linzlinked This is clearly wrong. S&P 500 is free float market capitalisation weighted index. Should be C.
linzlinked Second thought. The return is calculated based on price appreciation rather than income like dividends, so in terms of return, S&P 500 is price return index, and in terms of weighting, its value weighted. A is right then.
NBlanco nice distinction linzlinked, that was a tricky question
