• A.

Policy of capital structure

• B.

Policy of dividends

• C.

• D.

D. All of above
Explanation
The correct answer is "all of above". In weighted average cost of capital (WACC), a company can affect its capital cost through various policies. The policy of capital structure refers to the way a company finances its operations through a combination of debt and equity. By adjusting the proportion of debt and equity, a company can influence its overall cost of capital. The policy of dividends relates to the distribution of profits to shareholders. A company that pays higher dividends may attract more investors, potentially affecting its cost of capital. Finally, the policy of investment refers to the allocation of funds towards different projects. By selecting projects with different risk levels, a company can impact its overall cost of capital.

### Risk associated with project and way considered by well diversified stockholder is classified as

• A.

Expected risk

• B.

Beta risk

• C.

Industry risk

• D.

Returning risk

B. Beta risk
Explanation
Beta risk refers to the risk associated with a specific stock or investment in relation to the overall market. Well-diversified stockholders consider beta risk as they analyze the volatility of a particular stock compared to the broader market. Beta measures the stock's sensitivity to market movements, indicating how much the stock's value is likely to fluctuate in relation to the market. A higher beta indicates greater volatility and risk, while a lower beta suggests less risk. Therefore, beta risk is the appropriate classification for the risk associated with a project that is considered by well-diversified stockholders.
