Answer / mahesh kumar bagarti
NPV stands for net present value where as I.R.R stands for
internal rate of return.N.P.V is the difference between
present value of cash inflow and present value of cash outflow
or initial investment.I.R.R is the rate that equates present
value of cash inflow with cash outflow.N.P.V is better
because it takes into consideration the time value of money.

IRR measures the 'max return potential' implied in a
project without considering funding costs (hence the
term 'Internal'). While it is a useful guideline, it fails
in comparison to NPV as the latter incorporates funding
costs as well. NPV will be turn positive only when the IRR
> WACC! Secondly, IRR (the same as CAGR) assumes that the
reinvestment rate of returns is the same as the IRR itself
(that is, it involves circularity. The very reason why we
start with arbitrary numbers to derive the answer when
doing manual calculations).
In general, the order of preference should be NPV >> MIRR
