d)    0.82
e)    0.67

2).The ratio of the sum of the Repo Rates in all the given quarters to that of the Reverse Repo Rates in all the given quarters is

b)    71:57
c)    79:42
d)    61:59
e)    None of these

3).The sum of the Repo Rates in all quarters is what % of the sum of SLRs in all quarters?
a)    35.6%
b)    28.3%
c)    32.3%
d)    34.6%
e)    30.2%

4).The average of all the rates in the third quarter is what percent (approx) of the average of all the rates of the first quarter?

b)    75%
c)    110%
d)    83%

5).What is the sum of the average of MSF and that of Bank Rates?
a)    20.632
b)    17.125
c)    15.251
d)    18.15
e)    None of these

1).  c Required difference
= (8+7+4+22+9+9)/6
- (6.75+5.75+4+23+8+8)/6
= (59/6) – (55.5/6) = (3.5/6) = 0.58

2). d Required ratio =(6.75+8.65+8.25+8)/(5.75+7.5+7.25+7)
= (31.5/27.5) = (63/55) = 63:55

3). d Required % = (6.75+8.5+8.25+8) / (23+22.5+23.5+22) ×100
= (31.5/91)×100 = (3150/91) = 34.6%

4). c Sum of rates in Q3 = 8.25+7.25+4.5+23.5+8.75+8.75 = 61
Sum of rates in Q1 = 6.75+5.75+4+23+8+8 = 55.5
Required % = (61/55.5)×100 = 109.90 = 110%

5). b Required sum = (8+8.5+8.75+9)/4 + (8+8.5+8.75+9)/4 = 2(8+8.5+8.75+9)/4
= (34.25/2) = 17.125
