Business questions help? :)?

Hello everyone! These are questions I'm having a bit of a problem with and just want to see if I'm either right or wrong about them. If I am wrong, could you explain to me why the answer is different? I want to make sure I know these just in case they show up on the final exam. Thanks a bunch everyone. :)

    Most of your answers are right. Here are the few that I spotted as off:

    5 should be D

    7 should be False. If you purchase a stock through it's IPO, it would not be considered as being sold through the secondary market until you started to trade it.

    9 should be False. It's hard for small businesses to go public.

    10 should be A. Most bonds pay semi-annually.
