A. An amount equal to or greater than $8 million and less than $10 millionB. An amount equal to or greater than $10 million and less than $12 millionC. An amount equal to or greater than $12 million and less than $14 millionD. An amount less than $6 million or an amount that is equal to or greater than $14 millionE. The question can not be answered because project D, project E, or both projects (D and E) have cash flows that are not conventional(Spring 2010, quiz 4, question 1)(Fall 2010, quiz 3, question 7)The value created by pursuing a project is its NPV, so the most value that can be created would be the aggregate NPV of all projects with positive NPV.Among projects A, B, and C, projects A and C have positive NPV, so pursuing each of them would increase the amount of value created. Therefore, each should be undertaken. The NPVs of projects D and E must be computed.NPV (D) = [-1.1] + [9.0/1.12] + [7.0/1.122] + [-7.0/1.123] + [-9.0/1.124] = 1.8Project D: npv(12,-1.1,{9.0,7.0,-7.0,-9.0}) $1.8Project D has a positive NPV, so pursuing it would increase the amount of value created, so it should be undertaken.NPV (E) = [-8.1] + [1.0/1.14] + [2.0/1.142] + [3.0/1.143] + [4.0/1.144] = -1.3Project E: npv(14,-8.1,{1.0,2.0,3.0,4.0}) -$1.3Project E has a negative NPV, so pursuing it would decrease the amount of value created, so it should not be undertaken.Among all 5 projects, Central Concrete should pursue projects A, C, and DValue created by pursuing projects with positive NPV (in $ millions) is the sum of their NPVs= 3.1 + 9.7 + 1.8 = 14.6
