Solution

Total investment = Rs 20,020

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs 26

Market value of 1 share = Rs 26+ 10% of Rs 26

= Rs 26+ Rs 2.60 = Rs 28.60

∴ No of shares purchased = `20.020/28.60` = 700 shares

Nominal value of 700 shares= Rs 26 x 700 = Rs 18,200

Dividend% = 15%

Dividend = 15% of Rs 18,200

= `15/100` x  18200 = Rs 2730

`:. "Income"%  = "Income"/"Investment" xx 100%`

`= 2730/20020 xx 100% = 150/11% = 13  7/11%`
