**RBI Grade B Time Value of Money: Explanation **

Here are the explanations of the Time Value of Money questions asked in the RBI Grade B exams:

** Explanation 1 **

An annuity is defined as a series of equal cash flows that occurs every period i.e., at equal time intervals for a finite number of periods It may occur at the beginning of the Period or Ending of the Period. The goal of an annuity is to provide a steady stream of income, typically during retirement.

Annuities are intended as income-generating products and are not typically meant for capital appreciation. Annuities are therefore best suited for individuals who want to add retirement income later on, or who wish to convert a large lump sum into a guaranteed stream of cash flows over time.

If Every Cash Flow occurred at the beginning of the Period, then it is called Annuity Due and If Every Cash Flow occurred at Ending of the Period, then it is called Ordinary Annuity.

Therefore, the correct answer will be option D.

**Explanation 2**

Here, Rs. 250 got converted into Rs. 1000 in 16 years which means that the initial amount has quadrupled (4x) in 16 years. Thereby, we can apply the rule of 144 and get the rate of interest.

Use formula, 144/N = R, where N is the number of years and R is the rate of return, in the question N is 16 years, so when you substitute the value, it will be 144/16 = 9%.

Thereby the correct answer will be option C.

**Explanation 3**

The question is very direct, and apply the formula for rule of 72, which can be expressed as below

Rate of Interest (r) = 72/Number of years (n), here R is 8%, substitute the values, you will get

Number of years = 72/8 = 9 Years.

Thereby the correct answer will be option C.

**Explanation 4**

This question is based on the formula of Future value of annuity, which is

Future value of annuity = Present value * FVAF for 5 years at 5% rate of Interest.

FVAF is short for, Future value of annuity factor, which is given in the question, as 5.52. So, future value of annuity = 5000*5.52 = 27600.

Therefore the correct answer will be option B.
