Two investors are each issued one bond with the same face value, maturity date, and yield. After both bonds have reached maturity, it is discovered that one of the bondholders received a greater total return on her investment. If all expected payments were received, which of the following could explain the difference in return?

a.) One of the bonds was sold at face value while another was sold below face value.
b.) One of the bonds was a municipal bond while the other was a savings bond.
c.) One of the bonds was a corporate bond while the other was a savings bond.
