The correct answer is ‘strong-form’.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution


According to the EMH or efficient market hypothesis, the stock prices reflect all information therefore they are never undervalued or overvalued. Though the hypothesis is based on the theory that the market is generally efficient, this theory is offered in three different versions i.e. weak, semi-strong and strong-form.


Strong-form efficiency includes all the information i.e. historical, public and private. Therefore it offers the most inclusive information.
