    The break-even chart is used to compare costs with revenue. It helps in determining the point at which a business or project will cover all its expenses and start generating profit. By plotting the fixed costs, variable costs, and revenue on the chart, one can visually analyze the relationship between costs and revenue and identify the break-even point. This tool is beneficial for businesses to make informed decisions regarding pricing, sales volume, and profitability.

    Correct Answer
    A. Rent of factory
    Explanation
    One example of a fixed cost is the rent of a factory. Fixed costs are expenses that do not change with the level of production or sales. In this case, the rent of the factory remains constant regardless of the number of units produced or sold. It is a recurring cost that the business has to pay regularly, regardless of its performance. Therefore, the rent of the factory is a fixed cost.

Monitoring and analyzing variances from the budget helps in identifying areas of success or areas that require attention and adjustment in order to achieve financial goals.
