1. Calculate the net profits of each option under the following assumption. Also indicate if the option is ITM, ATM, or OTM.

If the current market price is more than the strike price, the call option is in-the-money (ITM). If the current market price is less than the strike price, the call option is out-of-the-money (OTM). If the current market price is the same as (or close to) the strike price, the call option is at-the-money (ATM)

A put option is in-the-money (ITM) when the strike price is higher than the market price of the underlying asset. A put option is at-the-money (ATM) when the price of the underlying security is equal (or close) to its strike price. A put option is out-of-the-money (OTM) when the price of the underlying security is greater than the strike price.

Strike price of options = \$100
