    When an ARM is said to have a 2/6 cap, this means that there is a 2 percent maximum interest rate increase every year, and a 6 percent maximum interest rate increase over the life of the loan. This cap provides protection to borrowers by limiting the amount their interest rate can increase, ensuring that their monthly mortgage payments do not become unaffordable.

    Explanation
    A stock appreciation right is a form of compensation offered to employees, granting them the right to receive cash and/or stock equal to the increase in the value of the company's stock after the date of purchase. This means that if the stock price goes up, the employee can benefit from the increase in value by receiving additional cash or stock. It is a way for companies to incentivize and reward their employees for contributing to the company's success.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following is a noncash expense?

    • A.

      Net increase in liability

    • B.

      Disposal of property and equipment

    • C.

      Depreciation expense

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Depreciation expense
    Explanation
    Depreciation expense is a noncash expense because it represents the allocation of the cost of an asset over its useful life. It is a way to account for the wear and tear, obsolescence, or decrease in value of an asset over time. Although depreciation is recorded as an expense on the income statement, it does not involve an actual cash outflow. Instead, it is a way to recognize the decrease in the value of an asset over time and allocate that decrease as an expense on the financial statements.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What is the positive value of the residual if we add back the depreciation expense in a closing book value of fixed assets and deduct it from the opening balance of fixed assets?

    • A.

      Addition of assets

    • B.

      Deletion of assets

    • C.

      Multiplication of assets

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Addition of assets
    Explanation
    By adding back the depreciation expense to the closing book value of fixed assets and deducting it from the opening balance of fixed assets, we are essentially reversing the effect of the depreciation expense. This means that we are increasing the value of the fixed assets, leading to an addition of assets. Therefore, the positive value of the residual in this scenario would be the addition of assets.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    When should revenue be recognized in general?

    • A.

      When goods have been delivered

    • B.

      When it is virtually certain the amount will be collected

    • C.

      When related expenses incurred to generate the revenue

    • D.

      When goods have been manufactured

    Correct Answer
    B. When it is virtually certain the amount will be collected
    Explanation
    Revenue should be recognized when it is virtually certain that the amount will be collected. This means that the company should only recognize revenue when there is a high probability of receiving payment for the goods or services provided. This is important for accurate financial reporting and to ensure that revenue is not overstated. Recognizing revenue before it is virtually certain to be collected could result in misleading financial statements and potential issues with cash flow.

    The objective of a matching principle is:

    • A.

      To accurately tabulate taxes

    • B.

      To provide relevant information in the same period

    • C.

      Recognize expenses in the same period in which income is earned

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Recognize expenses in the same period in which income is earned
    Explanation
    The objective of a matching principle is to recognize expenses in the same period in which income is earned. This principle ensures that expenses are properly matched with the revenues they generate, resulting in accurate financial statements. By matching expenses with the corresponding revenues, the matching principle provides relevant information in the same period, allowing for better decision-making and analysis. It also helps in accurately tabulating taxes by providing a clear picture of the financial performance for a specific period.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If the expected return on your treasury stock is 9% and the expected return on your market portfolio is 11%. With a beta coefficient of 1.1, what would be the expected return on the stock?

    • A.

      10.5%

    • B.

      11.5%

    • C.

      12.6%

    • D.

      13%

    Correct Answer
    B. 11.5%
    Explanation
    The expected return on a stock can be calculated using the formula: expected return = risk-free rate + beta coefficient * (expected return on market portfolio - risk-free rate). In this case, the risk-free rate is not given, so we cannot calculate the exact expected return. However, we can determine that the expected return on the stock would be higher than the risk-free rate (9%) but lower than the expected return on the market portfolio (11%). Therefore, the closest option to this range is 11.5%, which would be the expected return on the stock.
