Q. |
If the total investment flows from FIIs were to be doubled in the next year and the investment flows from all other sources had remained constant at their existing levels for this year, then what would be the proportion of FII investment in the total investment flows into India Bonds in the next year (approximately)? |

✖ A. |
40% |

✔ B. |
50% |

✖ C. |
60% |

✖ D. |
70% |

**Solution:**

Option(**B**) is correct

FIIs currently account for 33 out of 100.

If their value is doubled and all other investments are kept constant then their new value would be 66 out of 133

⇒ Proportion approximately equal to,

$=\dfrac{66}{133}$

$= 0.496$

$≈ \textbf{50%.}$
