Question(b)
Thelonger the maturity of the bond selling at a discount, the lower theprice of the bond (Brigham,& Houston, 2012).There is always an inverse relationship that exists between the priceand maturity of the bond that are selling at discount as the abovecalculations shows.
Asthe bond moves towards its maturity, its market price is basicallygetting close to its par value which means that the bonds that has alonger maturity often fluctuates with the changes in market rate(Moyer,McGuigan, Rao, & Kretlow, 2011).
