Please view attachment for Project A & B

Singleton has decided to evaluate the riskier project at 12% rate and the less risky project at 10% rate.

a. What is the expected value of the annual net cash flows from each project?
What is the coefficient of variation (CVnpv)?

b. What is the risk-adjusted NPV of each project?
