Calculate the Black- Scholes value for a European-style call option with an exercise price of \$70.b. What would be the price of a 91-day European-style put option on ARB stock having the same exercise price?c. Calculate the change in the call option”s value that would occur if ARB”s management suddenly decided to suspend dividend payments and this action had no effect on the price of the company”s stock.d.
