a. The project should definitely be accepted because its expected return (before any risk adjustments) is greater than its required return.
b. The project should definitely be rejected because its expected return (before risk adjustment) is less than its required return.
c. Riskier-than-average projects should have their expected returns increased to reflect their higher risk. Clearly, this would make the project acceptable regardless of the amount of the adjustment.
d. The accept/reject decision depends on the firm's risk-adjustment policy. If Norris' policy is to increase the required return on a riskier-than-average project to 3% over rs, then it should reject the project.
e. Capital budgeting projects should be evaluated solely on the basis of their total risk. Thus, insufficient information has been provided to make the accept/reject decision.
