I have studied the question and also saw the handsout but the 2nd question is not in my range will any body tell me the method of that question how to solve 

yaar koi toh help keru kuch sumj nahe a raha koi idea he dedo

For Question # 1 (a)
Less 5 Million securities on asset side and withdraw 5 million deposit
For Question # 1 (b)
Reduce the loan by 5 Million on asset side
For Question # 1 (a) (Liability Side)
Add borrowed Funds by 5 Million and withdraw 5 million depost
For Question # 1 (b) (Liability Side)
The same balance sheet which is given in question

yeh ata he second question ata he question 2 ka a part ka idea do


If interest rates increase, Some Bank’s gross profits, the difference between what it pays for its liabilities and earns on its assets, will decline because the value of its rate-sensitive liabilities exceeds that of its rate-sensitive assets

this particular bank will suffer a slight decrease in the gross profit

for q1  liability side part b why the same balance sheet is write in the solution.

What will be the impact of increase in interest rate on the profitability of the bank if the bank has
more interest-sensitive liabilities than interest-sensitive assets?

Interest Rate Risk'
The risk that an investment's value will change due to a change in the absolute level of interest rates, in the spread between two rates, in the shape of the yield curve or in any other interest rate relationship. Such changes usually affect securities inversely and can be reduced by diversifying (investing in fixed-income securities with different durations) or hedging (e.g. through an interest rate swap).

The possibility of a reduction in the value of a security, especially a bond, resulting from a rise in interest rates. This risk can be reduced by diversifying the durations of the fixed-income investments that are held at a given time.
