Do you think barrier options should be more expensive than plain vanilla options of same characteristics?

Barrier option A ‘knock-out barrier option’ is a call or put option which may only be exercised at maturity if the price of the underlying never hits a pre-agreed barrier price H throughout the life of the option. Symmetrically, a ‘knock-in barrier option’ may only be exercised at maturity if the price of the underlying hits the barrier price H.

(a) Do you think barrier options should be:

(i) more expensive than plain vanilla options of same characteristics?

(ii) less expensive than plain vanilla options of same characteristics?

(iii) more expensive in some cases and less expensive in other cases? (Please specify.)

(b) In this question we consider calls with strike 100 and 1-month maturity. The underlying spot price is

Do you agree with the court that this duty is both a logical and modest extension of physicians’ “traditional” obligation to their patients? Why or why not?

1.Go back to the first legal principle drawn from the Canterbury decision: namely, that physicians have a duty of reasonable disclosure to include therapy options and the dangers potentially involved with each. Do you agree with the court that this duty is both a logical and modest extension of physicians’ “traditional” obligation to their patients? Why or why not? Depending on your answer, are you surprised to learn that some states have opted not to follow the Canterbury court’s patient-oriented standard of informed consent, relying instead on the more conventional approach of measuring the legality of physician disclosure based on what a reasonable physician would have disclosed?

Should Carol be allowed to bring this action? Why or why not?

Assume that you live in a state where heart balm actions can be brought. Dan asks Carol to marry him. Carol says yes. The date is set for the wedding. Two weeks before the wedding, Carol learns that Dan has just married Linda. At the time Dan was engaged to Carol, Carol was already married to Bill, but Dan did not know this. Carol was in the process of divorcing Bill and hoped the divorce would be finalized before her marriage to Dan. Carol wanted to wait until the divorce was final before telling Dan about the prior marriage and divorce. Dan did not learn about any of this until after his marriage to Linda. When Carol’s divorce to Bill became final, she sued Dan. The cause of….

Discuss three of the basic elements of a successful imagery program, including why they are important.

1.   Describe some anecdotal and some experimental evidence supporting the effectiveness of

imagery in improving performance, including evidence relating to the nature of the task and

ability level.

 

2.  Compare and contrast internal imagery and external imagery and their effectiveness.

 

3.   Discuss three of the basic elements of a successful imagery program, including why they are

important.

 

4.  Compare and contrast the different types of imagery including cognitive general, cognitive specific,

motivational specific, motivational general–arousal, and motivational general–mastery.

identify which type or types of lowpass filter have the characteristic described.

Among Butterworth, Chebyshev Type 1, Chebyshev Type 2 and Elliptic filters, identify which type or types of lowpass filter have the characteristic described. (a) Magnitude frequency response in the passband monotonically approaches a slope of zero at zero frequency. (Monotonic means “always moving in thesame direction.” That is, always moving up or always moving down or “not rippling.”) (b) Magnitude frequency response in the stopband monotonically approaches zero as frequency approaches infinity. (c) Fastest transition from passband to stopband for a given filter order. (d) Slowest transition from passband to stopband for a given filter order.

Offer one explanation for the abundance of different G6PD mutations.

If the mutation rate to a new allele is 10 –5, assuming there is no migration, how large must isolated populations be to prevent chance differentiation among them in the frequency of this allele? Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) is a critical enzyme involved in the metabolism of glucose, especially in red blood cells. Deficiencies in the enzyme are the most common human enzyme defect and occur at a high frequency in certain populations of East African children.

a.  Offer one hypothesis for the high incidence of G6PD mutations in East African children.

b.  How would you test your hypothesis further?

c.  Scores of different G6PD mutations affecting en- zyme function have been found in human populations. Offer one explanation for the abundance of different G6PD mutations.

What is the work required in the first compressor per kg of propane?

Propane is to be compressed from 0.4 MPa and 360 K to 4 MPa using a two-stage compressor. An interstage cooler returns the temperature of the propane to 360 K before it enters the second compressor. The intermediate pressure is 1.2 MPa. Both adiabatic compressors have a compressor efficiency of 80%.

(a) What is the work required in the first compressor per kg of propane?

(b) What is the temperature at the exit of the first compressor?

(c) What is the cooling requirement in the interstage cooler per kg of propane?

Did the modified or the unmodified mice learn the location of the platform faster in the first test?

The FOXP2 gene encodes a transcription factor associated with vocal learning in mice, bats, birds, and humans. In humans, loss-ofDigging Into Data Enhanced Spatial Learning Ability in Mice with an Autism Mutation Autism is a neurobiological disorder with a range of symptoms that include impaired social interactions and stereotyped patterns of behavior such as hand-flapping or rocking. A relatively high proportion of autistic people—around 10 percent—have an extraordinary skill or talent such as greatly enhanced memory. Mutations in neuroligin 3, an adhesion protein (Section 3.3) that connects brain cells to one another, have been associated with autism. One mutation changes amino acid 451 from arginine to cysteine. Mouse and human neuroligin 3 are very similar. In 2007, Katsuhiko Tabuchi and his colleagues genetically modified mice to carry the….

research the following situation concerning Owen and Lisa Cordoncillo.

Your supervisor has asked you to research the following situation concerning Owen and Lisa Cordoncillo. Owen and Lisa are brother and sister. In May 2019, Owen and Lisa exchange land they both held separately for investment. Lisa gives up a 2 acre property in Texas with an adjusted basis of $2,000 and a fair market value of $6,000. In return for this property, Lisa receives from Owen a 1 acre property in Arkansas with a fair market value of $5,500 and cash of $500 cash of $500.. Owen’s adjusted basis in the land he exchanges is $2,500. In March 2020, Owen sells the Texas land to a third party for $5,800.
