The correct option is "d"

when you are expecting the market to increase, so you should buy a portfolio whose beta with the market is high. The portfolio with 1.9beta means that if the market increases by 1 then the portfolio will increase by 1.9times.

The correct option is "c"

Net Present value = Present value of cash flow to be received - Initial Investment

= 4000 - 5000

= -1000

it shows that the investment is more than what the project will produce.
