There is no point in typing out a full question and expecting to be provided with a full answer – that is not what we are here for!
You must have an answer in the same book in which you found the question and so ask about whatever it is in the answer that you are not clear about and then I will explain.
Obviously everything needed to be able to answer this question is covered in our free lectures. The lectures are a complete free course for Paper FA and cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.
