Dear all, here are some more questions to practice for insurance, suggested by readers of this blog.


A Client has a 20-year moneyback policy with Sum Assured of Rs. 200000, Premium per annum 13,672. 20% will be paid to the policyholder at the end of the 5th year, 10th and the 15th year and 40% for the 20th year. The client has received the 3rd moneyback. You estimate the gross returns presently in the policy considering reversionary bonus of Rs. 50/1000 Sum Assured. You compare the cost benefit if the client pays all premiums & survives the policy & also gets Rs. 150/1000 Sum Assured as loyalty Bonus. You conclude that ______

  1. The additional inflow on 5 future premiums less opportunity cost would be 12% return
  2. The additional inflow on 5 future premiums less opportunity cost would be more than 19% return
  3. The additional inflow on 5 future premiums less opportunity cost would be 30% returns or more
  4. The overall return improves marginally by 1.15% p.a.



A family spends 35000 pm. There is a loan outstanding of 42 lakhs. The client’s son wants to study abroad after 5 years and 50 lakhs is the cost against which he has a saving of 27 lakhs. Find Inflation adjusted life cover for replacing the client, for 5 years of family expense & such life expenses @ 40% for souse’s 30 years survival. Inflation is 5.5% and Return is 9.5%

He receives a sudden inflow of 4 lakhs which he can put in 10% FD for 2 years. Will you advice to repay the loan & invest the EMI systematically every month in a tax efficient instrument @ 9%?

  1. Yes the accumulated amount after 2 years would be more by atleast 20,000 with lower tax than FD
  2. No, FD maturity will be 8,47,000 against total outflow of 7,93,500 in 2 years in loan
  3. No the FD interest would be 1,47,000 where as he may save 98,000 in interest
