Give reason for your answer. The first priority project is Voyagers Project because it has the highest internal rate of return (44%) which cover the lowest expected rate plus inflation rate (23%). It also does not get minus value on NPV compare with two others. Should SIMSOX fund any of the other projects? Give reason for your answer. SIMSOX should not invest in others projects because the rest projects do not reach the lowest expected rate of return and get minus value on NPV.
