Graded Discussion Question:

Mr. Ali has just been informed by the lottery officials that he has won a lottery. It has been mentioned in the letter that he has to choose between one of the two given alternatives as his Prize money:

A: Rs. 5,000 every year for next 20 years or;

B: Rs. 90,000 after 12 years

If appropriate discount rate is 8%, then

  1. Find the value of each alternative.
  2. Based on the value calculated in first part, suggest which alternative is acceptable for Mr. Ali and why?


You are required to provide complete calculations along with formulas, otherwise marks will be deducted. Also avoid unnecessary details.

PV = FV /(1+rate)n

= 90000/(1+0.08)12


Greater than Present Value 5000

Kya ye method thk ha. i mean me nay ye just idea k liye post kiya hai.. Comment plz

Correct formula kia hy????

Zeeshan  look  1.08^12=2.51817

Then 90000/2.51817 = 35,740.24

Thanks Suny Bro :) 

Feeling Confused 

Plz koe to help kara

Feeling Confused 

A part is constant cash flows its mean this is annuity,so try to use annuity formula for calculating pv of constant cash flows,

which is  Pv=5000[1-1/(1+.08)^20)/.08]

             pv=490,90 Rs.

option B pv is



Pv=35,740 Rs.

2).  Option A is acceptable for Mr.Ali because the pv of 1st alternative is more than second.So it is more feasible for him.

now no more confusions.Stay happy all and Allah paak bless u all.
