An investor can buy/sell a call option and a put option with the same strike price and expiration date in order to simulate a standard forward contract.
A synthetic forward contract creates an offsetting forward position by combiningcall and put options with the same strike price and expiration date.
A forward contract is a customizable derivative contract between two parties to purchase or sell an asset on a future date at a defined price. Forward contracts may be customized to include a particular commodity, quantity, and delivery date.
Assume the delivery cost is k and the delivery date is t. When both options have strike price k and exercise date t, a forward contract is formed by purchasing a European call and selling a European put. Under all conditions, this portfolio produces a payout of st -k, where st is the stock price at time t. Assume FO is the forward price. If k=FO, the new forward contract has no value. When the strike price is F0, the price of a call matches the price of a put.
It depend on the country and the place. In certain countries there are certain regulations determining the lowest payment, in other countries the unions plays a big role on determining the minimum salary for the new graduates, or at least they know very well the average salary for the careers they represent. However, the active demand in certain careers plays a big role in determining the average salary. In many cases, it would be possible for you to google it and read about the various stories of the applicants and the people who joined the new jobs.
Some purchase decisions are more important than others and the amount of effort we put into each differs.
Sometimes the decision-making process is done almost automatically; we seem to make snap judgements based on very little information.
-Limited Problem Solving: Usually, it also involves internal and limited external search, few alternatives, simple decision rules on a few attributes, and little post- purchase evaluation. In general, limited decision making involves recognising a problem, for which there are several possible solutions. There is an internal and limited amount of external search.

-Extended Problem Solving (EPS). Is usually initiated by motive that is fairly central to the self-concept, and the eventual decision is perceived to carry a fair degree of risk. The consumer tries to collect as much information as possible, both from memory (internal search) and from outside sources (external research). At this level, the consumer needs a great deal of information to establish a set of criteria on which to judge specific brands and a correspondingly large amount of information concerning each of the brands to be considered.
