    Explanation
    Transaction risk occurs when you must make a payment or receive a payment in a foreign currency in the future. This is because exchange rates can fluctuate, resulting in potential losses or gains when converting currencies. Therefore, both options "a" and "b" are correct as they both involve the risk associated with foreign currency transactions.

    Correct Answer
    A. Foreign exchange rate fluctuations.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is foreign exchange rate fluctuations. Hedging is a risk management strategy that involves taking actions to protect oneself from potential losses caused by changes in foreign exchange rates. By hedging against currency fluctuations, individuals or businesses can mitigate the impact of exchange rate movements on their financial transactions, investments, or international trade activities. This can be done through various financial instruments such as forward contracts, options, or futures contracts. Hedging against bounced checks or risky investments is not related to foreign exchange rate fluctuations.

    A Pro Forma invoice is issued before the Letter of Credit (L/C) is sent. This is because the Pro Forma invoice serves as a preliminary bill that outlines the details of a transaction, including the estimated costs and terms of sale. It is typically used to provide the buyer with an idea of the final invoice amount and to facilitate the process of obtaining the necessary funds or securing the L/C. Therefore, the Pro Forma invoice is issued prior to sending the L/C to ensure that all parties involved are aware of the transaction details and can proceed accordingly.
