    Hello!

    Here are your answers.

    Calculate the expected return for security j.
    This can be calculated by multiplying the return under each state (kj) by the probability of occurrence of that state (Pi), and then summing those values. In this case, the expected return is:

    0.3*20 + 0.4*5 + ...
