1 Economics EOC Quiz Answer Key Personal Finance Economics - (SSEPF4) Creditworthiness, (SSEPF5) Risk-management, (SSEPF6) Earnings Student Name: Teacher Name: Heather Creamer 1) What is the relationship between credit and debt? A) Assuming debt means more credit will be extended. B) Being extended credit means debt has been assumed. C) Credit must be extended before debt can be assumed. D) Debt must be assumed before credit can be extended. Date: Score: Credit must be extended before debt can be assumed. Just because credit is extended does not mean debt is assumed; the borrower must use the credit before it becomes a debt. Likewise, assuming debt does not automatically mean more credit will be extended. 2) Which of these is the BEST example of debt? A) A person buys a new car. B) A person pays interest on a mortgage. C) A person deposits a paycheck into a savings account. D) A person withdraws money from a bank account using an ATM card. An example of debt is when a person pays interest on a mortgage. Debt is a financial obligation to repay a loan, while credit is the amount a borrower may use. Remember, too, that even though most people pay for cars in installments, many do pay cash for the entire value of the automobile and do not go into debt in the process. 3) Which of these factors should consumers research FIRST when they receive a credit card offer with a low introductory rate? A) the APR after the introductory period expires B) the cash advance features offered by the bank C) the type of card, such as secured, regular, or premium D) the availability of special programs, such as "cash back" programs Consumers should research the APR after the introductory period expires of any credit card offer with a low introductory rate. 4) Ravi receives a credit card offer in the mail. The offer contains a low introductory rate. Although all of these are important factors, which of these should he investigate FIRST before accepting the offer? A) the cash advance and ATM features B) the APR after the introductory period expires C) the type of card, such as secured, regular or premium D) availability of special programs, such as frequent flier miles Ravi should investigate the APR after the introductory period expires because the initial APR often increases after a set period of time. Information about most features of a credit card offer are given in a disclosure box that must appear in all credit card solicitations. 1/13

2 5) Most credit card offers use compounding interest. This is usually called the annual percentage rate, or APR. When the interest is compounded frequently, A) the APR goes up. B) the APR goes down. C) the balance grows faster. D) the balance grows slower. When the interest is compounded frequently, the balance grows faster. This results in you paying back much more than you would like to. Look for cards that compound it no more than once per month. 6) Why do banks and other financial institutions require collateral for loans? A) to raise needed funds B) banks want profit motives C) to reduce the risk of lending D) to assess the trustworthiness of the customer To reduce the risk of lending, financial institutions will require collateral before a loan is granted. Collateral is something of value that is forfeited if the loan is not repaid. 7) Derek's Credit Report Furniture City Brooklyn, NY Why would Derek be denied credit for a new car? A) He lives in Brooklyn, New York. B) He still owes a balance for his furniture. C) His payments are too high to afford a car payment. D) He has been late on payments and had account closed. Balance: $578 Date Open: 12/01/2011 Account Type: Installment High Balance: $2500 Terms: $115 for 24 months Pay Status: Late over 60 days Date Closed: 8/30/2012 by Company He has been late on payments and had account closed.
