Answer #1

Answer 1:

To compare both the options, we need to calculate the PV value of both.

PV of Option 1:

PV of Annuity = Amount * (1 - (1+R)^(-n))/R

Where, R is the discount rate (2.8%) and n is number of years (25 years). Putting the values in the formula:

= $50,000 * (1 - (1.028^(-25))/0.028

= $890,382

PV of option 2:

The other option is to get $875,000 in lumpsum today.

Clearly, we should choose option 1 as it has greater PV.

The gain we make by choosing option 1 is:

$890,382 - $875,000 = $15,382.
