iii. The market rate of interest is higher than both the coupon rate and the effective rate of interest. We know the effective rate exceeds the coupon rate because the bonds were issued at a discount. Since there was a gain upon retirement of debt on the open market, we know that the current market rate must exceed the effective rate of interest at time of issue.
