      A period in which investment prices rises and optimism

    • C.

      It must occur within six months of the year

    • D.

      It occurs when unemployment is low and inflation is slowing down

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. None of the above
    Explanation
    The given answer, "None of the above," is correct because all of the statements listed are incorrect on a Bear Market. In a bear market, the broader market experiences a period of negative returns, not positive returns. Investment prices decline, and pessimism prevails instead of optimism. There is no requirement for a bear market to occur within six months of the year. Additionally, low unemployment and slowing inflation are characteristics of a healthy economy, not a bear market.
