(b) Contains or incorporates by reference, where such incorporation is otherwise permissible, any inconsistent, ambiguous, or misleading clauses, or exceptions and conditions which deceptively affect the risk purported to be assumed in the general coverage of the contract;
(c) Has any title, heading, or other indication of its provisions which is misleading;
(d) Is printed or otherwise reproduced in such manner as to render any material provision of the form substantially illegible; or
