You probably should talk about taxes, first. Anyway...Can you do NONE of it? Calculate the interest earned under each scenario. Note: Part of the question makes no sense at all. Are the two five year periods intended to be consecutive or sequential? If they are not back-to-back, then it is very difficult to compare a 5 year investment with a 10 year investment. What happens in one case with the missing five years?!
