A) The bonds will sell at a premium if the market rate is 5.5 percent.

Explanation:

We know that, if the bonds are sold at par, the coupon rate and the interest rate is equal

If the coupon rate is more than the interest rate, then the bonds are sold at a premium

And, if the coupon rate is less than the interest rate, then the bonds are sold at a discount

So, by the above explanations, the option A is most appropriate, as coupon rate is 6% and the market rate is 5.5% which is lower than the coupon rate that means it is sold at a premium
