Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Inventoriable costs and period costs flow through the income statement at a merchandising company similar to the way costs flow at a manufacturing company.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Inventoriable costs are the costs associated with producing or acquiring goods that are held as inventory and are later sold. Period costs, on the other hand, are expenses that are not directly related to the production of goods, such as administrative expenses. In both a merchandising company and a manufacturing company, these costs flow through the income statement. This means that both types of costs are recognized as expenses and affect the company's net income. Therefore, the statement that inventoriable costs and period costs flow through the income statement at a merchandising company similar to the way costs flow at a manufacturing company is true.

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    Designing, marketing, customer services, and research and development expenses are all considered operating costs because they are directly related to the day-to-day operations of a business. These costs are incurred in order to generate revenue and maintain the business's operations. They are typically ongoing expenses that are necessary for the business to function and serve its customers. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Because costs that are inventoried are not expensed until the units associated with them are sold, a manager can produce more units than are expected to be sold in a period without reducing a firm's net income.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that when costs are inventoried, they are not immediately expensed. Instead, they are only expensed when the units associated with those costs are sold. This means that a manager can produce more units than are expected to be sold in a period without reducing the firm's net income because the costs associated with the additional units are not expensed until they are sold. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When indirect costs are incurred in marketing or in corporate headquarters, they are period costs. However, when these costs are incurred in manufacturing, they are manufacturing overhead costs and are inventoriable.
