Question1. How are the SML and the CAPM related? (Draw the appropriate graphs and explain)?

CAPM (Capital Asset Pricing Model) equation is:
r A= r f + beta A (r m - r f)
where:
r A = required/ expected return on any security or portfolio
r f = risk free rate
beta A =beta of any security
rm = return on market portfolio

The CAPM equation thus says that the expected return on any security or portfolio is equal to the risk-free rate plus a risk premium. The CAPM equation shows that ...
