next year
Option 4 49.53% CAGR will increase in the next year

CAGR = (Final value/Initial value)1/n - 1.

= 5^(1/4) - 1
Solution = 49.53%.
In the 6th year CAGR will be = 6.5^(1/5) -1 = 43.09%
Hence, CAGR has decreased.

Anand has an FD which is yielding an annual interest of 8.5%. Now he is

planning to liquidate this FD and invest this money into a business which will
also give him an expected return of 8.5%. Calculate the NPV and IRR for the
new project.
Option 1
IRR = 8.5%
Option 2
IRR = 8.5%
Option 3
IRR = 4.25%
Option 4 Data insufficient
Anand is earning as much in his new business, as he was earning with his FD.
So the returns are equal to the comparison rate. Hence, NPV would be 0.
Also, IRR is that rate of interest at which NPV is equal to zero, hence in this
case IRR would be 8.5%.

The following data relates to three independent investment projects:

Assume a 10 percent required rate of return and rank these projects according
to Net Present value.
Option 1 A, C, B
Option 2 C, B, A
Option 3 A, B, C
Option 4 B, C, A


Solution 10
Net Present Value (Sum of all the cash flows)

We see that NPV is highest for Project A, followed by proje

Option 2 Both (A) & (D)
Option 3 Only (A)
Option 4 Only ( C )

Risk is specific to a particular industry/company. So, in order to diversify the

risk one should choose stocks of companies which are not correlated to each
Solution other.
If that be the case, the performance of one stock will not affect the other,
hence risk will be minimum.

An investor wishes to invest in the stock markets for the short term. The
market is very volatile at this time, so in order to hedge himself against the
risk, the investor goes in for derivative products such as stock options, instead
of buying stocks. What important things should he keep in mind before

Option 1 The amount of premium he would be paying for buying the options.
Option 2 The probability of the loss he may suffer.
Option 3 The amount he is investing.
Option 4 The amount of loss he may suffer
For measuring the risk, two most important things to be considered are :
The quantum (amount) of loss one may suffer, and
the probability of occurrence of such loss.
These two factors will help in deciding whether the premium paid for the
options is justified.

Hence,three of the given options are important for making this decision.

Mamta Steels has bought machinery for INR 5 crores in April, 2004. This

KDR Steels has reported a PAT of INR 200 cr for the last financial year (FY).
They have bought land for a new plant for INR 120 cr last year and have also
11 reported a depreciation of INR 10 cr. What would be the cash flow from
operations for the company? Assume all the income was from operating
Option 1 210 cr
Option 2 330 cr
Option 3 90 cr
Option 4 310 cr

CFO= PAT + Non-operating expenses - Noncash operating income + Noncash

expenses - Noncash incomes.
= (200+10) cr
= 210 cr.
Investments in new plant will not be a part of cash flow from operations, it will
be included seperately under cash flow from investment activities.
Also, since it is not included in PAT already so we will not consider it here for
CFO calculations.
