C. Common size analysis
Explanation
Common size analysis is a technique used in comparative analysis of financial statements. It involves expressing each line item on the financial statement as a percentage of a base item, typically the total assets or total sales. This allows for easy comparison and identification of trends and patterns across different periods or companies. By converting the financial data into percentages, common size analysis eliminates the effect of scale and size, making it easier to identify areas of strengths or weaknesses in a company's financial performance.

A. Low riskier firms
Explanation
A low price to earnings ratio indicates that the stock price is relatively low compared to the company's earnings.

Low riskier firms may have stable financials, strong market position, or a track record of consistent performance, which makes them attractive to investors.
