Let's talk about your first equation: If you exercised your option early, you got this payoff. But if you are a rational investor you'd realize that this is less than what you would get if you would just sell your option itself. i.e. the payoff at time t will be more than S(t)-K because the option is worth more than that as it also has some time value. so ...

If $PV_{t, T}(\text{Divs}) \ge K\big(1-e^{-r(T-t)}\big)$, since $P_{Eur}(S_t, K, T-t) >0$, the identity \begin{align*} C_{Eur}(S_t, K, T-t) = P_{Eur}(S_t, K, T-t) + (S_t-K) -PV_{t, T}(\text{Divs}) +K\big(1-e^{-r(T-t)}\big), \end{align*} implies that \begin{align*} C_{Eur}(S_t, K, T-t) > (S_t-K). \end{align*} That is, it is not rationale to exercise the ...

Let $\{X_t \mid t \ge 0\}$ be the foreign exchange rate rate from $£$ to $\$$. Moreover, let$C(X_0, K, T)$and$P(X_0, K, T)$be the prices of the respective call and put options with strike$K$and maturity$T. Then \begin{align*} \frac{1}{X_0}P(X_0,\, K,\, T) = K C\left(\frac{1}{X_0},\, \frac{1}{K},\, T \right). \end{align*} Based on the given condition, ... 1 What a difficult problem. The first line gave165 e^{-rt} -3 S e^{-dt} = 15$[since 50+55+60 = 165]. In the second line we want to evaluate$110 e^{-rt} -2 S e^{-dt} \$. We notice that this is exactly two thirds of the left side of the above, because 110 is two thirds of 165 and 2 is two thirds of 3. So we take two thirds of the right hand side of the first ...
