Answer #1

**Solution 1.>**

Exercise price: $30

Call option price: ?

Put option price: $2.55

Risk-free rate: 6%

Current market price: $28

Time to maturity: 1 year

Let’s plug these values in the put-call parity equation:

C + X/(1+r)^t = P + So

C + 30/(1.06)^1 = 2.55 + 28

**C = $2.2481**

**Solution 2.>**

Exercise price: $45

Call option price: $10.45

Put option price: ?

Risk-free rate: 6%

Current market price: $46

Time to maturity: 1 year

Let’s plug these values in the put-call parity equation:

C + X/(1+r)^t = P + So

10.45 + 45/(1.06)^1 = P + 46

**P = $6.9028**

**Solution 3.>**

Strike Price: $34

Stock Price: $31

** Intrinsic value** = Strike Price - Stock
Price

= $34-$31

**= $3**
