Answer #1

Given 3 year Treasury rate of interest = 1.92%

10 year Treasury security rate of interest = 5.62% p.a

Let the 7 year Treasury rate of interest be x

**As per the Expectation theory**

**( 1+1.92%)^3 ( 1+x%)^7 = ( 1+5.62%)^10**

(1.0192)^3 (1+x%)^7 = (1.0562)^10

1.058713 ( 1+x%)^7 = 1.727673

( 1+x%)^7 = 1.727673/1.058713

( 1+x%)^7= 1.6319

1+x% = 1.6319^1/7

1+x% = 1.6319^ 0.1429

1+x% = 1.0724

x% = 1.0724-1

x% = 0.0724

**x% = 7.24%**

**Hence the 7 year Treasury rate is 7.24%.So the answer is
close to 7.21%**

**So option c) 7.21% is the Correct answer.**
