Answer #1

**Answer 1:**

**The correct option is:**

**A. This is an example of a direct transfer of
capital.**

A is the correct option as this is a direct transfer of capital that you did with your brother.

The other options are wrong in this context as:

**Primary market** is a market in which new issues
are traded and the fund is directly transferred to the company. The
instrument traded here is called as IPO.

**Money Market** is a market where short duration
instruments (duration less than 1 year) are traded like T
bills.

In **Derivative Market,** we trade in derivative
instruments like forwards, futures and options, and not shares.
