b) What is Rose's basis in the stock?
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?

a) Does Annette recognize gain on the transfer and if yes, how much?
b) What is Landcorp's basis in the land?
