Answer #1

Part 1. As there are 2 Options with the same strike price (SP) and stock price can be either higher than SP/ lower than SP/ equal to SP then in that case (Call is in the money/ Put is in the money/ Both options are at the money)

Therefore as above Only one option can be In the Money or At the Money at the same time. Therefore option D is correct.

Part2. When Stock Price increases then Call Option rise in value and Put option drops in Value. Hence Option C is correct.

Part3. Protective Put entails buying stock while hedging the downside risk by buying Put Option. Therfore Option A is the correct answer.

Part 4. Covered Call entails buying Stock and selling Out of the money Calls, thereby to reduce the purchase price and generate extra income while owning stock. Therfore Option D is correct.
