If both projects have the same initial cost and each project lasts for a period of seven years, from year 0 to year 7, which project should Tom invest his money in? Answer Selected Answer: B. The information given is not sufficient to determine the answer. Correct Answer: B. The information given is not sufficient to determine the answer.

the fourth decimal. ) Answer Selected Answer: Correct Answer: Response Feedback: o Question 3 2 out of 2 points Suppose the simple ( i.e. without discounting) sum of the benefits and costs associated with a project is zero. Does it follow that the project's unique rate of return is zero? Answer Selected Answer: Correct Answer: Response Feedback: Consider a project that requires a payment of 1000 dollars today and a payment of 100 dollars due 100 years from today. The project pays 1100 at the end of year 1. The sum of the payments is S=-1000-100+1100 = 0. However, along with the 0 rate of return we get another 99 solutions one of which is .099992. The latter ROR is very close to 10% and makes more sense than a zero ROR since the "-100" amount appearing 100 years later infinitesimal value today. o Question 4 0 out of 2 points
