An;investment project for which the net present value is $300 would result in;which of the following conclusions?;A.;The net present value is too;small, the project should be rejected.;B.;The rate of return of the;investment project is greater than the required rate of return.;C.The;net present value method is not suitable for evaluating this project, the;internal rate of return method should be used.;DThe;investment project should only be accepted if net present value is zero, a;positive net present value.;indicates an error in the estimates associated with the analysis of this;investment.;20. In capital budgeting, what will be the effect;on the following if there is an increase in the working capital;needed for a project?;A.;Option A;B.;Option B;C.;Option C;D.;Option D;E.;Option E;21.;The capital budgeting method that;recognizes the time value of money by discounting cash flows over the life of;the project, using the company's required rate of return as the discount rate;is called the;A.;simple rate of return method.;B.;the net present value method.;C.;the internal rate of return;method.;D.;the payback method.;22.;The internal rate of return of an investment;project is the;A.;discount rate that results in a;zero net present value for the project.;B.;minimum acceptable rate of return.;C.;weighted average rate of return;generated by internal funds.;D.;company's cost of capital.;23.;If an investment has a project profitability index;of 0.15, then the;A.;project's internal rate of return;is 15%.;B.;discount rate is greater than the;project's internal rate of return.;C.;net present value of the project;is positive.;D.;the discount rate is 15%.;24. If;investment A has a payback period of 3 years and investment B has a payback;period of 4 years, then;A.;A has a higher net present value;than B.;B.;A has a lower net present value;than B.;C.;A and B have the same net present;value.;D the;relation between investment A's net present value and investment B's net;present value cannot be. determined from the given information.;25.;Which one of the following statements about the;payback method of capital budgeting is correct?;A.;The payback method does not;consider the time value of money.;B.;The payback method considers cash;flows after the payback has been reached.;C.;The payback method uses discounted;cash flow techniques.;D.;The payback method will lead to;the same decision as other methods of capital budgeting.;26.;The length of time required to recover the initial;cash outlay for a project is determined by using the;A.;discounted cash flow method.;B.;the payback method.;C.;the net present value method.;D.;the simple rate of return method.;27.
