Answer:

c. $956,804

Explanation:

The computation of the issue price of the bond is as follows

Given that

Future value = $800,000

RATE = 6% ÷ 2 = 3%

PMT = $800,000 × 8% ÷ 2 = $32,000

NPER = 15 × 2 = 30

The formula is shown below

=-PV(RATE;NPER;PMT;FV;TYPE)

After applying the above formula, the present value is $956,804

hence, the issued price of the bond is $956,804

Therefore the correct option is c.
