Text Solution for Question #2 is below

CAGR is the rate at which the EPS has grown.
Please see the timeline below

Easily we can solve this with the financial calculator
So, the number of periods from 2002 to 2008 is equal to 6, therefore N = 6
The parameters of TVM are :
FV = -\$14; PV = \$5; PMT = 0; N=6; I/Y =?
CPT -> I/Y =>I/Y = 18.72%
So, the EPS has grown at an average rate of 18.72% for the 6 years.

Note that you will get option A as the answer when you mistakenly take n = 7, so ensure that you input correct data.
You will get error in your calculator, when you dont take PV and FV values having opposite sign.
