Answer ALL questions in all the THREE TASKS given below

TASK  1:

Mary has been offered a retirement package from her work as a flight attendant with Qantas. Her long-term goal has been to buy a day-spa resort on the central coast of New South Wales with her sister Martha, who is a marketing consultant.  Mary and Martha do up a business plan. They find an old yet suitable building at Nelson Bay which is on the market for sale. With their husbands (John who is a builder and James who is a plumber) they decide to sell their homes in the Sydney CBD for a fortune and purchase the building to start their day-spa.  They think the potential for the business venture is enormous, but expect that additional capital will be required over the next five years for their dreams to be realised.
