I think I see a problem with this question and I am looking for confirmation. I'm not going to restate it here  it's availible on the SOA and CAS website. As I see it, Ax is equal to one so that would make the value of answer A undefined as (1Ax) is in the denominator. This could not be the right answer as the expected value of L at t=0 with premiums determined by the equivalence principle is 0. So what's the deal?

Where is it available on the web site...I have not seen it as of yet....oops May 01

Naturally, as soon as I post this I realize my mistake. They are not asking for an expression for the Expected value of L. So the fact that the expresion for answer A is undefined apparently doesn't matter.

For this one, it's (b_t)*(A_x) = 1, not A_x = 1...

I now realize that I viewed Ax is the expected value of the special insurance.
