IntroxxxiText correction: Errors in Answers to Assessment Test
The answer to Question 2 should be C., not B. The explanation is correct as written.

Under Net present value, the fifth sentence:
"Each period's resulting sum in present-day dollars is added together, and that sum is then subtracted from the initial investment to come up with an overall value for the project." is in error. It should read:

"Each period's resulting sum in present-day dollars is added together. The initial investment is subtracted from that sum to come up with an overall value for the project."

The Risk Score of Risk C is miscalculated. 0.8 × 0.1 = 0.08, not 0.8 as given in the table.
