2% profit
Your Answer
B
4% profit
Your Answer
C
2% loss
Correct Answer
D
Neither profit nor loss

Solution

The correct option is D Neither profit nor loss
Number of Shares = 2200
MV = ₹200
Total sum invested = 2200 × 200 = ₹4,40,000
FV = ₹100
Dividend = 20% of ₹100 = ₹20
Dividend on 2200 shares = 2200 × 20 = ₹44000
SP of Share = 180 × 2200 = ₹396000
Total amount for which the shares were sold =180 × 2200 = ₹396000
Total amount he got back = ₹44000 + ₹396000 = ₹4,40,000
Since, the amount invested as well as the amount he received after the sale is the same, therefore there was no profit and no loss in this transaction.
