    Correct Answer
    C. Members
    Explanation
    In an LLC (Limited Liability Company), the owners are referred to as members.

The term "members" is commonly used in the context of LLCs to denote the individuals or entities that have ownership interests in the company.

    The person who receives the proceeds of a trust is known as the beneficiary. In a trust, the beneficiary is the individual or entity that is designated to receive the benefits or assets held in the trust. They may receive income generated by the trust, or they may have the right to the trust's assets at a certain point in time. The beneficiary is typically named in the trust agreement and can be a family member, friend, charity, or any other designated party.

    B. False
    Explanation
    False. A legal entity can be owned by individuals as well as other legal entities. It is possible for a corporation, partnership, or even another legal entity to own and control a separate legal entity. This allows for complex ownership structures and the ability to separate liability and assets between different entities.

      Storage Select, LLC

    • B.

      Billy & Gena's Storage, LP

    • C.

      Johns Storage, Inc.

    • D.

      The Harrison Family Revocable Trust

    Correct Answer
    A. Storage Select, LLC
    Explanation
    Storage Select, LLC is the correct answer because the abbreviation "LLC" stands for Limited Liability Company, which is a type of business structure that provides limited liability protection to its owners. The other options, such as Billy & Gena's Storage, LP, Johns Storage, Inc., and The Harrison Family Revocable Trust, do not have the "LLC" designation and therefore are not LLCs.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    True or False. Once we find a legal owner, our seaerch for the actual owner is complete.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because finding a legal owner does not necessarily mean that we have found the actual owner. Legal ownership can be transferred through various means such as sale, inheritance, or gift, but it does not guarantee that the current legal owner is the original or rightful owner. The actual owner could be someone else who has a valid claim or proof of ownership. Therefore, the search for the actual owner is not complete even after finding a legal owner.
