    The correct answer is B. Cord has created a testamentary trust.

    Explanation:

    A testamentary trust is a legal and fiduciary relationship created through explicit instructions in the will of a deceased. A testamentary trust becomes effective upon the death of a person and is commonly used when someone wants to leave assets to a beneficiary, but does not want the beneficiary to receive those assets until a specific time. A testamentary trust is irrevocable after the death of the testator. It is also called Will Trust.
