           c) What is Rose’s holding period in the stock?

           d) What is Flower’s basis in the land?

           e) What is Flower’s holding period for the land?

           f) Would your answer to parts (b) and (d) change (and if so how) if the fair market value of the land were $50 and Rose’s basis was $75?

           g) Would the answer to part (c) change if instead of transferring land Rose transferred inventory?

           b) What is Rose’s basis in Flower?

           c) What is Flower’s basis in the land?
