      The correct answer is Option B. 

      Under an independently floating rate regime, the exchange rate is left to market determination and the monetary authority is able to exercise independent monetary policy aimed at achieving such objectives as price stability and full employment.  The central bank also has the latitude to act as a lender of last resort to troubled financial institutions, if necessary.
