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.
