1. Call option, X=60
2. Put option, X=65
3. Call option, X=65
4. Put option, X=70

a). Call option payoff = max(stock price - strike price, 0) = max(63-60,0) = 3

Loss = payoff - premium = 3-3.40 = -0.40

b). Put option payoff = max(strike price - stock price, 0) = (65-63) = 2

Loss = payoff - premium = 2 - 2.56 = 0.56

c). Call option payoff = max(stock price - strike price, 0) = max(63-65,0) = 0

Loss = payoff - premium = 0-2.25 = -2.25

d). Put option payoff = max(strike price - stock price, 0) = (70-63) = 7

Profit = payoff - premium = 7 - 3.67 = 3.33
