dhiru Why not II ?
dhiru I guess, probably because II does not contribute to market completeness
bobert Market Completeness: A complete market is a market in which any and all identifiable payoffs can be obtained by trading the securities available in the market.

Given the above statement, if you can find an arbitrage opportunity, I would consider that a payoff, and that is done by trading securities. Why would that not be an answer then?
aakash1108 Offering Aribtrage Opportunities is not an "Efficient Market". If the market is not Efficient, it is not complete.

Arbitrage Opportunities is against EMH.
group You are right Aakash, offering arbitrage opportunities is not an Efficient Market and if the market is not efficient it is not complete...
