______

Question 1:

Answer is \$312,750. (which is Option C)

_____

Explanation:

The amount to be capitalized is calculated as below:

Amount to be Capitalized = Patent + Trademark + Purchase of MRI = 122,500 + 27,500 + 162,750 = \$312,750

Research and development costs and marketing costs are not capitalized. These costs will be expensed as they are incurred. As such the total value of capitalized costs will include the costs of patent, trademark and purchase of MRI.
