Explanation:

Annnual Interest Income = 60 million * (1+3%) - 7million

= 1.8million

Annual Interest Expense = 70 million * (1+1%) - 70 million

= 0.6 million

Profit = 1.8 million - 0.6 million

= 0.2million

If all interest rates were to rise by 1 percent, that essentially means the spread between Treasury note interest and CD interest remains the same as both the interest rates are increasing by 1 percent equally. Therefore, there won't be any effect on the profit of the bank.

If interest rate rise 1 percent, bank's profit in the second year falls to = 60 million *(3%-2%)

= 0.6 million
