    Don't know about Guo, but all-or-nothing are on the syllabus, and one of the sample questions deals with delta-hedging a gap option.

    I'm sorry, I misunderstood the question. You are right, the second part is the payment of u-d whenever X>u, so it is (u-d)*(1-F(u)).

    If 100p% of losses exceed x, is x the 100p th percentile or the 100(1-p)th percentile? After you straighten that out, you'll understand the ASM solution.

    Both of you are ignoring the sum signs.

    if 1^2+2^2=5 and 3^2+4^2=25, does it follow that 1x3+2x4=sqrt(25x5)?

    If losses are X, P=X-d | X>d. In other words, the payment random variable. The letter "P" should've been a giveaway.
