whipp "C" shares are an example of "low-load" fund shares
ontrack We can eliminate all choices except B since low-load funds will charge some sales fee and only B has option 3
Friso Book 5, page 20: Closed end funds may also trade at a premium when investors believe the portfolio securities are undervalued.
