      The correct answer is A.

      ETFs and closed-end funds are sold and purchased in the exchange market rather than from the fund itself. ETFs are passively managed to match the index while closed-end funds are actively managed. In closed-end funds, the market price of shares and the NAV differ significantly, whereas ETFs are designed to keep their share price close to the NAVs.
