I guess Q 2 is (d) as crude oil prices are denominated in dollars. So if price falls, Indian demand increases which further increases import and leads to rupees depreciation.

Your approach is wrong. Where are prices falling ? 138$- 40$ how much price felled ? hence demand won't increase as the final number of cars and motors on road will only be increased marginally.

if the crude price increases -->India need to pay more in $ to buy same amount of oil.--> more $ going outside-->decrease liquidity of $ in India --> increases the values of $ which leads to decreases value of Indian Rupee.

when question is about price other variables are kept constant...i.e when price falls the total import budget falls, cause of which the demand of dollar decreases and rupee appreciates

Bond yield =Earnings on bond/Market Price. You see the inverse relation in between market price of a bond and its yield.

Sharvam your formula is valid for developing an understanding else technically it is wrong.
Bond gives the fixed rate of interest on face value....its like if you buy 100 rs bond at 10% means you will get 10 as profit and if you buy the same bond at 107 still you will get 10 as profit but ur cost of purchase has increased so low profit

price of crude is paid in USD by india. Demand almost remains the same, but less USD flows out. Better USD reserves = stable indian rupee.

if the crude price increases -->India need to pay more in $ to buy same amount of oil.--> more $ going outside-->decrease liquidity of $ in India --> increases the values of $ which leads to decreases value of Indian Rupee.
