Look at the cash flows for projects F and G. The cost of capital was assumed to be 10%. Assume that the forecasted cash flows for the projects of this type are overstated by 8% on average. That is the forecast for each cash flow from each project should be reduced by 8%. But a lazy financial manager unwilling to take the time to argue with the projects sponsors instructs them to use a discount rate of 18%.
What are the projects true NPV
What are the NPV's at the 18% discount rate
Are there any circumstances in which the 18% discount rate would give the correct NPV's?

Cash Flows
Project c0 c1 c2 c3 c4 c5 ETC IRR% NPV at 10%
F -9000 6000 5000 4000 0 0 ... 33 3592
G -9000 1800 1800 1800 1800 1800 ... 20 9000
H -6000 1200 1200 1200 1200 ... 20 6000
