a) What is the significance of Intrinsic Value in options premiums?

-> Intrinsic value is the part of the premium that represents the “real” value of the option if it were exercised immediately. For call options, it’s the difference between the market price and the strike price (if positive). For put options, it’s the difference between the strike price and the market price (if positive). Intrinsic value can never be less than 0.

b) How does Time Value impact options premiums?

-> Time value is the portion of the premium that reflects the potential for the option to gain additional value before expiration. It decreases as the option approaches its expiration date, affecting the overall premium.
