See the step by step solution

## Definition

The anticipation of an investor to receive a return on investment is known as expected rate of return. It is calculated by multiplying the potential outcomes by the chances that they will occur, and then adding them together,

## Explanation

The formula for expected rate of return = E (r) = rf + β [E(rM -rf)]

In the above scenario, substituting β = 1 and E(rM) = 15%

E (r) = rf + 1[(15 – rf)]

E (r) = 15%

Therefore the correct answer is option ‘a’. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
