    C. C)Cash drew from bank for office use
    Explanation
    A contra entry refers to a transaction where both the debit and credit aspects of the entry are made in the same ledger account. In this case, cash is being withdrawn from the bank for office use. This means that the cash account will be debited (increased) as the cash is being received, and the bank account will be credited (decreased) as the cash is being withdrawn. Therefore, this transaction fits the criteria of a contra entry.

This liability will be recognized as an expense over the period in which the rent is earned.

Once the gross profit or loss is determined, it is transferred to the profit or loss account, which further includes other expenses and revenues to calculate the net profit or loss for a specific period. Therefore, the trading account is an essential step in preparing the profit or loss account.

    Explanation
    The balances in the trial balance are extracted from the ledger. The ledger is a book that contains all the accounts and their respective balances.

Therefore, option c) ledger is the correct answer.

    • B.

      B) uncreditedcheques

    • C.

      C) credit transfer

    • D.

      D) unpresentedcheques

    Correct Answer
    B. B) uncreditedcheques
    Explanation
    The cash book records all transactions related to cash, including both cash inflows and outflows. The debit side of the cash book represents cash outflows, while the credit side represents cash inflows. The bank statement, on the other hand, only shows the transactions that have been processed by the bank. Therefore, if there are items on the debit side of the cash book that are not found on the credit side of the bank statement, it means that these transactions have been recorded in the cash book but have not yet been processed by the bank. Uncredited cheques refer to those cheques that have been issued but not yet cleared by the bank, which explains why they are not found on the credit side of the bank statement.

    • C.

      C) Historical cost

      D) Going concern

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Consistency is not an accounting concept because it refers to a principle of reporting and presentation, rather than a fundamental concept. Consistency requires that accounting methods and practices remain the same over time, ensuring comparability and reliability of financial information. While consistency is important for accurate financial reporting, it is not considered a core accounting concept like entity, historical cost, and going concern, which are fundamental principles that guide the preparation and presentation of financial statements.

    • A.

      A) bulk purchases

    • B.

      B) prompt payment

    • C.

    • D.

      D) cash payment

    Correct Answer
    A. A) bulk purchases
    Explanation
    Trade discounts are given for bulk purchases because when a customer buys a large quantity of goods or services, the seller often offers a discount as an incentive.

This encourages customers to purchase more, helps the seller to increase sales volume, and can also help to build customer loyalty.

      D) network problem

    Correct Answer
    C. C) irregular signature
    Explanation
    A cheque could be dishonoured due to an irregular signature. This means that the signature on the cheque does not match the signature on file for the account holder. Banks use signatures as a way to verify the authenticity of a cheque and ensure that it is being authorized by the correct person. If the signature is irregular or does not match, it raises concerns about the validity of the cheque and can result in it being dishonoured.

    Assets and expenses are posted on which side of a trial balance

    • A.

      A) credit

    • B.

      B) debit

    • C.

      Detail

    • D.

      D) Total

    Correct Answer
    B. B) debit
    Explanation
    Assets and expenses are posted on the debit side of a trial balance. This is because the debit side represents the increase in assets and expenses. Assets are resources owned by a company, such as cash, inventory, and equipment. Expenses are the costs incurred by a company in its operations, such as salaries, rent, and utilities. By posting these items on the debit side, the trial balance ensures that the total debits equal the total credits, which is a key principle of double-entry accounting.
