Owing to a cash shortage, the company has a policy that it will not undertake any investment unless it has a payback period of less than three years. The company is unwilling to undertake more than two investment projects. The following data apply to the alternatives:

    Investment Initial Cost Expected Returns
    A $100,000 $30,000 per year for 5 years
    B 50,000 25,000 per year for 6 years

    D 20,000 7,000 per year for 6 years
    E 10,000 3,500 per year for 3 years

    Required:

    Using the payback method, screen out any investment project that fails to meet the company's payback period requirement.
    Using the net present value method, determine which of the remaining projects the company should undertake, keeping in mind the capital rationing constraint.
