Expert Answer:

**First Case**
Nominal value of 1 share = Rs. 30
Nominal value of 300 shares = 30 x 300 = Rs. 9000
market value of 1 share = Rs 18
Market value of 300 shares = 18 x 300 = Rs. 5400
Dividend = 5% of Rs. 9000 = Rs. 450
**Second Case**
Nominal value of 1 share = Rs 20
Market value of 1 share = Rs. 15
No. of shares purchased = 5400/15 = 360
Man buyies 360 shares of Rs.20.
