**Answer:**

**A. 6.75%**

**Explanation:**

In this question, we use the Rate formula which is shown in the spreadsheet.

The NPER represents the time period.

Given that,

Present value = $1,021.16

Future value or Face value = $1,000

PMT = 1,000 × 7% ÷ 2 = $35

NPER = 13 years × 2 = 26 years

The formula is shown below:

**= Rate(NPER,PMT,-PV,FV,type) **

The present value come in negative

So, after solving this, the pretax cost of debt is 6.75% ** (3.38% × 2)**

**Answer:**

The ending cash account balance for Apricot Inc is **$8,297.**

**Explanation:**

There are three components in the statement of cash flows:

**Operating activities -** Here, non-cash items applied to deriving the net income based on the accrual basis are adjusted for. Also, the movement in working capital and liabilities are accounted for.**Investing activities** encompass the assets purchased to generate the net income.**Financing activities:** These include activities that are geared towards improving the capital structure of the organization.

In deriving the cash flows at the end of the period, the balances in the activities above are added up, either outflow or inflow. Then the addition is added to the beginning balance of cash flows. This is done below.

Net cash flow provided by operating activities $45,042

Net cash flow used in investing activities ($20,831)

Net cash flow used in financing activities ($27,997)

Beginning cash account balance $12,083

**Ending cash account balance $8,297**

**Answer:**

FV= $772

**Explanation:**

Giving the following information:

Initial investment (PV)= $850

Interest rate (i)= 3.5% = 0.035

Number of periods (n)= 5 years

<u>**To calculate the future value (FV), we need to use the following formula:**</u>

**FV= PV*(1+i)^n**

FV= 650*(1.035^5)

FV= $772
