What might be the savings goal for a person who buys a five-year CD paying 4.67 percent instead of an 18-month savings certificate paying 3.29 percent?

i just do not get this

This is not my field, but I'll give you some possible ideas.

You are describing someone who is willing to have his money tied up for a longer period of time (a 5-yr CD) for a higher rate of interest, not a person who wants a faster turnaround for a lower rate of interest. Therefore, this person might be --

**a person who will retire in 5-6 years.
**a person who has a child who will enter college in 5-6 years.
**a person who plans to look for a home to buy in 5-6 years.
**etc. (What are other financial goals people have?)
