    A. $8

    B. $5.33

    C. $413,33

    D,$400

    Explanation:

    a. bank charge rate = 2%

    Cash advance fee = $400 * 2%=$8

    b) APR = 16%

    one month APR = 400*16% * 1/12 = $5.33

    C) total amount paid = Principal + fee + APR

    =$ (400+8+5.33) = $413.33

    D) No extra charges will apply
