A:

A. 8.0%

B. 22.2%

C. 9.3%

D. 12.5%






Correct answer: D

"A" divides 1-minus-tax-rate by the tax-exempt yield, instead of vice versa, and the sloppy mathematician will not notice the order-of-magnitude problem and will read "8" as "8%". "B" divides the tax-exempt yield by the tax rate, not 1-minus-tax-rate. "C" is just a guess.
