This means that the value of the item is determined by considering its age, condition, and market value at the time of the loss. It is important to note that the Actual Cash Value is lower than the Replacement Cost, as it takes into account the wear and tear or depreciation of the item. Therefore, this option accurately describes the concept of Actual Cash Value.
