    Riham has this. I dunno what MSC is thinking that the face value of the bond does not determine its value. The value of a bond is the PV of its coupons and its face value where the discount rate properly accounts for risk.

    1. The price of a bond is determined by the market, based on the attractiveness of the interest rate (coupon) and the creditworthiness of the bond issuer. A is false because it doesn't take the coupon into account. C and E are false because face value is not a factor at all. I suppose D could be true, if by "value" they mean attractiveness compared to other bonds

    2. All answers are true.

    3. Zeros (zero-coupon bonds). Instead of paying an interest rate, they offer a capital gain at the end of the term.
