You are to assume that a firm’s cost of capital is 10%. Using this information, what are reasonable costs of capital for evaluating average-risk projects, high-risk projects, and low-risk projects.

    This is a poorly written question.

    It states that a firm's cost of capital is 10%. That is, it pays 10% for borrowing money.

    Why, then, does the question asks for "reasonable costs of capital" depending upon the risk involved?

    As a borrower, the firm may be willing to pay a higher cost for a low risk investment, such as a mortgage on a building in a thriving market. But, if gambling upon a risky project, the firm's directors may not be willing to borrow money unless at a low cost.

    Please check with your instructor about this question. Also check your text materials, remembering that the question states, "Based on your knowledge about this subject . . .

    10%, 10% and 10% is my answer.

    Regardless of the risk of a project, that is the actual market interest rate for that company, according your statement of the problem. It is the prospective reasonableness (risk/reward) of the PROJECT, not the "reasonable" interest rate (capital cost), that needs to be be evaluated.
