Explanation:
Sortino ratio = R-T/DR

R= 6%+9%+4%+12%/4 = 7.75%
T = 7%(Given)
DR = [(1%)^2 + (3%)^2]^.5/4 = 1.5811

Then we put all values in formula given for sortino ratio.
S = R-T/DR
= 7.75% - 7%/ 1.5811 = .4744( Which is nearby .4743)

Could you please explain why did you raise the equation to .5/4 in the DR calculation?
