    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Marine insurance is considered the earliest form of insurance because it originated in ancient maritime civilizations. As early as the 3rd millennium BC, merchants in ancient Babylon and China would pool their resources to protect themselves against the risks of losing their cargo at sea. This practice eventually evolved into formal marine insurance contracts in ancient Greece and Rome. The need for marine insurance arose due to the high risks involved in maritime trade, such as shipwrecks, piracy, and damage to cargo. Thus, marine insurance predates other forms of insurance like fire insurance, motor insurance, and life assurance.

    The form of insurance which is difficult to underwrite profitably is? 

    Correct Answer
    Motor insurance
    Explanation
    Motor insurance is the correct answer because it is a type of insurance that involves a higher risk of claims and losses. Motor insurance policies cover damages and injuries caused by accidents involving vehicles. However, determining the premiums for motor insurance can be challenging due to various factors such as the driver's age, driving record, type of vehicle, and location. Additionally, the frequency and severity of motor accidents can vary significantly, making it difficult for insurance companies to accurately predict and price the risk. This makes underwriting motor insurance policies more complex and potentially less profitable compared to other forms of insurance.
