### "Company A with a market cap of \$25B announces a \$5B stock buy-back program. How would the CDS on Company A react?"

Is this correct? A stock buyback with reduce cash and equity, which increase the leverage ratio. That would increase the CDS spread. Less

Yorkville seems right. Leverage goes up and there is less cash now. Higher risk of default leads to higher risk premium --&gt; higher cds spread Less

### We choose 6 random numbers out of the first 12 prime numbers. What is the probability that the sum is odd

the answer is simply the probability you dont choose 2 assuming the numbers you choose are unique. if there is replacement, its the probability you pick an odd number of 2's. Less

Yeah, just the probability you don't pick a 2. Since you're picking 6 out of 12; Let E(X_n) be the expectation of the indicator variable X_n which takes value 1 if n is chosen and 0 otherwise, then by linearity of expectation, the sum over all 12 E(X_n)s (n=2,3,5,...,p_12) is 6 and since the primes are chosen uniformly, E(X_n)=1/2 for each n. Note that the expectation of an indicator variable is just the probability. So the answer is 1/2. Less

### This wasn't difficult, but it's the only specific question I can remember. You're playing basketball and you're down by 2. You know you can hit a 2-pointer to tie the game with 28% probability, and then go on to win the game in overtime with 50% probability. Alternatively, you know you can hit a 3-pointer and win with 15% probability. Which do you take?

The 3-pointer

3-pointer. First option has a probability of 14% of wining (0.28x0.5) whilst the second option gives you a probability of 28%. Less
