d c ?

thats what i got too, d,c, ?

first one is wrong try again. the second one i don’t have an answer. I printed these questions are from the schweser web site i printed them last august but I did not manage to print the answers. i did not buy schweser this time so i can not access the site but If the questions are still the same and if some one with access to schweser can check it will help. the site was http://www.schweser.com/online_program/test_engine/printable_ display.php?test_id=226…

I think the first one is D.

the first one is right, the exact same question is in a sample CFA exam posted through this forum and the answer was 14 maybe schweser had it wrong? or this sample exam is wrong?

I got is from CFA sample questions it said B but not explanation. Amber If you are sure its not B please show the method

number 2 the answer is c you are rights guys. But 1 & 2 seem complicated

d, c how the hell do you calculate no 3. I think something is missing in the question, price and answer choices look completely wrong.

I have never seen a question like #3 before, and I have done schweser practice exams and 5 AIMR samples! Would love to know how to calculate this

formula for BEY is as follows: BEY = [(1000 - Purchase Price) / Purchase Price] x [365 / days to maturity] Will the purchase price be 4.02 % of PAR in this case? Still do not get any close to any of the answers.

If the asset purchase price is 110, the answer is B. Missing part in the question again?
