Answer #1

Ans is

B) Increase

**Working**:-

Negative interest-sensitive GAP means that the bank has more interest-sensitive liabilities than interest-sensitive assets.

If the interest rate falls, then, liabilities will decrease and lesser interest will be received. However, since, interest liability is more than interest assets, therefore, banks' interest income will increase.
