    Answer:

      A.  $14,500

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The van depreciates ($16000 -1000 = $15000 in 5 years, so $3000 per year. It will be assumed to depreciate half that amount in half a year, so will be worth $1500 less than $16000 at the end of the first calendar year. The book value will be $14,500.
