I definately remember a question that was word for word exactly the same as either the past exams (2010 - 2014) or schweser questions. But cant specifically remember for the life of me. And no this is not the QQ. It was a theoretical.
I remember Basel saying that Exponential is appropriate above high thresholds in a severity distribution where the losses are independent of that high threshold where risk factors are not easily identifiable or data available. Lognormal can model such amalgamated parameters so is appropriate, in...

If i remember correctly the DV01 question had 4 bonds. 3 long and one short. The net exposure however was long. I used the net Dv01 to plug in the DV01 hedge formula for the available bond. I got a precise answer which was either B or C i think cant remember. Don't know could be totally wrong.

The var and es question. No idea. I just chose the arbitrary averages
Bayes question. No idea. Chose B.
