Answer #1

Hello,

Here is the solution -

a) Payoff = initial option price – MAX ( 0 , underlying price – strike price ) = $5 - MAX(0,$36 -$31) = $5 - $5 = 0 . Hence there is no profit no loss

b) Payoff = initial option price – MAX ( 0 , underlying price – strike price ) = $5 - MAX(0,$25 -$31) = $5 - $0 = $5 Hence there is profit of $5

c) Payoff digram -

d)

The red line is the profit line

Th blue line is the payoff line
