the other hand, they are unable to raise
(B) when short-term rates rise and they are unable to raise
(C) when a rise in short-term rates occurs and,
correspondingly, there is no rise possible in
(D) with a rise in short-term rates, and they are
unable to raise
(E) with short-term rates on the rise and no rise
possible in
