correct answer is a)
For equity investments, the total return is:
Capital appreciation + dividends received
the example, the capital appreciation is $750 ($10,750-$10,000),
$250 ($1.00 multiplied by 250 shares), for a
total gain of $1,000. You then divide your total
($1,000) by the initial investment ($10,000)
for a total return
