(b)   which are sold or traded at or near fair market value;

 

(c)    which are transferred between members of the same household; and

 

(d)   which are transferred for reasons other than qualifying or attempting to qualify for Food Stamp benefits; for example, a parent placing funds in an inaccessible educational trust fund.
