Present value of six month treasury bill = 100/(1+0.07)^1/2
= 100/1.0344
= Rs.96.67

Price of the consol = 8/(1+0.06)
= Rs.7.55 

Price of the bond = coupon payment/(1+i)^n + face value/(1+i)^n
= 9/(1+0.08)^5 + 1000/(1+0.08)^5
= 9/1.4693 +1000/1.4693
= 6.1254 + 680.5962
= Rs.686.72

Current yield = 6 / 98
= 6.12%
Holding period return = yearly coupon payment/ price paid + change in the price of bond/ price of the bond
= 9/100 + 1050-1000/1000
= 0.94% + 0.05
= 0.94% + 5%
= 5.94%
