Question 1 of 30
1. Question
If the Market Rate of Return is equal to the RiskFree Rate, what would be the impact on the Required Rate of Return for a security with a Beta coefficient of 1?
Correct
Explanation:
The correct answer is (b) The Required Rate of Return will be equal to the RiskFree Rate. When the Market Rate of Return equals the RiskFree Rate, the Required Rate of Return for a security with a Beta coefficient of 1 will be the same as the RiskFree Rate.Incorrect

The correct answer is (b) The Required Rate of Return will be equal to the RiskFree Rate. When the Market Rate of Return equals the RiskFree Rate, the Required Rate of Return for a security with a Beta coefficient of 1 will be the same as the RiskFree Rate. 
Question 2 of 30
2. Question
Mr. Thompson, a portfolio manager, is using the CAPM to determine the Required Rate of Return for a diversified portfolio. If the Market Rate of Return decreases while other factors remain constant, what impact will this have on the portfolio’s Required Rate of Return?
Correct
Explanation:
The correct answer is (a) The Required Rate of Return will decrease. In the CAPM, a decrease in the Market Rate of Return, holding other factors constant, leads to a lower Required Rate of Return.Incorrect

The correct answer is (b) The Required Rate of Return will increase. An increase in the Market Risk Premium implies higher compensation for market risk, leading to a higher Required Rate of Return. 
Question 9 of 30
9. Question
Suppose the Market Risk Premium is negative. What does this imply for the Required Rate of Return according to the CAPM?
Correct
Explanation:
The correct answer is (c) The RiskFree Rate becomes the sole determinant. A negative Market Risk Premium implies that investors would prefer riskfree assets over the overall market, making the RiskFree Rate the primary factor in determining the Required Rate of Return.Incorrect
Explanation:
The correct answer is (c) The RiskFree Rate becomes the sole determinant. A negative Market Risk Premium implies that investors would prefer riskfree assets over the overall market, making the RiskFree Rate the primary factor in determining the Required Rate of Return. 
Question 10 of 30
