CJHughes If it gets called on first coupon date, it pays the semi-annual rate of 2.5%. So, bond holders "may receive coupon interest as high as 5% per annum or as low as 2.5% per annum". Technically I feel 'A' is correct, as investors may receive only 2.5% per annum if it happens to get called that year.
go_mez Agree with A, the present date doesn’t specify that you are stand at the begining.
