Rate when compounded annually will give the same compound each year with the normal rate
 A Equivalent rates B Nominal rates C Effective rates D Common rates
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -The nominal rate is the interest rate as stated, usually compounded more than once per year. The effective rate (or effective annual rate) is a rate that, compounded annually, gives the same interest as the nominal rate. If two interest rates have the same effective rate, we say they are equivalent.

Detailed explanation-2: -The effective annual rate is normally higher than the nominal rate because the nominal rate quotes a yearly percentage rate regardless of compounding. Increasing the number of compounding periods increases the effective annual rate as compared to the nominal rate.

Detailed explanation-3: -The stated annual rate describes an annualized rate of interest that does not take into account the effect of intra-year compounding. Effective annual rates do account for intra-year compounding of interest. Banks will often show whichever rate appears more favorable, according to the financial product they’re selling.

Detailed explanation-4: -Effective annual interest rate = (1 + (nominal rate ÷ number of compounding periods)) * (number of compounding periods)-1.
