Sir there is an issue with the question 3 answer. The annuity df for 5 yrs is 3.791, not 3.761 as you stated in a previous comment. The npv @10% is $ -4.847 .The irr will come to 12.89%

I assume that you are referring to my comment from 2017. There was indeed a mistake in my comment and I have now corrected it. The IRR is not 12.89% however. It is 11.45%.

Hi sir, where does the 7 per annum in q3 come from?

John Moffat says

The coupon rate is 10%, there is tax at 30%, so the net interest cost to the company on $100 nominal is 70% x 10 = 7 per year.

Did you watch the free lectures on this before attempting the test?

Sir i am not getting 5 percent growth rate in question 2. Kindly help. When i take root (36/33.1)^.3333 i get different answer.

John Moffat says

I don’t know where you are getting 33.1 from.

It should be (36/31.1)^0.33333 – 1 = 0.05 (or 5%)

kaydeah says

sir in question 3 ,

I don’t get why we multiply 36 by 1.05

why do we not just divide 36 by 540 and then add the 0.05

kaydeah says

sorry i meant question2

John Moffat says

Because that is what the formula provided on the formula sheet requires!! Did you not watch the free lectures first?

The npv @10% is *$ + 4.847
