[i]. Real Time Systems Inc. is considering the development of one of two mutually exclusive new computer models. Each will require a net investment of $5,000. The cash flow figures for each project are shown below:
Period Project A Project B
1 $2,000 $3,000
2 2,500 2,600
3 2,250 2,900
Model B, which will use a new type of laser disk drive, is considered a highrisk project, while Model A is of average risk. Real Time adds 2 percentage points to arrive at a riskadjusted cost of capital when evaluating a highrisk project. The cost of capital used for averagerisk projects is 12 percent. Which of the following statements regarding the NPVs for Models A and B is most correct?
a. NPV_{A} = $380; NPV_{B} = $1,815.
b. NPV_{A} = $197; NPV_{B} = $1,590.
c. NPV_{A} = $380; NPV_{B} = $1,590.
d. NPV_{A} = $5,380; NPV_{B} = $6,590.
e. None of the statements above is correct.
[ii]. Cochran Corporation has a weighted average cost of capital of 11 percent for projects of average risk. Projects of belowaverage risk have a cost of capital of 9 percent, while projects of aboveaverage risk have a cost of capital equal to 13 percent. Projects A and B are mutually exclusive, whereas all other projects are independent. None of the projects will be repeated. The following table summarizes the cash flows, internal rate of return (IRR), and risk of each of the projects.

(The following information applies to the next four problems.)
[MACRS table required]
The president of Real Time Inc. has asked you to evaluate the proposed acquisition of a new computer. The computer's price is $40,000, and it falls into the MACRS 3year class. Purchase of the computer would require an increase in net operating working capital of $2,000. The computer would increase the firm's beforetax revenues by $20,000 per year but would also increase operating costs by $5,000 per year. The computer is expected to be used for 3 years and then be sold for $25,000. The firm's marginal tax rate is 40 percent, and the project's cost of capital is 14 percent.
