Option 1: $12,000 in 5 years at 6 percent interest.

Option 2: $15,000 in 2 years at 9 percent interest.

Option 3: $15,000 today. No strings attached.

Option4: $5,000 each year for 2 years at 7 percent interest compounded semiannually.

Answer #1

We will find the present value of all options options which has highest present value that investment should be preferred

Option 1) 12000 in 5 years at interest of 6%

P.v = f.v/(1+r)^n

= 12000/(1.06)^5 = 8967

Option 2) 15000 in 2 years at 9% interest

P.v = 15000/(1.09)^2 = 12625

Option 3) 15000 today so p.v is 15000

Option 4) 5000 for 2 years at 7% compounding semi annually

Interest per period is 7/2 = 3.5%

P.v = 5000/(1.035)^2 + 5000/(1.035)^4

= 9024

So third option has maximum value so it should be taken
