Hull: Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives, Ninth Edition Chapter 24: Credit Risk Multiple Choice Test Bank: Questions with Answers 1. Suppose that the cumulative probability of a company defaulting by years one, two, three and four are 3%, 6.5%, 10%, and 14.5%, respectively. What is the probability of default in the fourth year conditional on no earlier default? A. 4.5% B. 5.0% C. 5.5% D. 6.0% Answer: B The unconditional PD for the fourth year is 14.5% minus 10% or 4.5%. The probability of no earlier default is 90%. The PD conditional on no earlier default is therefore 0.045/0.9=0.05 or 5% 2. Which of the following is usually used to define the recovery rate of a bond? The recovery rate for a bond is usually defined as the value of the bond immediately after a default as a percent of its face value. This is in spite of the fact that the bond holder’s claim in the event of a default in many jurisdictions is the face value plus accrued interest. 3. Which of the following is true? Risk neutral default probabilities are usually greater than real world default probabilities.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
