Default FM/2 practice

Can anyone provide the solution for the following question?

The one-year forward rate for year 2 is 4%. The four-year spot rate is 10%. The expected spot rate at the end of year 2 on a zero-coupon bond maturing at the end of year 4 is 7%. Determine the one-year spot rate.

Two choices: invest for a full 4 years, or keep reinvesting for various terms. Either way, you should have the same amount of money at the end of 4 years.
