Just one general question, and a smaller one :- What's the point of asking others to do one's exercices ? I mean, if someone does a MSc in Finance/FinMaths,... ,usually it's to go and work for a bank afterwards, where he will be asked to solve problems (Financial or Maths one). Basic questions such as P/C Parity, comparison between the option price and its intrinsic value, implied volatility,..., are useful to understand the market (at least as far as I can see). If you can't answer these questions - for a TAKE-HOME exam - what's the point in applygin for a job on the market ?- Second question : seems like the letter "o" oftern disappears in this new typing-mobile phone-like- language : "u shuld do that", "I wuld". Why do people hate this lovely little letter that much ?

well all of you have a very valid point. Firstly to make it clear this is not a take home exam. These are past papers. My lectures were very theoretical, and it did not contain a single numerical example in it. Now when I am trying to go through past papers, ofcourse I do have lots of uncertainity in solving them. I have a decent grade till now . i.e. 2:1st and surely I do not cheat in my university exams, which are certainly not any take home exams. And if you guys think that, I am not making an effort to understand anything, then wait till you see all the 160 graduates in my Finance class, who are certainly not making even this effort. I guess I was just looking for help, everybody learns in his way, and I guess this is the way I am used to learning. How can I ever move forward, when I dont know that what I have done in the past trying by myself is correct or not.Thanks

I was not blaming y(o)u. That was just a general thought. But y(o)u sh(o)uld admit that it did look like a take-home exam to be done by others.

That would be effort.

lix(1) You're at Business School. In England. Try to write intelligibly.(2) Stop sponging. If you really have a problem with question 2, then post your solution so far and ask specific questions.
