To get A1, this quantity needs to be multiplied by the interest rate (1,000 x 1.05)  For P2, the \$2,000 is A1.  Thus, select Series 2.

(a) i = 3%. We have and , thus y is pr e f e r r ed to x. (b) i = 5%. We have and , thus y is pr e f e r r ed to x. (c) i = 10%. We have and , thus x is pr e f e r r ed to y.
