Question 68

# On which day is the ratio of the maximum price to the opening price, the highest across the ten days?

Solution

Going by considering the given options :

The ratio is given by :

$$\frac{\left(Maximum\ price\right)}{Opening\ price}$$

Day 3 : (Maximum price, Opening price ) : ( 2440, 2405)Â  = the ratio = 1.014

Day 4 :Â (Maximum price, Opening price ) : (2455, 2432.5) = ratio =Â  1.009

Day 10 :Â (Maximum price, Opening price ) : ( 2330, 2292.5) = 1.016

Day 1 :Â (Maximum price, Opening price ) : ( 2415, 2395) = 1.008

Day 9 :Â (Maximum price, Opening price ) : ( 2330, 2297.5) =Â  1.014
