A conservative financing plan involves

A. heavy reliance on debt
B. heavy reliance on equity
C. high degree of financial leverage
D. high degree of combined leverage

This question is making my brain hurt, it seems straight foward, but I am still rather inexperienced with basic finance. I have looked through my text book and slides. I understand how the weight of debt + weight of perferred stock + weighted equity = WACC, but I cannot link this with conservative finance planning. I found a definition for financial leverage in my text book, so I am inclided to answer C. I don't have any more evidence to support my answer. HELP PLEASE....
