The current price of LC Corporation stock is \$20. In each of the next three years, this stock price can either go up by 12% or go down by 4%. LC stock pays no dividends. The one-year risk-free interest rate is 6% and will remain constant.

Note: Risk-neutral probabilities are constant in this case, you just need to compute them in one period.

a) 4.05
b) 4.29
c) 3.60
