B. 5.89 percent

Explanation:

First, we calcualte the amount of the called bond at the 5% rate during 5 years

Principal 1,043.29

time 5.00

rate 0.05000

Amount 1,331.53

Now, we invest 1,000 and end up with 1,331.53 after 5 year so we use the same formula of future value of a lump sum to determinate the rate:

Principal 1,000

time 5.00

rate              r

r = 0.058937166
