I found that the definition of Diluted EPS is contradicting. Some said assume that all the convertibles and options should be assumed to exercise at the average price while the others said it is only exercised when it creates dilusive effects. Please share thoughts on this. And there is also another concept called primary EPS which some said to be Diluted EPS (as the second definition) and others said it is same as basic EPS. I am confused.

convertibles are included in diluted EPS when they have a dilutive effect by themself. Options are exercised if exercise price is less than avg. price for the year, options only add shares to the denominator. Primary EPS=Basic EPS

I passed! I did not get a chance to tell you before the exam - but your site was excellent. I will definitely take it next year for Level II.
