Average rate of return on the portfolio = 11.30%

Co-efficient of variance = Standard deviation / Mean

Standard deviation of Stk A = 20.79%

Return of Stk A = 11.30%

Standard deviation of Stk B = 20.78%

Return of Stk B = 11.30%

Co-efficient of variance (B) = 1.84

Standard deviation of Port = 20.13%

Return of Portfolio = 11.30%

Co-efficient of variance Port = 1.78
