Investment ROI is clearly distinct from Equity (ROE). Investment could mean more than just equity, only B is right "all the time." C would be right if you knew that all investments were equity but in general that's not true. |

ROA is the same as ROI. |

Think about how acquiring assets for the firm is an investing activity in the cash flow statement. Therefore the assets of the company are the company's "investment" |
