A put option is an option to sell the underlying asset at thestrike price on maturity. When you write or sell a put option, youare selling someone else the option the sell the underlying assetto you at the strike price on maturity. Lets say you sell the putoption to “A”. Now, A has the option to sell the 100 shares to you@$35 on maturity date. When you sell the option you receive theoption premium of $2.75 per share.

A) In the above example, A will sell thisoption to you only in case the actual stock price is less than thestrike price, so that A buys the 100 shares from the market atlower than strike price and sells to you @$35. Now, you receive 100shares from A and then sell it on the market at a lower price. So,you will have a loss in any case if A decides to exercise theoption. Therefore, Maximum gain will occur only if A does notexercise the option and the gain in that case would be the premiumreceived.

Maximum Gain = Option premium = $2.75 x 100 =$275

B) Maximum potential loss would be when theactual market price of the shares is $0. In that case you purchasefrom A @$35 but [email protected]$35 minus premium received on sellingthe option to A.

Maximum Loss = ($35 x 100) – $275 = $3225
