Capital asset pricing model - working with beta, Financial Management

Your research assistant went home early (rock concert related illness) and left you with the following table listing the expected returns, standard deviation, correlation with the market portfolio and beta for three firms your client is considering investing in as well as the market portfolio and the risk-free rate (for reference). 

a. Fill in the missing entries (each is labeled with a capital letter).

b. Suppose that your client already has a well-diversified portfolio. Use the CAPM to determine whether each of the three firms is correctly priced. Would you advise your client to buy stock in any of these firms? Note: you may make these recommendations on the basis of expected returns (without reference to a market price).
