1 Sample Questions – Capital Budgeting Solutions are provided after all four questions Question 1 Rick Lee and Jane Smith are considering building a new bottling plant to meet expected future demand for their new line of tropical coolers. They are considering putting it on a plot of land they have owned for three years. They are analyzing the idea and comparing it to some others. Rick says, “Jane when we do this analysis, we should put in an amount for the cost of the land equal to what we paid for it. After all it did cost us a pretty penny.” Jane retorts, “No, I do not care how much it cost – we have already paid for it. It is what they call a sunk cost. The cost of land shouldn’t be considered.” As financial advisor to Lee and Smith, what do you say? Question 2 Jocelyn Chen & Bosco Lau Toys has developed a new children’s toy.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
