Question: 1 / 50

An agent is best described as someone who?

Represents a principal

An agent is someone who acts on behalf of a principal, representing their interests in various transactions. This can involve negotiating, making decisions, and carrying out tasks on behalf of the principal. While working independently and as a sole proprietor are possible roles for an agent, they are not the defining characteristics or requirements. "Is not involved in contractual agreements" is incorrect because agents are often involved in creating and negotiating contracts for their principals.

Works independently

Is not involved in contractual agreements

Operates as a sole proprietor
