Default ASM Manual Questions

I'm using the ASM manual and in one of the examples (example 27C) I am asked to calculate e(20) but I'm not sure what equation e(20) is calculating? (mean, variance, ect.) I know it's not either of those but thatís the type of answer I am looking for.

I compared the solutions to the exam tables and I can't back into what exactly it is asking for, does anybody know (it may be an ASM shorthand that I havenít come across yet)

This question came from the former Exam C manual where e(x) was defined as mean excess loss: the expected value of the excess of the random variable over x, given that it is greater than x.

I'll rewrite the question.
