Par value of 85 shares = Rs. 100 × 85 = Rs. 8,500
Market value of 85 shares = Rs. 150 × 85 = Rs. 12,750

Dividend = 6.5% of Rs. 8,500

(ii) Required income = Rs. 552.50 + Rs. 260 = Rs. 812.50

If income is Rs. 552.50,then investment is
Rs. 12,750
If income is Rs. 812.50, then investment is = (12,750)/(552.50) × 812.50
= Rs. 18,750
More investment required = Rs. 18,750 – Rs. 12,750
= Rs. 6,000 Ans.
