In today’s business arena; where the whole world has become a global village; exchange of goods and services is only the basis for every business activity and goods are bought and sold on cash as well as credit basis. In modern business, all the business transactions require the flow of cash either on immediate basis or after a specific time period; especially when large number of transactions are involved then there would be a huge sum of money takes place. Although it is very convenient but risky for either party to receive and make the payment on cash for larger business transactions but the common practice of businessmen is to make use of certain documents as means for making and receiving payments. Some of these documents are known as negotiable instruments.
According to section 13 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881, a negotiable instrument means “promissory note, bill of exchange, or cheque, payable either to order or to bearer”.
Negotiable means “transferable” and instruments mean “documents”. So, negotiable instruments are those documents which are transferable; used for payment in business transactions and are transferable freely from one person to another.
According to the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881; there are just three types of negotiable instruments i.e., promissory note, bill of exchange and cheque. However, many other documents are also recognized as negotiable instruments; on the basis of custom and usage, like hundis, treasury bills, share warrants, etc., provided they possess the features of negotiability.
You are required to identify the types of negotiable instruments as well as justifications about discussion questions given below.
Suppose Mr. Ahmad has taken a loan of Rs. 1, 00,000 from his colleague Mr.Ali, and made a proper document which was stating that he will pay the prescribed amount of loan to Mr. Ali immediate after two months, after that he duly signed and stamped that document and handed over to Mr. Ali.
After one month Ali had to go abroad for a period of 3 months for an official tour by his company and handed over that document to his younger brother Mr. Hassan to collect the assigned amount of money after a month on his behalf from Mr. Ali, but on due date Mr. Hassan handed over that document to his colleague Mr. Zaid to collect the money from Mr. Ahmad on his behalf.
Suppose Mr. Bilal has given a loan of Rs. 25,000 to Mr. Umer, which Umer has to return, Now, Mr. Bilal also has to give an amount of Rs. 25,000 to Mr. Saad. So Mr. Bilal has made a document directing Mr. Umer to make payment up to Rs. 25,000 to Mr. Saad on demand or after expiry of a certain period.
1. In above two cases, identify the types of negotiable instruments in each case (promissory note, bill of exchange, cheque, hundis, treasury bills, or share warrants).

In my point of view functional resume will be suitable for him
A functional resume is a good format to use if you are changing careers. Although you don't have an employment history in the field in which are seeking a new job, you do have skills you have obtained through other experiences, both paid and unpaid. These are calledtransferable skills and a functional resume allows you to highlight them.
This type of resume categorizes your job skills by function, emphasizing your abilities. Follow your name, contact information and objective with a section for each of the functions or abilities you want to highlight. Your related work experience goes beneath each section heading. For brevity's sake, try to keep to a maximum of three of four functions. For example you might have sections titled "Supervision and Management," "Accounting," and "Writing and Editing." Within the section titled "Writing and Editing," one of your items might be "Edited monthly newsletter to promote upcoming library events and workshops." Begin with the function on which you want to place the most emphasis. Choose the one that is most relevant to the job for which you are applying. Target your resume to different employers by changing your objective as well as the order in which you list the functions. The one downside of a functional resume is that it doesn't provide a job history. This may arouse the suspicions of the person reviewing your resume who will surely want to know something about your employment history. A combination resume will solve this problem
