Question

Suppose someone offered you the choice of two equally risky annuities, each paying $10,000 per year for five years. One is an ordinary annuity, the other is an annuity due. Which of the following statements is most correct (assume a positive discount rate)?

Group of answer choices

the present value of the annuity due exceeds the present value of the ordinary annuity, but the future value of an annuity due may is less than the future value of the ordinary annuity

the present value of the annuity due exceeds the present value of the ordinary annuity, and the future value of an annuity due is greater than the future value of the ordinary annuity

none of the other answers are correct

if interest rates increase, the difference between the present value of the ordinary annuity and the present value of the annuity due remains the same

the present value of the ordinary annuity must exceed the present value of the annuity due, but the future value of an ordinary annuity may be less than the future value of the annuity due

Answer #1

The correct statement is

the present value of the annuity due exceeds the present value of the ordinary annuity, and the future value of an annuity due is greater than the future value of the ordinary annuity

Payment are made/received at the end of the period under ordinary annuity while they are made/received at the begininng of the year under annuity due

Hence, the present value as well as future value of annuity due is more (due to one year additional interest)

You have the option of two equally risk annuities, each paying
RM5,000 per year for eight years. One is an annuity due and the
other is an ordinary annuity. If you are going to be receiving the
annuity payments, which annuity would you choose to maximize your
wealth?
Select one:
a. the annuity due.
b. either one because they have the same present value.
c. Since we don't know the interest rate, we can't find the
value of the annuities...

True or False
1. Suppose you are given a positive discount (or
interest/compound) rate. If you calculated the PV (present value)
of a series of equal cash flows, it will always exceed the FV
(future value) of the same series of cash flows.
2. All else equal, the PV (present value) of an annual ordinary
annuity (i.e cash flows only happen at end of each year) increases
as the frequency of compounding (# of periods per year)
increases.
