B for life… cause B is just too sweeeeet!

Could someone please explain why it is B please?

B because people prefer long maturity and hence the demand would puch the price of the long maturity bond higher compared to the shorter maturity. Price has an inverse relation with yield so th eyield will fall…hence downward sloping
