    A technique for finding an error could be

    • A.

      Just recalculate everything

    • B.

    Using a fresh set of eyes is a technique for finding an error because it involves having someone else review the work or problem. This person, who has not been previously involved in the process, can provide a new perspective and potentially spot mistakes or inconsistencies that may have been overlooked. By bringing in someone with a fresh perspective, it increases the chances of identifying errors and finding a solution.

    Explanation
    Petty cash is a small amount of cash kept on hand by a business for making small, everyday expenses.

Since the amount is small and relates to a regular business expense, it is appropriate to use petty cash for this purpose. Therefore, the given answer, "True," is correct.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The cash flow statement does not list the amount of money owed to the practice. It provides information about the inflows and outflows of cash during a specific period, including operating activities, investing activities, and financing activities. The statement focuses on cash movements and does not specifically address amounts owed to the practice. Therefore, the given statement is false.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Invoices should be checked for accuracy because it is important to ensure that the items or services listed on the invoice match what was actually received or provided. Checking for accuracy helps to prevent errors or discrepancies in billing and payment, and ensures that the correct amount is being charged or paid. It also helps to identify any potential fraudulent or incorrect charges, and allows for proper record-keeping and reconciliation of financial transactions. Therefore, it is necessary to check invoices for accuracy to maintain financial integrity and transparency.

    A. True
    Explanation
    Bookkeeping is indeed the daily recording process for accounting. It involves keeping track of financial transactions, such as income, expenses, and investments, in order to maintain accurate and up-to-date financial records. This process is crucial for businesses to monitor their financial health, make informed decisions, and fulfill legal requirements. Therefore, the statement "Bookeeping is the daily recording process for accounting" is true.

  • 7. 

    What are the two methods of accounting

    • A.

      Cash basis and Actual basis

    • B.

      Charge basis and Account basis

    • C.

      Cash basis and Accrual basis

    • D.

      Charge basis and Actual basis

    Correct Answer
    C. Cash basis and Accrual basis
    Explanation
    The two methods of accounting are cash basis and accrual basis. Cash basis accounting records revenue and expenses when cash is received or paid, respectively. This method is simple and straightforward but may not accurately reflect the financial position of a company. Accrual basis accounting, on the other hand, records revenue and expenses when they are earned or incurred, regardless of when cash is received or paid. This method provides a more accurate representation of a company's financial position but requires more complexity in tracking transactions.

  • 10. 

    The fiscal year is a twelve month period of time that can start any month of the year.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the fiscal year is indeed a twelve-month period of time that can start in any month of the year. Unlike the calendar year which always starts on January 1st and ends on December 31st, the fiscal year is used by businesses and organizations to determine their financial reporting and budgeting cycles. It allows them to align their financial activities with the specific needs and demands of their industry, rather than being restricted to a fixed calendar period. Therefore, the statement "The fiscal year is a twelve-month period of time that can start any month of the year" is true.

By offering money orders, post offices ensure that individuals have a reliable and accessible option for conducting financial transactions.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Personal checking accounts and business accounts do not have the same benefits. Personal checking accounts are meant for individual use and typically offer benefits such as no monthly fees, low minimum balance requirements, and access to mobile banking. On the other hand, business accounts are designed for businesses and may come with features like payroll processing, merchant services, and business-specific perks. Therefore, the statement that personal checking accounts and business accounts have the same benefits is false.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "When the bank uses your money they charge interest to the account" is false. Banks do not charge interest to the account when they use your money.

This means that the funds are secure and not at risk of being lost or stolen during the deposit process.

Additionally, checks offer a convenient way to make payments, whether they are large or small, without the need for carrying cash or making online transfers.

    Online banking offers the convenience of banking 24/7 but still has deadlines for some financial transactions

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Online banking provides the convenience of accessing banking services at any time, allowing customers to perform various financial transactions such as transferring funds, paying bills, and checking account balances. However, despite the round-the-clock availability, there are still certain deadlines associated with specific transactions. For example, transferring funds to another bank account may have a cut-off time after which the transaction will be processed on the next business day. Similarly, bill payments may have due dates, and if not made before the deadline, late fees or penalties may be incurred. Therefore, the statement that online banking has deadlines for some financial transactions is true.
