    Which of the following is not encompassed within the just-in-time (JIT) philosophy?

    • A.

      Reduction in setup times

    • B.

      Multi-skilled workers

    • C.

      Zero defects 

    • D.

      Larger inventories

    Correct Answer
    D. Larger inventories
    Explanation
    Larger inventories are not encompassed within the just-in-time (JIT) philosophy. JIT focuses on minimizing waste, including excess inventory. The philosophy aims to have the right amount of inventory at the right time, reducing storage costs and the risk of obsolescence. By keeping inventory levels low, companies can improve efficiency, reduce lead times, and respond more effectively to customer demand. Therefore, larger inventories contradict the principles of JIT.

    Which of the following is not a source of cash?

    • A.

      Credit purchases

    • B.

       Short-term loans 

    • C.

      Capital injection

    • D.

      Long-term loan funding

    Correct Answer
    A. Credit purchases
    Explanation
    Credit purchases are not a source of cash because they involve purchasing goods or services on credit, which means that payment is deferred to a later date. In other words, cash is not immediately received when making credit purchases. On the other hand, short-term loans, capital injection, and long-term loan funding are all sources of cash as they involve receiving money either through borrowing or investment.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A company is correctly described as insolvent when it is unable to:

    • A.

      Pay staff bonuses

    • B.

      Pay its bills or meet its financial obligations on time 

    • C.

      Sell on credit.

    • D.

      Pay dividends

    Correct Answer
    B. Pay its bills or meet its financial obligations on time 
    Explanation
    Insolvency refers to a company's inability to pay its bills or meet its financial obligations on time. This means that the company is facing financial difficulties and does not have enough funds to fulfill its financial commitments. The other options mentioned, such as paying staff bonuses, selling on credit, and paying dividends, are not necessarily indicators of insolvency. While these activities may be impacted by the company's financial situation, they do not directly define insolvency.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of the following does not involve outflows of cash?

    • A.

      Payment of taxes

    • B.

      Credit sales 

    • C.

      Purchase of non-current assets

    • D.

      Purchase of inventories

    Correct Answer
    B. Credit sales 
    Explanation
    Credit sales do not involve outflows of cash because they represent sales made on credit, where the payment is expected to be received at a later date. In credit sales, the company extends credit to the customer, allowing them to purchase goods or services without immediate payment. The cash inflow will occur when the customer eventually makes the payment, but at the time of the credit sale, no cash is leaving the company.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following is not a cost of holding inventories?

    • A.

      Insurance

    • B.

      Bad debts

    • C.

      Storage and display 

    • D.

      Financing costs.

    Correct Answer
    B. Bad debts
    Explanation
    Bad debts are not a cost of holding inventories because they are associated with unpaid customer invoices, not with the physical storage or maintenance of inventory. Bad debts occur when customers fail to pay for the goods or services they have received, resulting in a loss for the company. This is a separate issue from inventory holding costs, which include expenses such as insurance, storage, and financing costs.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following items is not a cash flow item?

    • A.

      Payment of wages

    • B.

      Payment of creditors 

    • C.

      Depreciation charges

    • D.

      Receipts from debtors.

    Correct Answer
    C. Depreciation charges
    Explanation
    Depreciation charges are not a cash flow item because they do not involve the actual inflow or outflow of cash. Depreciation is a non-cash expense that represents the decrease in value of an asset over time. It is recorded to allocate the cost of the asset over its useful life, but it does not involve any cash transaction. Therefore, it is not considered a cash flow item in financial statements.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following involves a two-way flow of cash?

    • A.

      Debt finance

    • B.

      Payment of wages

    • C.

       Payment of taxes 

    • D.

      Payment of creditors

    Correct Answer
    A. Debt finance
    Explanation
    Debt finance involves a two-way flow of cash because it refers to borrowing money from a lender, such as a bank or financial institution, in exchange for a promise to repay the borrowed amount with interest over a specific period of time. This means that the borrower receives cash from the lender, creating an inflow of cash, and then the borrower is required to make regular payments to the lender, resulting in an outflow of cash. Therefore, debt finance involves a two-way flow of cash.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following is not a type of inventory?

    • A.

      Raw materials 

    • B.

      Accounts receivable

    • C.

      Work in progress

    • D.

      Finished goods

    Correct Answer
    B. Accounts receivable
    Explanation
    Accounts receivable is not considered a type of inventory because it represents the amount of money that a company is owed by its customers for goods or services already provided. It is classified as a current asset on the balance sheet, but it does not involve physical goods that are held by the company for sale or production. Instead, it represents the company's right to receive payment from its customers in the future.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Efficient credit collection

    • A.

      Increases the value of debtors 

    • B.

      Reduces the value of creditors

    • C.

      Reduces the value of debtors.

    • D.

      Increases credit sales

    Correct Answer
    C. Reduces the value of debtors.
    Explanation
    Efficient credit collection refers to the process of collecting outstanding debts from customers in a timely and effective manner. When credit collection is efficient, it reduces the value of debtors. This means that the amount of money owed by customers decreases, resulting in a lower value of debtors on the company's balance sheet. By reducing the value of debtors, the company can improve its cash flow and financial position.
