    A:

    Assuming the commission charged on both buying and selling

    Commission = 2%

    Number os shares = 200

    Rate of buying = $22.35

    Rate of selling = $31.76

    Amount for buying = 22.35*200 = 4470

    After commission amount needed to buy 200 shares = 4470 + 2% of 4470 = $4559.4

    Total amount for selling 200 shares = 200*31.76 = 6352

    Amount received after commision = 6352 - 2% of 6352 = 6224.96

    Amount earned by Jeff in this transcations = 6224.96-4559.4 = $1665.56
