Assume that you believe in the exact expectation theory.

A.The one year interest rate at t=0 is 0.03 now. The interest rate on the two year loan is 0.035. Calculate the one year interest rate expected(forward rate) at t=1.

B. Suppose further that the interest rate on the three year loan is 0.04. What will be the forecast of the one year interest rate expected(forward rate) at t=2?

C. Suppose futher that the interest rate of the four year loan is 0.043. What will be the forecast of the one year interest rate expected(forward rate) at  t=3?

D.Suppose further that the interest rate of the five year loan is 0.045. What will be the

forecast of the one year interest rate expected(forward rate) at t=4?

Assume that you believe in Mishikin's version of the liquidity premium theory.

A.The interest rate on the two year loan is 0.085 whereas that on one year loan is 0.08 at t=0. The liquidity premium on one year loan is 0 and the liquidity premium on two year  is 0.002.
