ASM Exam C Manual Exercise 11.15 [4-F01:36]

For this question, can someone help me understand how is the average number of losses per year = 2,000,000/23,759?

This does not make sense to me because 2,000,000 is the aggregate loss, but 23,759 is average payment with policy limit of 1,000,000 - so how is expected number of loss = expected aggregate loss / expected payment with policy limit?

I understand the formula is E[S]=E[N]*E[X] but my understanding is that this E[min(Loss;1,000,000)] is not E[X].

Also, anyone found Abe (the one who wrote the book and made the coaching actuaries videos) a bit passive aggressive when answering questions? I feel dis-encouraged asking questions on CA because of that..

It would help if you could post the problem as some people do not have the manual.

Aggregate losses are the total losses after individual deductibles and limits, so they already take the 1000000 per-claim limit into account. Aggregate losses are only modified by aggregate deductibles and aggregate limits.
