The equivalent NPV and RADR NPV are better selection for Project X. The equivalent NPV and the RADR NPV are higher.

3. Ranking

Plan
NPV
IRR Certainty
Equivalents
X 2 2 1 1
Y 1 1 2 2

Both NPV and IRR have the same rankings. At the same time, making risk adjustments through either certainty equivalents or RADRs resulted in reversing the ranking from the non-risk adjusted
