#### Solution

In first case:

No. of shares sold = 1000

Face value of each share = Rs 125

Face value of 1000 shares = Rs (125 x 1000) =Rs 1,25,000

Market value of each share = Rs 150

Market value of 1000 shares = Rs ( 150 x 1000) = Rs 1,50,000

Dividend (income) for 1000 shares = 12 % of Rs 1,25,000 = Rs (12 xx 125000)/100 = Rs 15000

In second case:

Proceeds from selling 1000 shares = Rs 1, 50, 000

Face value of each share = Rs 25

Market value of each share = Rs 60

No. of shares bought = 150000/60 = 2500

Rohit bought 2,500 shares of Rs 60 each.

Face value of 2,500 shares =Rs (25 x 2,500) =Rs 62,500

Dividend (income) for 2,500 shares = 20 % of Rs 62,500 = (20 xx 62500)/100 = Rs 12500

Change in annual income= Rs (12,500 -15,000) = - Rs 2,500 (less)
