    Explanation
    An individual checking account is a personal account that is owned and operated by a single individual. This means that only one person has access to the account and is responsible for managing its transactions and funds. It is different from a joint account, which allows multiple individuals to have ownership and access to the account.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Both A & B" because funds in a checking account can be accessed through both checks and ATMs. Checks can be written to make payments or transfer funds from the account, while ATMs allow account holders to withdraw cash, make deposits, and perform other banking transactions. Therefore, both options A and B are valid ways to access funds in a checking account.

    The number of a checking account is commonly referred to as the account number. This number uniquely identifies a specific checking account and is used for various banking transactions such as deposits, withdrawals, and transfers. It is different from a check serial number, which is a unique identifier for each individual check. An ATM pin, on the other hand, is a personal identification number used for accessing an ATM or making transactions. Therefore, the correct answer is account number.

A restrictive endorsement specifies the conditions under which the check can be transferred, such as "For Deposit Only." A special endorsement, also known as an endorsement in full, transfers the check to a specific person or organization. Therefore, all three options are valid types of endorsements.

    Correct Answer
    D. Overdraft fee
    Explanation
    The given question asks to identify which of the options is not a credit. A credit refers to an addition of funds to an account. Both interest earned and cash deposit are examples of credits as they increase the balance in an account. However, an overdraft fee is a charge imposed when a customer withdraws more money than is available in their account, resulting in a negative balance. Therefore, an overdraft fee is not a credit, but rather a fee or charge imposed by the bank.

      Interest gained

      Cash withdrawal

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Interest gained
    Explanation
    Interest gained is not a debit because it represents the money earned on an investment or savings account. In accounting terms, debits are used to record decreases in assets or increases in liabilities. However, interest gained represents an increase in assets, as it adds to the overall value of the account. Therefore, interest gained is not a debit.
