A. 0.8
B. 1.0
C. 1.2

2) The security market line represents __________
A. the risk-return for all portfolios which can be constructed from the risk-free investment and the optimal risky portfolio
B. the relationship between beta and expected return
C. the relationship between an investment’s return and the return on an index
D. the relationship between an investment's return and the return on a negative beta portfolio
1) Beta of Market remains same irrespective of the standard
deviation of the market.
Hence Option b Beta = 1.0
2) Option b relation between beta and expected return, Expected

(2*5) Consider a market with many risky assets and a risk-free security. Asset’s returns are not perfectly correlated. All the CAPM assumptions hold and the market is in equilibrium. The risk-free rate is 5%, the expected return on the market is 15%. Mr. T and Mrs. R are two investors with mean-variance utility functions and different risk-aversion coefficients. They both invest into efficient portfolios composed of the market portfolio and the risk-free security. Mr. T’s portfolio has an expected return...
