Answer (A) is correct. Ownership rights in foreign corporations are sometimes evidenced by American Depository Receipts (ADRs). The foreign stocks are deposited with a large U.S. bank, which in turn issues ADRs representing ownership in the foreign shares. The ADR shares then trade on a U.S. stock exchange, whereas the company’s original shares trade in foreign stock markets. ADRs allow foreign companies to develop a U.S. shareholder base without being subject to many SEC restrictions.
