Which of the following is TRUE about RISK & RETURN? O A. Ceteris paribus, higher standard deviations represent lower risk. O B. The terms "systematic" and "diversifiable" risk mean the same thing. O C. In the CAPM model, if the MRP is 8% and the risk-free rate is 2%, then the expected return on the market would be 6%. OD. For a holding period of 7 months, the annualized HPR would be greater than the 7-month HPR.
