Not surprised to see that 13 is a total cluster. That was the one I had to guess on. I'd be curious to remember what 17 was... kind of split there.

I think 17 was the type B universal life with corridor factor that asked what the ADB is in year 6. I couldn't get it

I couldn’t get it either. I was certain my work was correct, even considering the corridor factor. But clearly, it just wasn’t working for me.
Defective question!!!

17 was the question that had a corridor factor. The strange thing is that I was getting that the corridor factor did kick in; however, there was no multiple choice that had the ADB using the corridor factor.

Was 13 the one where you had to get gross premium reserve using the given net premium reserve and the expenses?

13 was the weird cash flow problem where part of the DB went towards premiums. I had no idea what they were looking for.

If 17 was the UL one then I feel pretty confident. I also found that the corridor was not in effect and my final result matched one of the options. I believe the answer was actually what the DB for year 6, which would be ADB plus AV. Unless I'm mixing that up w another question.

I think I did 1.5*AV since they asked what's the increase in death benefits. I spend quite some time on this question, but I am still not very confident.
