debentures 
Explanation.

In corporate finance, a debenture is a medium- to long-term debt instrument used by large companies to borrow money, at a fixed rate of interest. The legal term "debenture" originally referred to a document that either creates a debt or acknowledges it, but in some countries the term is now used interchangeably with bond, loan stock or note. A debenture is thus like a certificate of loan or a loan bond evidencing the fact that the company is liable to pay a specified amount with interest and although the money raised by the debentures becomes a part of the company's capital structure, it does not become share capital.

All the classes  of shares above are rewarded with dividends. that is, if you subscribe to any of the shares, the company would pay you dividends as returns on investment, while debenture is an certificate that acknowledges a debt owed by one person to another.

Question 5

Explanation.

In a period of rapid economic growth, demand in the economy could be growing faster than its capacity can grow to meet it. This leads to inflationary pressures as firms respond to shortages by putting up the price. We can term this demand-pull inflation. Therefore, reducing the growth of aggregate demand (AD) should reduce inflationary pressures.The Central bank could increase interest rates. Higher rates make borrowing more expensive and saving more attractive. with this, individuals would be discouraged from borrowing and rather be lenders so as to enjoy high return on investment.
