a. discount rate.



b. 90-day Treasury bill rate.



c. five-year Treasury note rate.



d. federal funds rate.




Answers: b



The 90-day Treasury bill rate is used because there is no credit risk, and the maturity is so short that there is no liquidity or market risk. The five-year Treasury also has no credit risk, but if interest rates rise, the market value could decline.
