Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Cash, Debtors, Land, and Equipment are examples of ___________.    (State whether these are Assets, Liabilities, or Owner's Equity).

    Explanation
    Cash, Debtors, Land, and Equipment are examples of assets. Assets are resources owned by a company that have economic value and are expected to provide future benefits. Cash represents the company's available funds, debtors are customers who owe the company money, land is a tangible asset that the company owns, and equipment is a long-term asset used in the company's operations. All of these items contribute to the company's overall value and can be used to generate revenue.

    Creditors, Short Term Loan, and Notes Payable are examples of ___________.    (State whether these are Assets, Liabilities, or Owner's Equity).

    Explanation
    Creditors, Short Term Loan, and Notes Payable are examples of liabilities. Liabilities are obligations or debts that a company owes to external parties. Creditors represent the amount owed to suppliers or vendors for goods or services received but not yet paid for. Short Term Loan refers to a loan that is due within one year, and Notes Payable represents a written promise to repay a specific amount within a certain period. All these examples indicate amounts that the company owes to others, making them liabilities.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Capital, drawings, and net income will affect ____________.    (State whether these affect Assets, Liabilities, or Owner's Equity).

    Explanation
    Capital, drawings, and net income are all components of Owner's Equity. Capital represents the initial investment made by the owner into the business, while drawings represent any withdrawals made by the owner from the business. Net income, on the other hand, represents the profit earned by the business. All of these factors directly impact the owner's equity in the business, as they either increase or decrease the owner's investment or share in the business.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Determine the net effect of the transaction by keying in i = increased, d = decreased, n = no effect. Purchased equipment for cash: Assets ___ = Liabilities ____ + Owner's Equity ____ State your answer in the box in this format, for example i n i  (This means Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect, and Owner's Equity increased. If Assets increased and decreased and Liabilities have no effect and Owner's Equity has no effect, the answer should be id n n).   

    Explanation
    The transaction of purchasing equipment for cash would result in an increase in assets (represented by "i"), as the company now owns the equipment. There would be no effect on liabilities (represented by "n"), as no debts or obligations were incurred in the transaction. Finally, there would be no effect on owner's equity (represented by "n"), as the transaction did not involve any contributions or withdrawals by the owner. The answer provided, "id n n,di n n," indicates that the first transaction resulted in an increase in assets and no effect on liabilities or owner's equity, while the second transaction resulted in a decrease in assets and no effect on liabilities or owner's equity.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Determine the net effect of the transaction by keying in i = increased, d = decreased, n = no effect. Paid creditors: Assets ___ = Liabilities ____ + Owner's Equity ____ State your answer in the box in this format, for example, i n i  (This means Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect, and Owner's Equity increased. If Assets increased and decreased and Liabilities have no effect and Owner's Equity has no effect, the answer should be id n n).   

    Explanation
    The transaction of paying creditors will decrease both assets and liabilities, but it will have no effect on owner's equity. Therefore, the net effect of the transaction is a decrease in assets, a decrease in liabilities, and no effect on owner's equity.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Determine the net effect of the transaction by keying in i = increased, d = decreased, n = no effect. Borrowed monies from bank: Assets ___ = Liabilities ____ + Owner's Equity ____ State your answer in the box in this format, for example: i n i  (This means Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect and Owner's Equity increased. If Assets increased and decreased and Liabilities have no effect and Owner's Equity has no effect, the answer should be id n n).   

    Explanation
    The transaction of borrowing money from the bank will increase both the assets and liabilities of the company. The assets will increase because the company now has more cash (or equivalent) on hand, which is considered an asset. The liabilities will increase because the company now owes money to the bank, which is considered a liability. However, the transaction does not have any effect on the owner's equity, as it is a separate category that represents the owner's investment in the business. Therefore, the correct answer is "i i n".

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Determine the net effect of the transaction by keying in i = increased, d = decreased, n = no effect. Received monies from debtor: Assets ___ = Liabilities ____ + Owner's Equity ____ State your answer in the box in this format, for example, i n i  (This means Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect, and Owner's Equity increased. If Assets increased and decreased and Liabilities have no effect and Owner's Equity has no effect, the answer should be id n n).   

    Explanation
    The transaction of receiving monies from a debtor will result in an increase in assets (i), as the company now has more cash or accounts receivable. There is no effect on liabilities (n), as the company does not owe any additional debts. There is also no effect on owner's equity (n), as the increase in assets does not result in any changes to the owner's investment or retained earnings. Therefore, the net effect of the transaction is id n n.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Determine the net effect of the transaction by keying in i = increased, d = decreased, n = no effect. Owner contributed some furniture to the business: Assets ___ = Liabilities ____ + Owner's Equity ____ State your answer in the box in this format, for example i n i  (This means Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect, and Owner's Equity increased. If Assets increased and decreased and Liabilities have no effect and Owner's Equity has no effect, the answer should be id n n).   

    Explanation
    The net effect of the transaction is that Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect, and Owner's Equity increased.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Determine the net effect of the transaction by keying in i = increased, d = decreased, n = no effect. Sold away motor vehicle on credit: Assets ___ = Liabilities ____ + Owner's Equity ____ State your answer in the box in this format, for example, i n i  (This means Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect, and Owner's Equity increased. If Assets increased and decreased and Liabilities have no effect and Owner's Equity has no effect, the answer should be id n n).   

    Explanation
    The transaction involves selling a motor vehicle on credit. This means that the assets of the company will decrease (d), as the vehicle is no longer owned by the company. There is no effect on liabilities (n), as the company has not taken on any new debts or obligations. However, the owner's equity will increase (i), as the company will receive payments from the credit sale. Therefore, the net effect of the transaction is id n n. Additionally, if there is another transaction where the company buys a new motor vehicle on credit, the assets will increase (i) as the company acquires a new asset, while liabilities and owner's equity will have no effect (n). Therefore, the net effect of this transaction is di n n.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Determine the net effect of the transaction by keying in i = increased, d = decreased, n = no effect. Repay a bank loan: Assets ___ = Liabilities ____ + Owner's Equity ____ State your answer in the box in this format, for example, i n i  (This means Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect, and Owner's Equity increased. If Assets increased and decreased and Liabilities have no effect and Owner's Equity has no effect, the answer should be id n n).   

    Explanation
    Repaying a bank loan would decrease both assets and liabilities, as the loan is a liability that is being paid off. However, it would have no effect on owner's equity, as this is not directly impacted by loan repayments. Therefore, the net effect of the transaction is a decrease in assets and liabilities, with no effect on owner's equity.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Bought equipment worth $10,000 on credit. 

    • A.

      Equipment decreased by $10,000 & Debtors decreased by $10,000

    • B.

      Equipment increased by $10,000 & Creditors increased by $10,000

    • C.

      Equipment decreased by $10,000 & Debtors increased by $10,000

    • D.

      Equipment increased by $10,000 & Bank loan increased by $10,000

    Correct Answer
    B. Equipment increased by $10,000 & Creditors increased by $10,000
    Explanation
    When equipment is bought on credit, it means that the company has acquired the equipment but has not yet paid for it. This results in an increase in the equipment asset account by $10,000 since the company now owns the equipment. At the same time, the company has incurred a liability to the creditor for the amount owed, resulting in an increase in the creditors account by $10,000.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Paid creditor $5,000. 

    • A.

      Creditors increased by $5,000 & Cash decreased by $5,000

    • B.

      Creditors decreased by $5,000 & Cash decreased by $5,000

    • C.

      Creditors increased by $5,000 & Cash increased by $5,000

    • D.

      Creditors decreased by $5,000 & Cash increased by $5,000

    Correct Answer
    B. Creditors decreased by $5,000 & Cash decreased by $5,000
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Creditors decreased by $5,000 & Cash decreased by $5,000." This is because when a creditor is paid, it means that the company is reducing its debt or liability to the creditor. Therefore, the amount owed to the creditor decreases by $5,000. At the same time, cash is also decreased by $5,000 as it is being used to make the payment to the creditor.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    The owner took some office equipment for personal use. 

    • A.

      Equipment increased & Capital increased

    • B.

      Equipment decreased & Capital increased

    • C.

      Equipment decreased & Capital decreased

    • D.

      Equipment increased & Capital decreased

    Correct Answer
    C. Equipment decreased & Capital decreased
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Equipment decreased & Capital decreased" because when the owner takes some office equipment for personal use, it means that the equipment is no longer a part of the business assets. As a result, the equipment decreases in value. Additionally, since the equipment was taken for personal use, it does not contribute to the capital of the business anymore, causing a decrease in capital as well.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Which accounting concept gives rise to the accounting equation? 

    • A.

      Historical cost

    • B.

      Going concern

    • C.

      Monetary concept

    • D.

      Accounting entity

    Correct Answer
    D. Accounting entity
    Explanation
    The accounting concept that gives rise to the accounting equation is the accounting entity concept. This concept states that a business is separate from its owners and other entities, and therefore its financial transactions should be recorded separately. The accounting equation, which states that assets equal liabilities plus equity, is based on this concept. It helps in accurately representing the financial position of the business and ensures that all transactions are recorded in a systematic and organized manner.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Which accounting theory states that all transactions must be recorded at their cost at the time the transaction takes place? 

    • A.

      Historical cost

    • B.

      Going concern

    • C.

      Monetary concept

    • D.

      Accounting entity

    Correct Answer
    A. Historical cost
    Explanation
    The accounting theory of historical cost states that all transactions must be recorded at their cost at the time the transaction takes place. This means that assets are recorded at their original cost, regardless of their current market value. This concept ensures that financial statements provide a reliable and objective representation of a company's financial position and performance. It also allows for consistency and comparability in financial reporting, as the historical cost is verifiable and less subject to manipulation or estimation.

    The correct answer is "Assets = Liabilities + Owner's Equity." This equation represents the fundamental principle of accounting, known as the accounting equation. It states that the total assets of a company are equal to the sum of its liabilities and owner's equity. This equation is used to ensure that the financial statements of a company are balanced and accurate.

    C. Assets
    Explanation

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Owner's Equity. Owner's Equity refers to the interest or claim that the owners have in a business. It represents the residual interest in the assets of the business after deducting liabilities. It is the amount of money that would be left for the owners if all the assets were sold and all the liabilities were paid off. Therefore, Owner's Equity represents the ownership value or net worth of the business.

  • 20. 

    Assets minus Liabilities equals to ________.

    Correct Answer
    Owners' Equity, Owner's Equity, Equity of owner, Equity of owners
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Owner's equity or Owners' Equity. This is because the formula Assets minus Liabilities equals Owners' Equity represents the basic accounting equation, which states that the value of a company's assets is equal to the sum of its liabilities and owners' equity. Owners' Equity represents the residual interest in the assets of the entity after deducting liabilities. It represents the ownership claim on the company's assets and is a measure of the owners' investment in the business.

  • 21. 

    Determine the net effect of the transaction by keying in i = increased, d = decreased, and n = no effect. Invested cash in a business: Assets ___ = Liabilities ____ + Owner's Equity ____ State your answer in the box in this format, for example, i n i  (This means Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect, and Owner's Equity increased.)   

    Correct Answer
    i n i, (Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect, and Owner's Equity increased)
    Explanation
    The correct answer i n i indicates that the transaction of investing cash in a business resulted in an increase in Assets and Owner's Equity, while Liabilities remained unaffected. This suggests that the cash investment contributed to the overall value of the business and the owner's ownership stake, without impacting any outstanding debts or obligations.

  • 23. 

    Determine the net effect of the transaction by keying in i = increased, d = decreased, n = no effect. Withdrew monies for personal use: Assets ___ = Liabilities ____ + Owner's Equity ____ State your answer in the box in this format, for example i n i  (This means Assets increased, Liabilities have no effect, and Owner's Equity increased. If Assets increased and decreased and Liabilities have no effect and Owner's Equity has no effect, the answer should be id n n).   

    Correct Answer
    d n d
    Explanation
    Withdrawing money for personal use decreases the assets of the business, as cash (an asset) is being taken out.
    There is no effect on liabilities because liabilities represent the obligations of the business to external parties, and withdrawing money for personal use does not affect those obligations.
    Owner's equity decreases because the owner is taking money out of the business, reducing the owner's claim on the assets.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Owner contributed $7,500 cash and $15,000 vehicle to the business. 

    • A.

      Cash increased by $7,500, Vehicle increased by $15,000 & Capital increased by $22,500

    • B.

      Cash increased by $7,500 & Capital increased by $7,500

    • C.

      Cash increased by $7,500, Vehicle increased by $15,000 & Capital increased by $7,500

    • D.

      Cash increased by $7,500, Vehicle increased by $15,000 & Capital decreased by $22,500

    Correct Answer
    A. Cash increased by $7,500, Vehicle increased by $15,000 & Capital increased by $22,500
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that Cash increased by $7,500, Vehicle increased by $15,000, and Capital increased by $22,500. This is because the owner contributed $7,500 in cash and $15,000 in a vehicle to the business, which results in an increase in both the Cash and Vehicle accounts. Additionally, since the owner's contribution is considered as an increase in the owner's equity, it is reflected as an increase in the Capital account. Therefore, all three accounts - Cash, Vehicle, and Capital - experience an increase in value.
