Solution for 1st question

Depri = 150000 - 0 / 5 =30000

So depri for each year will be Rs. 30000 / -

Solution for 2nd question

WDV value after two years will be Rs. 70000 / -

Hi friends, the answer to 1st question is Rs. 30,000 as per SLM method. the question has given only useful life and nothing else. so u can not apply sum of years' digit method.  and

Dep. p.a as per SLM = Historical cost - Scrap Value

Estimated useful life

= 1,50,000 - NIL

5

= Rs. 30,000 p.a

under SLM, depreciation p.a remains the same so the answer is Rs. 30,000
