Question: 1

A company declared a semiannual dividend of \$\$7{1}/{2}\$\$%. Find out the annual dividend of Chetan, owning 1250 shares of the company having a par value of Rs.10 each

(A) Rs. 1575

(B) Rs. 1680

(C) Rs. 1757

(D) Rs. 1875

Ans: D

Annual dividend on one share = \$\$(2 × 7{1}/{2})%\$\$

i.e., 15% of Rs. 10

= \$\$({15}/{100} × 10)\$\$ = Rs. 1.50

∴ Annual dividend on 1250 shares

= Rs. (1250 × 1.50) = Rs. 1875.

(B) Rs. 1500

(C) Rs. 1550

(D) Rs. 1600

Ans: B

Face value of the stock = Rs.20000

Income on Rs. 100 stock = Rs. \$\$7{1}/{2}\$\$

Income on Rs. 1 stock = Rs. \$\$({15/2})/{100}\$\$ = Rs. \$\$({15}/{200})\$\$

Income on Rs. 20000 stock = Rs. \$\$({15}/{200} × 20000)\$\$ = Rs.1500.

For income of Rs. \$\$9{1}/{2}\$\$, the investment = Rs. 90.90.

For income of Rs. 1938,

the investment = Rs. \$\$({90.90 × 2}/{19} × 1938)\$\$ = Rs. 18543.60.

(D) Rs. 15%

Ans: D

Number of shares = 125000

Par value of a share = Rs. 20

Total dividend = Rs. 375000

∴ Rate of dividend paid by the company

= \$\$({375000} / {2500000} × 100)%\$\$ = 15%.
