Answer #1

**Answer :
buy the call,buy a bond,write the put,sell stock**

For call option:

Current price of stock = $34

Call strike price = $32

for this we wiil excercise the call option since strike price is less than current price.

Intrinsic value = $34 - $32 = 2

For put option

Current price of stock = $34

Put strike price = $32

for this we wiil not excercise the call option since strike price is less than current price.

Intrinsic value = 0

So we will write the put option.

Hence,

**Strategy is Buy the call,Buy a bond,Write the put,sell
stock to maximize portfolio profits.**
