    Insurance exchanges the uncertainty of a possible large financial loss for a certain smaller payment.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Insurance is a risk management tool that helps individuals or organizations protect themselves against potential financial losses. By paying a smaller premium, individuals transfer the risk of a possible large financial loss to the insurance company. In return, the insurance company agrees to provide compensation or coverage in the event of a covered loss. This arrangement allows individuals to have peace of mind and financial security, knowing that they are protected from unexpected expenses. Therefore, the statement that insurance exchanges the uncertainty of a possible large financial loss for a certain smaller payment is true.

    Companies should always insure against all risks, no matter how unlikely they are.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Insuring against all risks, no matter how unlikely they are, is not a practical approach for companies. It would result in excessive insurance costs and could potentially bankrupt the company. Instead, companies should assess the likelihood and potential impact of each risk and prioritize their insurance coverage accordingly. This allows them to manage risks effectively while maintaining financial stability. Therefore, the statement that companies should always insure against all risks, no matter how unlikely they are, is false.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Insurance companies often invest the premiums they receive from policyholders in various financial instruments such as stocks, bonds, and real estate. These investments generate returns that help insurance companies cover the costs of claims and other expenses. In this way, insurance companies function as investment companies, using the funds they collect to generate additional income and grow their assets. Therefore, the statement is true.

  • 7.

    A. True
    Explanation
    Some insurance agents work as independent agents and are not directly employed by any specific insurance company. These agents have the flexibility to sell insurance policies from multiple insurance companies and provide unbiased advice to their clients. Therefore, it is true that not all insurance agents work for an insurance company.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because while insurance protection is important for a company, it is not the sole determinant of its survival. There are various factors that can affect a company's ability to stay in business, such as market conditions, competition, financial management, and strategic decision-making. While insurance can provide financial protection in case of unforeseen events, a company can still find alternative ways to manage risks and continue operating even if it cannot afford insurance.

    Business interruption insurance provides compensation for ongoing business expenses that occur if a business has a temporary shutdown due to a fire, flood, or other major problem. This means that if a business is unable to operate due to a covered event, such as a fire or flood, the insurance policy will reimburse the business for its ongoing expenses, such as rent, utilities, and employee salaries. This coverage helps businesses recover financially during the period of interruption and ensures that they can continue to meet their financial obligations even when they are unable to generate income.

It is the formal process of notifying the insurance company about the loss and seeking compensation for the damages or expenses incurred. The insurance company then evaluates the claim and determines whether it meets the criteria for coverage outlined in the policy. If approved, the insurance company will provide the policyholder with the agreed-upon payment for the loss.

This can include risks such as accidents, illnesses, or injuries that can cause physical or emotional harm to the person involved. Property risk, on the other hand, refers to the potential damage or loss of one's property or belongings.

The insured pays premiums to the insurer in exchange for coverage and assumes the risk of potential losses. The insurer, in turn, agrees to compensate the insured for covered losses as specified in the insurance policy.

In this type of risk, there is no potential for profit or benefit, only the possibility of experiencing a negative outcome. This is different from speculative risks, which involve both the potential for gain and loss. Non-economic risks refer to risks that do not involve financial loss, while liability risks pertain to the potential for legal responsibility or obligation.

This type of risk is commonly associated with investments in the stock market or other speculative ventures where the potential for profit exists, but there is also a significant possibility of loss. Unlike pure risk, which only involves the possibility of loss, speculative risk offers the potential for both gain and loss. Personal risk and controllable risk do not encompass the concept of both gain and loss, making speculative risk the correct answer.

Liability risks involve the potential for legal claims or lawsuits, which can lead to financial liability. Property risks involve the potential for damage or loss to physical assets, such as homes or vehicles, which can result in financial costs for repairs or replacement. These risks are considered economic because they directly impact an individual's or organization's financial well-being.

  • 24. 

    The actual loss for a business from theft is

    • A.

      The price the business paid for the product.

    • B.

      The retail price of the product.

    • C.

      The profit that would have been made on the product.

    • D.

      The amount the insurance company will pay for the item.

    Correct Answer
    A. The price the business paid for the product.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "the price the business paid for the product." This means that the actual loss for a business from theft is the cost that the business originally paid to acquire the stolen item. This does not include the retail price, the potential profit, or the amount that the insurance company may reimburse. The business is directly impacted by the loss of the initial investment made to purchase the product.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Which of these actions encourages employee theft?

    • A.

      Ensuring employees are satisfied with their jobs

    • B.

      Allow employees to process transactions between themselves and the company

    Explanation
    Allowing employees to process transactions between themselves and the company can encourage employee theft. This action creates an opportunity for employees to manipulate transactions for personal gain, such as pocketing cash or misusing company resources. By giving employees control over transactions, there is a higher risk of fraudulent activities and theft occurring within the organization.

    Using careful hiring procedures is the most important action a business can take to reduce employee theft. By thoroughly screening potential employees, conducting background checks, and verifying references, businesses can identify individuals with a history of theft or dishonesty. This helps to ensure that only trustworthy individuals are hired, reducing the likelihood of internal theft.

    The main source of loss in American businesses is

    • A.

      Employee theft.

    • B.

      Shoplifting.

    • C.

      Poor inventory management.

    • D.

      Insurance fraud.

    Correct Answer
    A. Employee theft.
    Explanation
    Employee theft is the main source of loss in American businesses because it refers to the act of employees stealing or embezzling company resources, such as money, products, or sensitive information. This can significantly impact a company's profitability and overall financial health. While shoplifting, poor inventory management, and insurance fraud can also cause losses, employee theft is often more prevalent and damaging as it involves individuals within the organization who have access to valuable assets.

    Rate this question:

  • 28.

    • A.

      Require that the customer's name, address and phone number are pre-printed on the check

    • B.

    • C.

      Giving cash back for checks written in an amount above the purchase price

    • D.

      Accepting checks that are from out-of-state banks

    Correct Answer
    A. Require that the customer's name, address and phone number are pre-printed on the check
    Explanation
    Requiring that the customer's name, address, and phone number are pre-printed on the check tends to reduce losses from bad checks because it provides a way to contact the customer if there are any issues with the check. This information can be used to verify the customer's identity and ensure that the check is legitimate. It also acts as a deterrent for potential fraudsters, as they are less likely to provide accurate personal information on a fraudulent check. Overall, this requirement increases the chances of recovering funds or resolving any problems associated with bad checks.

    • G.

      Keeping the same door locks regardless of employee turnover

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Keeping records of key distribution
    B. Ensuring each lock is fitted properly for the door
    C. Keeping a minimum amount of cash on hand by making frequent bank deposits
    D. Storing more expensive items in harder-to-reach places
    F. Prohibiting employees from copying work keys
    Explanation
    An effective method of preventing or reducing loss due to burglary and robbery is to keep records of key distribution. This helps to track who has access to the premises and can aid in identifying any potential security breaches. Ensuring that each lock is fitted properly for the door is also important as it can deter burglars and make it more difficult for them to gain entry. Keeping a minimum amount of cash on hand by making frequent bank deposits reduces the incentive for robberies. Storing more expensive items in harder-to-reach places makes it more challenging for burglars to steal them. Prohibiting employees from copying work keys further enhances security by limiting unauthorized access.

    • B.

      Properly training employees

    • C.

      Safe building and facility design

    • D.

      Trimming trees and bushes

    Correct Answer
    A. Planning for non-occurrence of accidents
    Explanation
    Planning for non-occurrence of accidents is not an effective method of preventing or reducing accidents because accidents can still occur even with thorough planning. While planning can help identify potential hazards and develop safety protocols, accidents can still happen due to unforeseen circumstances or human error. It is important to have additional measures such as properly training employees, safe building and facility design, and trimming trees and bushes to create a safe environment and reduce the likelihood of accidents.

    All of the following are types of insurance a business might purchase to protect its employees EXCEPT

    • A.

      Health insurance.

    • B.

      Disability insurance.

    • C.

      Liability insurance.

    • D.

      Life insurance.

    Correct Answer
    C. Liability insurance.
    Explanation
    A business might purchase health insurance to provide medical coverage for its employees, disability insurance to provide income protection in case of disability, and life insurance to provide financial support for the families of employees in case of their death. However, liability insurance is not meant to protect employees directly. It is designed to protect the business from legal claims and expenses in case of accidents, injuries, or damages caused by the business's operations or products. Therefore, liability insurance is not a type of insurance that a business would purchase to protect its employees.

    • C.

      Workers' compensation insurance

    • D.

      Liability insurance

    Correct Answer
    A. Group insurance
    Explanation
    Group insurance is the correct answer because it is a type of insurance that provides coverage to a large number of employees and their family members under a single policy. This type of insurance is typically offered by employers as a benefit to their employees, and it helps to spread the risk among a group of individuals. Group insurance policies often include coverage for health, life, disability, and dental insurance, among others. By pooling the risk, group insurance can provide more affordable coverage compared to individual insurance policies.

    Calm employees by telling them that all risks are insured (even if they're not) does not help a business manage uninsurable risks because it creates a false sense of security. It is important for a business to be transparent and honest with its employees about the risks that cannot be insured, so that they can take appropriate measures to mitigate those risks.

    Which of these is a legal way to reduce shoplifting?

    • A.

      Security cameras in generally accessible areas

    • B.

      Security cameras in dressing rooms

    • C.

      Posting pictures of suspected shoplifters in public.

    A. Security cameras in generally accessible areas
    Explanation
    One legal way to reduce shoplifting is by installing security cameras in generally accessible areas. These cameras can act as a deterrent to potential shoplifters, as they are aware that their actions are being recorded and can be used as evidence against them. Additionally, the presence of cameras can help store employees monitor the sales floor and identify any suspicious behavior. By having cameras in generally accessible areas, the store can maintain a level of surveillance that helps deter and catch shoplifters without violating any legal rights or resorting to harmful measures.

It must be in writing and signed by the maker, contain an unconditional promise to pay, and be payable on demand or at a certain time.
