[A]A bond with a fixed interest rate and has better yield than varying interest rate bond

[B]A bond with a fixed interest rate and has lower yield than varying interest rate bond

[C]A bond with a varying interest rate and has better yield than fixed interest rate bond

[D]A bond with a varying interest rate and has lower yield than fixed interest rate bond
