Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    ________ risks involve the possibility of gain as well as loss. 

    Explanation
    Speculative risks involve the possibility of both gain and loss. These types of risks are typically associated with investments or ventures where the outcome is uncertain and the potential for profit or loss exists. Unlike pure risks, which only involve the possibility of loss, speculative risks offer the potential for financial gain as well. Individuals or organizations engaging in speculative risks are willing to take on uncertainty and potential losses in the hopes of achieving higher returns or profits.

It involves a contractual agreement between an employer and an employee, where the employee provides their services or skills in exchange for a salary or wages.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because a single transaction of sale or purchase of goods cannot be considered as a business.

A single transaction does not meet the criteria of being a business as it lacks the element of continuity and regularity.
