Expert Answer

Step 1

Hi. Since there is no information given regarding the beta of stock, we are randomly assuming the beta as 1.40. Kindly replace with the original beta values given.

Step 2

Calculation of Portfolio Weights:

The weight of stock is 70.71% and the weight of risk-free asset is 29.29%.
