    Option (D) is correct.

    Explanation:

    Given that,

    company issues = $15,000,000 bonds

    Rate of interest = 7.8%

    Time period = 20 years

    Interest expense for 2013:

    = (Issued amount * rate) + [ (Issued amount - Bonds proceeds) : Time period]

    = ($15,000,000 * 7.8%) + [ ($15,000,000 - $14,703,109) : 20]

    = $1,170,000 + $14,845

    = $1,184,845

    Therefore, the interest expense for 2013, using straight-line amortization is $1,184,845.
