Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is not an example of what an insurance policy can provide an insured ?

    • A.

      Help protect from the possibility of a loss.

    • B.

      Reduce the uncertainity of financial loss

    • C.

      Eliminate the risk of sickness

    • D.

      Replace a large possible loss with that of a small certain loss (Premium).

    Correct Answer
    C. Eliminate the risk of sickness
    Explanation
    The given answer is "Eliminate the risk of sickness". Insurance policies can provide various benefits to the insured, such as helping protect from the possibility of a loss, reducing the uncertainty of financial loss, and replacing a large possible loss with that of a small certain loss through premium payments. However, insurance policies typically do not eliminate the risk of sickness entirely. While health insurance can cover medical expenses related to sickness, it does not eliminate the risk of getting sick in the first place.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Select from the choices below the best description of a speculative risk.

    • A.

      Insuring someone over the age of 90

    • B.

      Involving the possibility of a gain in addition to the uncertainty of loss

    • C.

      Insuring against a situation that offers no possibility of gain

    • D.

      The purchase of an insurance policy to protect from gambling losses

    Correct Answer
    B. Involving the possibility of a gain in addition to the uncertainty of loss
    Explanation
    A speculative risk is a type of risk that involves the possibility of both gain and loss. Unlike pure risks, which only involve the possibility of loss, speculative risks offer the potential for a positive outcome or profit. This can include activities such as investing in the stock market or starting a new business venture, where there is a chance of making money but also a risk of losing it.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The best description of a hazard is a/an:

    • A.

      Condition that may increase the chance that a loss may occur

    • B.

      Cause of a loss

    • C.

      Pure risk

    • D.

      Uncertainty of a financial loss

    Correct Answer
    A. Condition that may increase the chance that a loss may occur
    Explanation
    A hazard refers to a condition that has the potential to increase the likelihood of a loss occurring. It does not necessarily cause the loss itself, but it creates a higher risk or danger that can lead to a loss. Hazards can be physical, such as slippery floors or faulty equipment, or they can be intangible, such as inadequate safety protocols or employee negligence. By identifying and mitigating hazards, individuals and organizations can minimize the chances of experiencing a loss or damage.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Intentionally submitting false information on a life application is an example of a moral hazard.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Intentionally submitting false information on a life application is considered a moral hazard because it involves dishonesty and deceit. By providing false information, the individual is trying to gain an unfair advantage or benefit, which goes against moral principles. This behavior can lead to negative consequences for both the individual and the insurance company, as it can result in fraudulent claims or inaccurate risk assessments. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The owner of an office building recognizes the hazards of the building because of its age.  He decides to finally get insurance to protect him from a possible legal suit.  this would be an example of avoidance of risk.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the owner of an office building recognizes the hazards of the building due to its age and decides to get insurance to protect himself from a possible legal suit. However, this scenario does not represent avoidance of risk. Instead, it signifies risk transfer, as the owner is transferring the potential financial burden of a legal suit to the insurance company. Avoidance of risk would involve taking actions to eliminate or minimize the hazards associated with the building's age, rather than simply obtaining insurance coverage. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Choose from the following selections the best description of a premium.

    • A.

      Funds received by an insured from an insurer to realize the benefits of the policy.

    • B.

      Funds received by an insurer from an insured to realize the benefits of the policy.

    • C.

      A bonus paid to an agent for high insurance sales production.

    • D.

      The amount an insured pays for each unit of coverage. $7 for every $1,000 of coverage is an example.

    Correct Answer
    B. Funds received by an insurer from an insured to realize the benefits of the policy.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Funds received by an insurer from an insured to realize the benefits of the policy." This answer accurately describes a premium as the amount of money that the insured pays to the insurer in order to receive the benefits outlined in the insurance policy. It highlights the fact that the insured is making a payment to the insurer, rather than receiving funds from the insurer. The other options are incorrect as they do not accurately describe a premium.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of these is the best way to define the concept of "indemnity ?"

    • A.

      It's only when concealed facts are material that an insurer can rescind or cancel a policy.

    • B.

      Only the insurance company makes a legally enforceable promise.

    • C.

      An insured cannot receive more than an actual economic loss in the event of a claim

    • D.

      If there is an unclear statement in a contract of insurance the courts will rule in favor of the insured.

    Correct Answer
    C. An insured cannot receive more than an actual economic loss in the event of a claim
    Explanation
    The concept of "indemnity" refers to the principle that an insured individual cannot receive more than their actual economic loss in the event of a claim. This means that the purpose of insurance is to provide financial compensation to the insured for their actual loss, rather than allowing them to profit from the claim. This principle ensures that insurance remains a tool for risk management and not a means for individuals to gain financially from unfortunate events.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The principle of indemnification is best described below as:

    • A.

      Protecting from any past legal situation.

    • B.

      A hazard not specifically defnied in the code.

    • C.

      A form of insurance that insurance companies buy to decrease exposure from investment losses

    • D.

      Restoring an individual to a condition they enjoyed in the past, thus making them whole

    Correct Answer
    D. Restoring an individual to a condition they enjoyed in the past, thus making them whole
    Explanation
    The principle of indemnification refers to the process of restoring an individual to the same financial position they were in before a loss or damage occurred. This means that the person is compensated for their loss in a way that they are returned to the same state they were in prior to the incident. By doing so, they are made whole again and not left at a disadvantage due to the loss.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When is insurable interest required to exist with a life insurance policy ?

    • A.

      At the time of death.

    • B.

      At the time the policy is written but not at the time of death.

    • C.

      At the time the policy is written and at the time of death.

    • D.

      At all times during the policy life.

    Correct Answer
    B. At the time the policy is written but not at the time of death.
    Explanation
    Insurable interest is required to exist with a life insurance policy at the time the policy is written but not at the time of death. This means that the policyholder must have a financial interest in the life of the insured when the policy is initially taken out. This requirement ensures that the policy is not taken out solely for the purpose of benefiting from the insured's death. However, once the policy is in effect, the policyholder's insurable interest is no longer necessary for the policy to remain valid.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    All the following statements regarding policy dividends are true except:

    • A.

      Non-participating policies generally pay large dividends.

    • B.

      Dividends cannot be guaranteed

    • C.

      Not all dividends are taxable

    Correct Answer
    A. Non-participating policies generally pay large dividends.
    Explanation
    Non-participating policies generally do not pay dividends. This is because non-participating policies do not share in the profits or surplus of the insurance company. On the other hand, participating policies are eligible for dividends as they are entitled to a share in the company's profits. Therefore, the statement that non-participating policies generally pay large dividends is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Sam's insurance policy pays a dividend.  the agent that sold Sam the policy refers to the shareholders of the company as "participating", therefore it is a(n) ______________insurer.

    • A.

      Assessment

    • B.

      Foreign

    • C.

      Stock

    • D.

      Mutual

    Correct Answer
    D. Mutual
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Mutual". This is because a mutual insurer is a type of insurance company that is owned by its policyholders, who are also referred to as shareholders. In this case, since the agent refers to the shareholders of the company as "participating", it indicates that the policyholders have a stake in the company and can receive dividends from the profits. Therefore, the insurance policy that Sam has is from a mutual insurer.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which of the following would be considered an alien insurer ?

    • A.

      An unauthorized company that underwrites undocumented workers.

    • B.

      A company located in England and doing business in California

    • C.

      A company that is organized in Nevada but maintains branch offices in this state.

    • D.

      All the above are alien insurers.

    Correct Answer
    B. A company located in England and doing business in California
    Explanation
    An alien insurer refers to an insurance company that is located outside of the jurisdiction where it conducts business. In this case, a company located in England and doing business in California would be considered an alien insurer because it is operating in a jurisdiction different from its location. The other options do not meet the criteria of being an alien insurer as they either involve unauthorized companies or companies with branch offices in the same jurisdiction.

    Rate this question:

  • 13.

      Principal

    • B.

      Implied

    • C.

      Express

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Implied
    Explanation
    If Julie performs acts that are not specifically named in the written contract she has with Silver Dollar Insurance Company, she is exercising her implied authority. Implied authority refers to the authority that is not explicitly stated in the contract but is reasonably necessary for the agent to carry out their duties and responsibilities. In this case, Julie's actions that are not specifically mentioned in the contract but are necessary for her role as a licensed insurance salesperson would fall under implied authority.

    The Fair Credit Reporting Act mandates that a credit reporting company responds to a consumer complaint when that company's credit report inaccurately reflects information about the consumer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Fair Credit Reporting Act requires credit reporting companies to address consumer complaints if their credit reports contain inaccurate information about the consumer. This means that if a consumer finds errors in their credit report, they have the right to file a complaint with the credit reporting company, who is then obligated to investigate and correct any inaccuracies. This ensures that consumers have a way to dispute and correct any incorrect information that could potentially harm their creditworthiness.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    In the process of applying for insurance an applicant is asked questions that do not relate to underwriting but are clearly meant for attaining marketing information.  Under the code this practice is allowable assuming the person aplying for coverage is informed of such practices.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true. According to the code, insurance companies are allowed to ask applicants questions that are not directly related to underwriting but are meant to gather marketing information. However, it is important that the applicant is informed about such practices. This allows insurance companies to collect data for marketing purposes while ensuring transparency and consent from the applicant.

      The face amount of the policy one year from the date of issue.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the above
    Explanation
    The term "consideration" in the context of issuing an insurance policy refers to the payment made by the policyholder in exchange for the coverage provided by the insurer. It is the premium paid by the policyholder to obtain the insurance policy. Therefore, none of the options provided in the question accurately describe the term "consideration".

Each party is entitled to rely upon the representations of the other party means that both the insurer and the insured can trust the information provided by each other and make decisions based on that information. This principle promotes transparency and trust in the insurance business.

    Explanation
    The California Insurance Code is basically the body of laws governing insurance business in this state. This means that it includes all the laws and regulations that are applicable to the insurance industry in California. The statement that it is broken into five sections is not mentioned in the given information. Therefore, the correct answer is 2 only.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    The Commissioner has numerous responsibilities and wide-ranging authority concerning the California Insurance Code.  Should he deem it necessary, he can rewrite certain sections of the code to better serve the insuring public.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the Commissioner does not have the authority to rewrite certain sections of the California Insurance Code. While the Commissioner does have numerous responsibilities and wide-ranging authority concerning the code, rewriting sections is not one of them. The Commissioner can enforce and interpret the code, but any changes or amendments to the code would require legislative action.

    Rate this question:

      Concealment

    • B.

      Material information

    • C.

      Boycotting

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Concealment
    Explanation
    Concealment refers to the act of deliberately withholding or not disclosing important information that one party is aware of and should communicate to the other party. This lack of communication prevents the other party from making an informed decision. It is a form of deception where material information is intentionally hidden, potentially leading to negative consequences for the party who is not aware of the concealed information.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    From the following, identify that which applies to an applicant's misstatement on an application for insurance. 1. Should the misstatement be made with express intent to mislead the insurer it is considered fraud. 2. Should the misstatement not be material to the Company's decision it may not affect the application.

    • A.

      1 only

    • B.

      2 only

    • C.

      1 and 2

    Correct Answer
    C. 1 and 2
    Explanation
    If an applicant makes a misstatement on an insurance application with the express intent to mislead the insurer, it is considered fraud. This means that the applicant intentionally provided false information in order to deceive the insurer. On the other hand, if the misstatement is not material to the company's decision, it may not affect the application. This means that if the false information provided by the applicant does not have a significant impact on the insurer's decision-making process, it may not be considered as a factor in the application. Therefore, both statements 1 and 2 are correct.

    Rate this question:

    • B.

      Should either party violate a warranty it entitles the other party to cancel the contract.

    • C.

      Warranties can be made about events in the past, present or future.

    • D.

      Warranties made at or during the execution of a policy must be contained in the policy, signed by the insured and attached to the contract

    Correct Answer
    A. It is a statement merely made to the best of one's knowledge, and can only be express.
    Explanation
    The given answer is incorrect because a warranty is not merely a statement made to the best of one's knowledge. A warranty is a promise or guarantee made by one party to another party in a contract, and it can be either express or implied. It is a legally binding statement that assures the other party that certain facts or conditions are true or will be fulfilled. Therefore, the correct answer should be "Warranties can be made about events in the past, present or future."

    An agent mostly sells long-term care insurance to individuals.  He obtained his insurance license (life and health) in January of 1998.  In 1998 he must:

    • A.

      Complete 25 hours of life and health continuing education only

    • B.

      Complete 25 hours of life and health continuing education and, in addition, complete 8 hours of LTC specific continuing education, a total of 33 hours

    • C.

      Complete 25 hours of life and health continuing education, 8 of which are LTC specific

    • D.

      None of the above

    Explanation
    In 1998, the agent must complete 25 hours of life and health continuing education, 8 of which are specifically focused on long-term care (LTC). This is because the agent primarily sells LTC insurance to individuals, so it is necessary for him to have a solid understanding of the topic. By completing the required hours of continuing education, including the specific LTC education, the agent can stay updated on industry trends, regulations, and best practices, ensuring that he can provide the best service to his clients.

    • A.

      All renewal fees are paid but there is a termination of all appointments

    • B.

      The license has not been renewed

    • C.

      Transactions of insurance are no longer executed following a 1 year period.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. All renewal fees are paid but there is a termination of all appointments
    Explanation
    When an agent's license is considered inactive, it means that all renewal fees have been paid, but there is a termination of all appointments. This means that even though the agent has fulfilled the financial obligations for license renewal, they no longer have any active appointments or affiliations with insurance companies. This could be due to various reasons such as retirement, resignation, or termination of contracts. It is important to note that the other options mentioned in the question, such as license not being renewed or no longer executing insurance transactions, do not necessarily result in an inactive license.

    Correct Answer
    B. To cover a buy/sell agreement.
    Explanation
    Personal life insurance is typically purchased to provide financial protection for the policyholder and their loved ones in the event of their death. It can help to replace lost income, cover funeral expenses, pay off debts, and provide for the future financial needs of dependents. However, covering a buy/sell agreement is not a reason for an individual to purchase personal life insurance. A buy/sell agreement is a legal agreement between business partners or co-owners that determines what will happen to the business if one of them dies or leaves the company. In this case, life insurance would be purchased specifically to fund the buyout of the deceased or departing partner's share of the business.
