A:

B. the variance of the market.

The general idea behind capital asset pricing model (CAPM) is that investors need to be compensated in two ways: time value of money and risk. The time value of money is represented by the risk-free (rf) rate in the formula and compensates the investors for placing money in any investment over a period of time. The other half of the formula represents risk and calculates the amount of compensation the investor needs for taking on additional risk. This is calculated by taking a risk measure (beta) that compares the returns of the asset to the market over a period of time and to the market premium (Rm-rf). Beta is the the covariance between the stock and the market divided by the variance of the market.

Correct answer: D. the stock's correlation with the other securities in the portfolio.
