A Short Business Management Sample Quiz - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A form of business that can have many owners and issue stock:

    • A.

      Corporation

    • B.

      Sole-proprietorship

    • C.

      Partnership

    • D.

      Cooperative

    Correct Answer
    A. Corporation
    Explanation
    A corporation is a form of business that can have many owners and issue stock. Unlike sole-proprietorship or partnership, a corporation is a separate legal entity from its owners, known as shareholders. This means that the corporation can enter into contracts, own property, and be held liable for its own debts and obligations. Additionally, a corporation can issue stock, which represents ownership in the company and allows shareholders to have a voice in the decision-making process. This structure provides flexibility and allows for the potential to raise large amounts of capital through the sale of stock.

    In this type of business, the owner is responsible for all debts:

    • A.

      Corporation

    • B.

      Sole-Proprietorship

    • C.

      Partnership

    • D.

      Cooperative

    Correct Answer
    B. Sole-Proprietorship
    Explanation
    In a sole-proprietorship, the owner is responsible for all debts. This means that if the business incurs any financial obligations or liabilities, the owner is personally liable for them. Unlike in a corporation or partnership where the business entity itself is responsible for its debts, in a sole-proprietorship, there is no legal distinction between the owner and the business. This means that the owner's personal assets can be used to satisfy any outstanding debts of the business.

      Custom Manufacturing

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. Custom Manufacturing
    Explanation
    Custom manufacturing is the correct answer because it refers to a form of production where products are made to fit the specific needs and requirements of individual customers. This process involves tailoring the design, materials, and specifications of the product to meet the unique demands of each customer. Unlike mass production or bulk manufacturing, which produce large quantities of standardized products, custom manufacturing focuses on creating personalized and customized products for individual customers. Marketing, on the other hand, is a separate function that involves promoting and selling products or services to customers.
