The examination consists of 10 multiple choice questions worth 2 points each; 5 questions about pricing stocks and bonds worth 2 points each; 5 true-false questions worth 2 points each; and 2 extended problems, which are worth 5 points each; for a total of 50 points (or, per your syllabus, 25% of your final grade). Please make sure that your copy of the exam has all of the questions. 2. For the multiple choice questions, simply circle the best choice. For the true-false questions, if the statement is true, then simply write True, and move on. If, however, it is false, then write False, and briefly explain why it is false. 3. Unless otherwise stated, all of the multiple choice questions assume that demand curves are negatively sloped and supply curves are positively sloped. 4. When you have finished the exam, turn it in at the front of the room. Barring catastrophe, your graded exam will be returned on Tuesday, November 13.
