    Q 91 Ans B:

    The statements specify the credit enhancement ways. In Prefunded bonds some treasury securities are bought which are used to pay the coupon and the par value, since treasury is risk free, prefunded bonds have lesser risk.
    A municipal bond can be insured by third party to make it attractive to the investors.
