Under the Uniform Securities Act, all of the following are prohibited EXCEPT:
a) Omitting a material fact due to time constraints
b) Refusal to follow a client’s instructions
c) Soliciting trades for unregistered exempt securities
d) Making an untrue statement regarding a material fact
A:
The correct answer is c.
