You can consider and calculate inflow. Answer would be same

But if we consider it as inflow npv by lower discount rate would be negative and npv by higher rate would be positive

Atharv SankliyaSir answer is same the only difference is npv by lower rate is negative So my question is does this npv by lower rate is negative because if cost of debt is 10% the company is paying more to investor as per discount rate of 10 %

As interest rate increases, present value decreases and vice versa. Interest rate lower means PV of outflow is higher.
