A:

The amount received from the currency option hedge (after considering the premium paid) is $325,500.

This is calculated by taking the 500,000 Australian dollars, multiplying it by the spot rate of $0.67, and then subtracting the cost of the options ($0.02 * 500,000 = 10,000).

500,000 * 0.67 - 10,000 = 325,500.
