QUESTION
Word Limit: 2000 words
In 1982 Graham Jones purchased eight hectares of land for a strawberry farm at a cost of $320,000. By 1989 the plantation was well established and producing strawberries of good quality and deriving reasonable profits. As a result, on 1 October 1989 Graham bought another two hectares of land for $40,000. Costs associated with the purchase included stamp duty of $800 and legal fees of $1,600.
In 1997 the crop was exceptionally poor, coupled with this, customs restrictions were altered, allowing greater quantities of strawberries to be imported. These conditions precipitated financial difficulties and Graham decided to sell the land. Attempts to sell the land as a whole were unsuccessful, although one agent did offer $400,000. Graham therefore decided to sell the land by subdivision.
After rezoning and gaining council approval in June 1999, Graham spent $160,000 on the subdivision in October and November 1999 and finally sold the land for $700,000 in July 2011 to a local builder. Although the contract of sale was dated 1 July 2011, settlement was not effected until 12 October 2011.
The contract provided that half of the purchase money would be payable upon settlement and the balance on 31 March 2012. The outstanding balance would accrue interest at 10% pa. Costs of disposal including agent’s commission of $12,000 and legal fees of $2,400.
Advise Graham Jones on the tax implications on the above transaction for the 2011/12 tax year

QUESTION
1. List the three fundamental security properties and for each give an
example of a failure.
2. If the useful life of DES was about 20 years (19771999), how long
do you predict the useful life of AES to be? Justify your answer.
3. Security decisionmaking should be based on rational thinking and
sound judgement. In this context critique five security design principles
with suitable examples.
4. The HTTP protocol is by definition stateless, meaning that it has no
mechanism for “remembering” data from one interaction to the next. (a)
Suggest a means by which you can preserve state between
two HTTP calls. For example, you may send the user a page of books and
prices matching a user’s query, and you want to avoid having to look up
the price of each book again once the user chooses one to purchase. (b)
Suggest a means by which you can preserve some notion of
state between two web accesses many days apart. For example, the user
may prefer prices quoted in euros instead of dollars, and you want to
present prices in the preferred currency next time without asking
the user.
5. Why is a firewall a good place to implement a VPN? Why
not implement it at the actual server(s) being accessed?
1. (Vectors) The vectors a, b and c are given by a = (−2,3,1), b = (0,2,4) and c = (3,−1,−2).
(i) Sketch the vectors a, b and c, all on the same set of xyzaxes.
(ii) A force of 12 newtons acts in the direction of c. Find the force vector F. (Hint: start with a unit vector.)

Instructions: Answer the following questions. Show all your working.
Submit your working in (neat) handwritten form (do not type up your solutions).
It is OK to discuss these questions with other students, but the written version of this Problem Solv

Use the method of steepest descents to derive the full asymptotic expansion of I
in the limit e ! 0.
You will have to treat the cases s > 0 and s < 0 separately, although much of the working is the
same for each.
