Expert's answer

If there are two choices for replacing a punch press and if the basic model has a useful life of 8 years while the deluxe model has a useful life of 12 years, then the most appropriate analysis period for this problem is 24 years, because we can divide it both by 12 and 8.

So, the right answer is c. 24 years.

So, the right answer is c. 24 years.
