    • A.

      Office Supplies/Cash

    • B.

      Office Supplies/Accounts Receivable

    • C.

      Office Supplies/Accounts Payable

    Correct Answer
    C. Office Supplies/Accounts Payable
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Office Supplies/Accounts Payable because when office supplies are purchased on account, it means that the company has received the supplies but has not yet paid for them. Therefore, the transaction would be recorded as an increase in the Office Supplies account (an asset) and an increase in the Accounts Payable account (a liability) to reflect the amount owed to the supplier.

    • B.

    • C.

      Cash/Accounts Payable

    Correct Answer
    A. Sales/Accounts Receivable
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Sales/Accounts Receivable because when sales are charged to guests, it means that the guests will pay for the goods or services at a later date. This creates an account receivable, which represents the amount owed by the guests to the company. Therefore, the entry to record this transaction would involve debiting the Sales account to recognize the revenue and crediting the Accounts Receivable account to reflect the amount owed by the guests.
