I usually think "when in doubt, C it out" but I chose E for no reason other than to get on with the rest of the exam

Was that the normal contribution for the OPEB? And using shortcut since no benefits during next year?

How long does it usually take for the SOA to release the exam? 2-3 weeks?

What I did was I tallied my A B C D E's and picked whatever was lowest. Happened to be A in my case, and 1 of my 2 guesses were right. I probably got lucky though lol.

If that answer was 2400, it was correct. I remember that last problem was one of the tougher questions on the exam, but I had a few run-in's on ADAPT that had a question very similar to that particular question.

I think the singles digit was a 9 for every answer choice, but every answer choice was something like 2229, 2329, 2429, 2529, and 2629.
