There are 24 T/F and Multiple Choice Questions of Corporate Finance.

Which could not find online, so I need professional to finish them

Such as:

1. Sensitivity and scenario analysis aid the capital budgeting decision process by changing the underlying assumptions on which the decision is based.

2. In the accounting break-even the EAC is used to allocate the initial investment at its opportunity cost over the life of the project.

Read the questions (TF and Multiple Choice Questions.docx) first, before you bid.

Make sure you have confidence to do it well.

After I submit the answers, I will get the grade;

if the grade is lower than 70%, I will ask for refund.
