    The answer is $300 gain.

    Explanation:

    Operations:

    Short 100 shares of ABC at $35 each = 100 * 35 = + $3,500 Buy 1 ABC Jul 35 Call @ $3 (one call equals to 100 shares) = 100 * (3) = $ (300), accumulated = + 3,500 - 300 = + 3,200 Closes the option contract at $1 = 100 * 1 = + $100, accumulated = + 3,200 + 100 = + 3,300 Buys the stock at the current market price (buys 100 stock @ $30 each) = 100 * (30) = $ (3,000), accumulated = + 3,300 - 3,000 = + $300.
