    Net present value = $3,749

    so correct option is $3,749

    Explanation:

    given data

    Present value of cash outflow = $40,500

    annual cash inflow = $12,100

    useful life = 4 years

    rate on return = 12 %

    present value of an annuity = $1

    to find out

    net present value

    solution

    we know here Present value annuity factor @12% for 4 years is given as

    Present value annuity factor @12% for 4 years = 3.0373

    so we get here Present value of cash inflow that is express as

    Present value of cash inflow = Annual cash flow * Present value annuity ... 1

    put here value we get

    Present value of cash inflow = $12,100 * 3.0373

    Present value of cash inflow = $36,751

    so now we get Net present value that is express as

    Net present value = Present value of cash outflow - Present value of cash inflow ... 2

    put here value we get

    Net present value = $40,500 - $36,751

    Net present value = $3,749

    so correct option is $3,749
