I is correct because the model assumes a constant growth rate of dividends, and that means each dvd is greater than the prior one. |

I is NOT correct. Direct quote from the notes: "Dividends may fall at a constant rate indefinitely extending in the future..." In this case the formula will still be valid and g will be negative. |
