Which project should be accepted if they are mutually exclusive?d.How might a change in the required rate of return produce a conflict between the NPV and IRR rankingsof these two projects? Would this conflict exist if r were 5 percent? (Hint: Plot the NPV profiles.)e.Why does the conflict exist?9-2 Compute the internal rates of return (IRRs) for following capital budgeting projects:Year Project G Project P Project V 0 \$(23,000) \$(48,000) \$(36,000) 1 7,900 0 (10,000) 2 7,900 0 0 3 7,900 0 0 4 7,900 81,000 75,000 Based on IRRs, under what conditions should each project be purchased?9-3 Plasma Blood Services (PBS) is deciding whether to purchase a new blood cleaning machine that isexpected to generate the following cash flows.
