    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

It is important for investors to receive regular updates on their investments, even if they have not transacted in the past 6 months. This helps them stay informed about their holdings and any changes in their investment value. Therefore, the statement that dormant investors do not require a Statement of Account is false.
