A customer performs the following transactions when DEF is trading at $54.50 per share:- Purchases 1 DEF July 55 call for 4- Purchases 1 DEF July 60 put for 6The market price of DEF then moves to $52.50 per share.

[B]The customer will have a loss of $250.
[C]The customer will have a gain of $800.
[D]The customer will have a loss of $800.
The customer spends a total of $1,000 in buying the two option contracts (long combination with $400 out of pocket for the call and $600 out of pocket for the put). The customer then closes the put for the "in the money" amount. The strike price is 60, and the market is currently $52.50, so the in-the-money amount is $7.50 per share, or $750. If the call expires, then we have $1,000 out of pocket and $750 into pocket, leaving us with $250 in losses.
