    C, because compound will take place and give account B more money in the second year, as it gives you interest on top of the interest from the last year that has already been added to the money in your bank account. In the first year they will both have the same amount of money from interest even though they have different types of interest. I hope that makes sense? xD

    But doesn't compound interest always make more cause its adding more interest to the already large amount cause it adds up?
