14) Parappapa is considering an eight-year expansion project that requires an initial investment of $423,000 for the purchase of a new capital asset

Hello,
I'm having trouble with questions 16 through 20 in the attached word document. My answers are 16)c, 17)b, 18)b, 19)d, 20)a.
However I state that with a lot of uncertainty.
Could you please help, or point me towards some resources (documents) with similar problems (about the "cost of capital") and their solutions.
Thank you,
Regards,
Dany
