a. Component cost of debt and equity shares assuming that the company does not issue any additional equity shares are:

Cost of debt is 9%.

Cost of equity is:

"Ke = 0.06 + 1.1*(0.12 - 0.06) = 0.126."

b. Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) is:

"WACC = 0.35*(1 - 0.25)*0.09 + 0.65*0.126 = 0.1055."
