The answer is D. Expess, Implied and Apparent authority.

Agency authority of corporate officers
Officers are agents of the corporation. They can have:

  • Express authority—authority derived from corporation statutes, articles of incorporation, bylaws, and resolutions of the board of directors.
  • Implied authority—authority implied from the position of the corporate officers and the facts and circumstances of the situation.
  • Apparent authority—authority arising when a third person is reasonably led to believe that an officer has authority to act when in fact the officer does not have express authority.
