      The correct answer is B.

      A mortgage that starts out with a fixed rate and converted to a fixed rate later is referred to as a rollover or renegotiable mortgage. These are often used in Canada, Germany, Denmark, etc.

      If the mortgage starts at a fixed rate and is later converted into an adjustable rate mortgage, then we would say this is a hybrid mortgage.

      A convertible mortgage is an adjustable-rate loan that gives the borrower the option to convert the loan to a fixed-rate mortgage.

      Thank you for the detailed and detailed answer. I think that everyone intuitively guessed which answer was correct. It is worth adding more complex tasks to think about the answer. I have recently been very interested in real estate and mortgages.
