    Answer: (c) 9.02%

    Explanation:

    The current yield is equal to the annual interest earned divided by the current price of the bond.

    Current Yield = Annual interest earned / Current price of the bond

    Annual interest earned = 8.5% x $1000 = $85

    Current price of the bond = $942.10

    Current Yield = (85 / 942.10) x 100 = 9.02%
