4. Which one of the following is a source of cash? a) Increase in accounts receivable, b) Decrease in accrued liabilities, c) Decrease in bank loan, d) Increase in retained earnings

1. option c. ​

The value of the stock will be 10 times the initial investment at the time of maturity.

2. Given

future value = \$2500

time N = 5

r = 4.25% compounded semi-annually

Present value = FV/ (1 + r/2)N*2

PV = 2500 / ( 1 + 0.0425/2)^10

PV = \$2025.91

Value of investment is \$2025.91

3. PV = 10000/ (1+r)n

PV = 10000/(1.0678)^10

PV = 10000 / 1.927077

PV= \$5189.21

Present value of 10,000 is \$5189.21

4. Option D .    Increase in retained earnings
