LRS24 As the stock price increases the call option becomes relatively more in the money and thus delta increases also towards 1.
bmeisner Yeah II is of course right. Delta is increasing in share price.
Smiley225 Also had II as correct. Deeper in the money, delta moves towards 1.
jhmorris The given answer is correct because the two statements do not make any reference to the moneyness of the options, rather the value of the underlying asset. In this case, it's saying that a call option on an asset valued at $100 would have gamma/delta changes that are greater than an asset valued at $25, which would be incorrect.
