2.    A stock's present value is 50. Assume that the price will increase by 15% or drop by 10% during the next year. The risk free interest rate is 3% per year.

3.    A stock's present value is 60. The exercise price is 60. The risk-free interest rate is 3% per year. Annual volatility is 40% and time to maturity is two years. Draw a binomial tree using two steps (2 years) and calculate the value of a call option and a put option using the binomial model.
