      Banker's Acceptance

    • B.

      Certificate of Deposit

    • D.

      Commercial Paper

    Correct Answer
    B. Certificate of Deposit
    Explanation
    Certificate of Deposit (CD) is considered the riskiest money market instrument among the options given. This is because a CD is a time deposit with a fixed maturity date and fixed interest rate, and it cannot be withdrawn before the maturity date without incurring a penalty. Unlike the other options, CDs are not backed by any form of collateral or guarantee. Therefore, if the issuer of the CD defaults or faces financial difficulties, there is a higher risk of losing the invested principal amount.

    Correct Answer
    B. Treasury Bill
    Explanation
    A Treasury Bill is a short-term debt instrument issued by the National Government with a maturity of less than one year. It is used to finance the government's short-term borrowing needs and is considered a safe investment since it is backed by the full faith and credit of the government. Treasury Bills are typically sold at a discount to their face value and do not pay periodic interest like Treasury Notes or Bonds. Instead, investors earn a return by purchasing the bill at a discount and receiving the full face value at maturity.

    • A.

      Preferred Stockholders

    • B.

      Common Stockholders

    • C.

      Bondholders

    • D.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    C. Bondholders
    Explanation
    Bondholders are individuals or entities that have invested in a company's bonds. When a company goes through liquidation, its assets are sold off to repay its debts. Bondholders are given priority in the liquidation process, meaning they are the first to be paid back with the proceeds from the asset sales. This is because bonds are debt instruments, and bondholders are essentially lending money to the company. Therefore, bondholders are the ones who are being paid during a company's liquidation of its assets.

While the central bank plays a crucial role in regulating the overall financial system, its functions are separate from those of the capital market.
