    The correct answer is $5.15.

    Explanation:

    Preference Dividend = Shares * Par Value Of Per Share * Cumulative Rate%

    = 52,000 * $100 * 5%

    = $260,000

    Common Shares Equivalent From Stock Option = 1 : Market Price Of Common Stock Average Per Share * Farewell Granted Stock On Jan. 1 * Right To Buy Share

    = 1 : $34 * 14,000 * 20

    = 8,235.29

    Calculation Farewell Diluted Earning Per Share = Net Income - Preference Dividend : (Common Shares Equivalent From Stock Option+Common Shares)

    =2,900,000-260,000 : ($8,235.29 + 504,000)

    =2,640,000 : 512,235.29

    = $5.15
