  1. Answer:

    The amount of maximum net loss is $100

    Explanation:

    The butterfly spread comprise of buying 100 options with the strike price of $60 and $70 and the selling 200 options with the strike price of $65.

    The maximum loss is when the strike price is less than $60 or be greater than $70. The aggregate payoffs from the options will amount to $0.

    The cost of setting up the butterfly spread is:

    = 11 × 100 + 18  × 100 – 14  × 200

    = $100

    Therefore,the net loss will be $100
