Score _ ." ~'irt Section 1 - True/False Questions - 1 Point Each 1. A change in a firm's capital structure (debt versus equity) can have an immediate impact on the levered or equity beta of the firm's stock, but should have no impact on the firm's asset or unlevered beta unless the firm also changes the composition (i.e., risk) of its assets. ~ 2. Modigliani and Miller showed that in a world without taxes, a firm's optimal capital structure would be to go towards 100 percent debt financing. True Fals~ 3.

If we do not, we may easily get nonsensical results. L/ A True B. False 8.
