    A. 6.90 percent

    Explanation:

    Yield to maturity = [Annual Interest + (Par value - Market Value) / no of year to Maturity ] / [ (Par value - Market Value) / 2]

    0.0734 = [ Annual Interest + (100% - 96%) / 15 ] / [ (100% + 98%) / 2]

    0.0734 = [ Annual Interest + (1.00 - 0.96) / 15 ] / [ (1.00 + 0.98) / 2]

    0.0734 = [ Annual Interest + (0.04) / 15 ] / [ 1.98 / 2]

    0.0734 = [ Annual Interest + 0.0027 ] / 0.99

    0.0734 x 0.99 = Annual Interest + 0.0027

    0.072666 - 0.0027 = Annual Interest

    Annual Interest = 0.069966 = 7% (Rounded off)
