WHAT IS RISK?


Risk can be defined in different ways. This is also because every human activity is associated with risk and everyone defines risk in the light of his own peculiar experience.

   For example, risk has been variously defined of risk.
1        Risk is the chance of loss

3        Risk is the deviation of actual result from the expected

6        Risk is the uncertainty of loss
