Portfolio C | 14.8% | 4.2% |

12. A distribution more peaked than the normal distribution is best described as being:

- Option : C
- Explanation : Leptokurtic describes a distribution that is more peaked than the normal distribution. Platykurtic is a distribution less peaked than a normal distribution. Mesokurtic is a distribution as peaked as the normal distribution.

- Option : C
- Explanation : A positively skewed distribution has frequent small losses and a few large gains. A negatively skewed distribution has frequent small gains and a few large losses. A normal distribution is symmetrical.
