    Correct Answer
    D. $250,000.00
    Explanation
    The correct answer is $250,000.00. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) provides insurance coverage for deposits held at banks and savings associations. The current limit for FDIC insurance on a single account is $250,000. This means that if an individual has a deposit account with a balance of up to $250,000, their funds are fully insured by the FDIC in case the bank fails. Any amount exceeding $250,000 in a single account would not be covered by FDIC insurance.

This type of account is suitable for individuals who want to earn interest on their money while still having the flexibility to use it for daily transactions.

    • B.

      The bank returns your cancelled check

    Correct Answer
    C. The bank doesn't return the original paper check
    Explanation
    Check 21 refers to the process where the bank does not return the original paper check to the account holder. Instead, the bank uses an electronic image of the check for processing and record-keeping purposes. This allows for faster and more efficient check processing, as well as reduces the need for physical storage of paper checks. By not returning the original paper check, the bank promotes a more digital and streamlined approach to check transactions.

    • D.

      Discretionary Funds

    Correct Answer
    D. Discretionary Funds
    Explanation
    Discretionary funds are not a banking service because they refer to funds that are under the control and discretion of the individual or organization, rather than being managed or provided by a bank. Banking services typically involve the handling, management, and transfer of funds, such as electronic funds transfer, safe deposit boxes, and stop payment orders.

    A check written by the bank on its own funds is a(n)

    Correct Answer
    Cashiers Check
    Explanation
    A check written by the bank on its own funds is called a Cashiers Check. This type of check is considered more secure than a personal check because it is guaranteed by the bank. The bank withdraws the funds from the payer's account and holds them in its own account until the check is presented for payment. This ensures that the check will not bounce or be returned due to insufficient funds. Cashiers checks are often used for large transactions or when a guaranteed form of payment is required.

    When you write a check and your account doesn't have the funds to cover the check, the check will _____________________.

    Correct Answer
    Bounce
    Explanation
    When you write a check and your account doesn't have the funds to cover the check, the check will bounce. This means that the bank will not honor the check and it will be returned to the person or business who tried to deposit or cash it. Bouncing a check can result in fees from both the bank and the recipient, as well as potential damage to your credit score. It is important to ensure that you have sufficient funds in your account before writing a check to avoid this situation.

  • 8. 

    A _______________________ is a type of endorsement that is simply writing your name on the back of a check.

    Correct Answer
    blank endorsement
    Explanation
    A blank endorsement is a type of endorsement where the person simply writes their name on the back of a check. This type of endorsement does not specify a particular payee and makes the check payable to whoever presents it, essentially turning it into a bearer instrument. It is commonly used when the check needs to be cashed or deposited into a bank account.
