Question 1
Shareholders of Exxon Oil Company face a variety of risks in holding its shares. If the economy
falters, people tend to travel less and so there is less demand from the airlines industry for Exxon's
fuels. This type of risk that Exxon's shareholders bear is
Systematic/Market Risk.
Specific/Idiosyncratic Risk.

Question 2
Suppose your dear old Grandfather approaches you for investment advice. He knows of your great
training in finance and statistics and gives the following instructions: "Obviously, I want to maximize
my returns, but since my life is now quite boring, I also enjoy a good thrill. My first priority is to pick
the security with the highest return. After that, pick me the most volatile investment so I can enjoy the
thrills of holding risk." Suppose there are three securities (X, Y, and Z) to choose from next year, the
economy will be in an expansion, normal, or recession state with probabilities 0.40, 0.20, and 0.40
respectively. The returns (%) on the securitiies in these states are as follows: Security X {expansion
= +13, normal = +9, recession = +7}; Security Y,{+15,+15,+2}; Security Z {+17,+10,+2.5}. Which
investment best fits your grandfather's needs?
Security Z.
Security Y.
Security X.
