(solved)A vice president of marketing proposes a new program to significantly increase product sales by 250,000 units per year throughout the 1998-2004…. . . . .

Unit Price  $20.00 $20.60 $21.00 $21.15 $21.25 $21.25 $21.00 The SG&A expenditure is estimated at $1.25 million in 1998, and it will increase by 3 percent per year during the six-year period. A corporate tax of 40 percent must be paid for any marginal income. There is an interest charge during this period, and the company’s weighted average cost of capital (WACC) is 8 percent.            If the company’s hurdle rate for this type of investment is 25 percent, and the NPV (Net Present Value) for the proposed marketing initiative is negative at that hurdle rate of 0.25, why would you not recommend the marketing initiative be approved?

Read each of the excerpts from The Awakening. [Robert] never assumed this series-comic tone when alone with Mrs. Pontellier. She never knew precisely what to make of it; at that moment it was impossible for her to guess how much of it was jest and what proportion was earnest. It was understood that he had often spoken words of love to Madame Ratignolle, without any thought of being take seriously. *** During his oblivious attention [Robert] once quietly rested his head against Mrs. Pontellier’s arm. As gently she repulsed him. Once again he repeated the offense. She could not but believe it to be thoughtlessness on his part; yet that was no reason she should submit to it. He offered no apology. Which best explains how these two scenes from chapter 5 contribute to the novel’s plot development? They contribute to the exposition by providing background information on Robert’s previous relationships with Madame Ratignolle and Mrs. Pontellier. They contribute to the rising action by demonstrating the different behaviors Robert uses with Madame Ratignolle and Mrs. Pontellier. They contribute to the resolution by presenting a solution to the central problem taking place between Robert, Madame Ratignolle, and Mrs. Pontellier. They contribute to the falling action by restoring a sense of harmony to the friendship between Robert, Madame Ratignolle, and Mrs. Pontellier.
