3. If you draw NPV profiles for two mutually exclusive projects on a single graph, and if the profile lines do not cross in the upper right quadrant, then there is no meaningful conflict between the projects—either one dominates the other or neither should be accepted at any positive cost of capital. True or false?

  a. True  b. False4.One important difference between capital budgeting and security analysis is that in security analysis the analyst must generally take the projected cash flows as given rather than something the analyst can influence, whereas firms can often influence the cash flows from projects by making operating changes. True or false?  a. True  b. False

5.Project X has the following cash flows. If the firm’s WACC is 15%, what is Project X’s discounted payback? 

 a. 1.73 years
 b. 2.25 years
 c. 2.66 years
 d. 3.11 years
 e. 3.50 years

6. If S and L were mutually exclusive, both should be accepted. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

7. Project L has the following cash flows, and its cost of capital is 10%. What is L’s MIRR? 

 a. 21.66%
 b. 22.53%
 c. 23.17%
 d. 24.29%
 e. 25.40%

8. If a firm does not have good access to external capital, and if it has many potential projects with high IRRs, it might be reasonable to assume that a project’s cash flows could be reinvested at a rate close to its IRR. However, that situation rarely exists: Firms with good investment opportunities generally do have good access to capital markets. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

9. Given the data in the previous questions, which of the following statements is true?

 a. If Projects SSS and LLL are independent, then according to the IRR decision criterion both should be accepted because both have an IRR that exceeds the cost of capital.
 b. If these projects are mutually exclusive, then according to the IRR decision criterion Project SSS should be accepted because it has the larger IRR.
 c. Both statements are true.

10. If two mutually exclusive projects are being compared, there may be a conflict between the projects’ NPVs and their regular IRRs, but there can be no conflict between the projects’ NPVs and MIRRs. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

11. The inputs used in most capital budgeting analyses are not known with certainty; hence, the results of a quantitative analysis may be quite different from the actual, after-the-fact results. Also, five capital budgeting criteria are commonly used, and each provides a somewhat different bit of information. Therefore, it is rational for a firm to calculate and give some consideration to each of the five criteria. For most decisions, the greatest weight should be given to the NPV, but it would be foolish to ignore the information provided by the other criteria. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

12. Assume that the project’s cost of capital is 12% and analyze the following statement: “Even though Project 2’s IRRs are both greater than the cost of capital, the project should still be rejected because its NPV is negative at the project’s cost of capital, and consequently, the firm’s value will be reduced if it is accepted.” True or false?

  a. True  b. False

13. If the firm accepts projects that have a payback of 3 years or less, Project X should not be accepted. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

14. Managers are supposed to maximize the value of their firms. The net present value (NPV) tells us how much a project contributes to shareholder wealth—the larger the NPV, the more value the project adds; and added value means a higher stock price. Thus, NPV is the best selection criterion. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

15. The cash flows for Projects SSS and LLL are shown below. Each project has a cost of capital equal to 11%. What is SSS’s IRR? 

 a. 12.75%
 b. 13.48%
 c. 14.11%
 d. 15.61%
 e. 16.43%

16. Two important project classifications are expansion of existing products or markets, and expansion into new products or markets. Both types of projects are fairly routine, so projects in either category do not require an elaborate decision process, and the final decision is typically made by lower level management. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

17. If S and L are independent, both should be accepted. True or false?

  a. True  b. False18. The rate at which the NPV profile lines of two mutually exclusive projects cross is called the “crossover rate.” If the cost of capital is greater than the crossover rate, then no conflict will occur because the project with the higher NPV will also have the higher IRR. True or false?  a. True  b. False

19. The NPV and IRR criteria always produce conflicting recommendations for normal, independent projects. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

20. Projects S and L have the following cash flows, and both have an 11% cost of capital. What is S’s NPV? 

 a. $167.06
 b. $172.29
 c. $178.88
 d. $183.19
 e. $185.41

21. The cash flows for Project 2 are shown below. One IRR for Project 2 is 21.08%. What is the other IRR? 

 a. 53.34%
 b. 59.27%
 c. 65.85%
 d. 73.17%
 e. 81.30%

22. Project X has the following cash flows. What is its regular payback? 

 a. 1.73 years
 b. 2.25 years
 c. 2.66 years
 d. 3.11 years
 e. 3.50 years

23. One of the following projects has two IRRs. Which project would that be?

 a. 
 b. 
 c. 

24. The NPV assumes reinvestment at the internal rate of return, while the IRR assumes reinvestment at the WACC. For most firms, assuming reinvestment at the IRR is reasonable, so the NPV is the better decision criterion. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

25. There has been a strong trend in recent years toward the use of the NPV and IRR methods as the primary criteria, and away from the regular payback as the primary criterion for selecting capital budgeting projects. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

26. Analyzing capital expenditure proposals is not costless—benefits can be gained, but analysis does have a cost. For certain types of projects, an extremely detailed analysis may be warranted, while for other projects, simpler procedures are adequate. Accordingly, firms generally categorize projects and then analyze them in each category somewhat differently. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

27. On an NPV profile graph, the vertical axis intercept is equal to the sum of the undiscounted cash inflows minus the project’s cost. True or false?

  a. True  b. False

28.

For an NPV vs. IRR conflict to exist, two conditions must exist: (1) one project must be larger than the other, and (2) the larger project must receive most of its cash flows earlier than the smaller project. True or false?  a. True  b. False
