A firm is considering investing in one of the three mutually exclusive projects E, F, G. The firms cost of capital, r, is 15% and the risk-free rate, Rf, is 10%. The firm gathered the basic cash flow and risk index data for the project, as shown below.

Initial Investment CF0 E $15,000 F $11,000 G$19,000

Year Cash Inflows

1 $6,000 $6,000 $4,000

3 6,000 5,000 8,000

4 6,000 2,000 12,000

Risk Index (RIj) 1.80 1.00 0.60

A.) Find the net present value of each project using the firms cost of capital. Which project is preferred in this situation?
