By subtracting the required increase in current assets and increase in current liabilities, we can determine the change in net working capital.

    Correct Answer
    C. Opportunity costs
    Explanation
    Opportunity costs refer to the potential benefits or profits that a company foregoes when it chooses to use its owned asset for a particular project instead of using it for an alternative project or opportunity. These costs represent the value of the best alternative that is forgone. In this case, the cash flows that could be generated from the owned asset but are not used in the project represent the opportunity costs, as the company is missing out on the potential benefits that could have been obtained by utilizing the asset differently.

    Explanation
    The cost of capital in capital budgeting refers to the rate of return that a company must earn on its investments in order to satisfy its shareholders and lenders. It is calculated by taking into account the cost of debt and equity, which are the two main sources of financing for a company. The cost of debt is the interest rate that the company pays on its borrowed funds, while the cost of equity represents the return that shareholders expect to receive on their investment. By considering both the cost of debt and equity, the company can determine the appropriate discount rate to use when evaluating potential investment projects.

By considering externalities, economists aim to assess the full social and economic costs and benefits of a project, beyond just the direct impacts on the company or individuals involved.
