 a. 2,000 b. 13,893.57 c. 13,447.25 d. none

Thank you

1.) True : while computing value weighted index we use a divisor. Reason the formula as follows sum of the market capitalization for each company and divided it by a divisor which will help to make it a round number.

2.) True: The primary market for stocks is the IPO market initial public offering. The governmanet companies can raise the capital by issuing shares in stock through initial public offerings. The stock markets are the secondary markets.

3.) Ending index value (13,893.57 / 13,447.25 ) * 2000 = 2,066.38

Hence the option is none i.e., D
