The inflated cost stream for alternative B is \$10,000 for year 1, \$12,000 for year 2, \$10,000 for year 3, \$9,000 for year 4, and \$9,000 for year 5. Assume that the cost of capital is 12%. Which alternative would you select? At which point in time will the selected alternative assume a point of preference over the other (i.e, break-even point)?
