10) A company is considering producing some new Gameboy electronic games. Based on past records, management believes that there is a 70 percent chance that each of these will be successful, and a 30 percent chance of failure. Market research may be used to revise these probabilities. In the past, the successful products were predicted to be successful based on market research 90 percent of the time. However, for products that failed, the market research predicted these would be successes 20 percent of the time. If market research is performed for a new product, what is the probability that the product will be successful if the market research indicates a success?

A) 0.10

B) 0.90

C) 0.91

D) 0.63

E) 0.09

11) Which of the following is true about the expected value of perfect information?

C) It is calculated as expected value with perfect information minus maximum EMV.

D) It is the amount charged for marketing research.

E) None of the above
