Which quantity can be interpreted as the present value of the strike price times the probability that the call option is in the money at expiration?

Gamma

K∙e^(rT)∙N(d2)

Delta

S∙N(d1)

Here, Perfect answer should be K.e^(-rT).N(d2), this can be interpreted as the present value of the strike price times the probability that the call option is in the money at expiration

where,

K = Strike Price of the Option,

N(d2) = standard normal cumulative distribution function,

e = the exponential function to bring the Strike Price to Present value (Continous Compounding)

r = Rate of Interest

T = Time Remaining until expiration

Other Options:

Delta is the degree to which an option price will move given a small change in the underlying stock price

Gamma measures how fast the delta changes for small changes in the underlying stock price. i.e. the delta of the delta

S is the Current Stock Price, we want Strike price to be brought to present value but not current stock price.
