    • A.

      Difference in Conditions policy

    • B.

      Commercial Umbrella policy

    • C.

      Surety bond

    • D.

      Fidelity bond

    Correct Answer
    B. Commercial Umbrella policy
    Explanation
    B is correct. Commercial Umbrella policies provide catastrophic Liability coverage for business risks. Because the Umbrella is not designed to handle usual or everyday exposures, the insured must have underlying Liability coverage before an Umbrella will be issued. The Umbrella can cover certain losses that are excluded by the underlying insurance.

  • 8.

    • A.

      It excludes coverage for basic perils such as fire, lightning, and windstorm.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. It excludes coverage for basic perils such as fire, lightning, and windstorm.

    Explanation
    A and B are correct. Difference in Conditions insurance is written to exclude the basic fire and extended coverage perils, but to include most other insurable perils that are not covered under Commercial Property coverage. Consequently, it is written in conjunction with policies providing the basic coverage excluded by the DIC policy. DIC policies are usually written on large risks with a high deductible.
