    The Profit and Loss Account is concerned with only the sales made during that year.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The Profit and Loss Account is not concerned with only the sales made during that year. It is a financial statement that summarizes the revenues, costs, and expenses incurred during a specific period of time, typically a year. It includes all the income and expenses, not just sales, to calculate the net profit or loss for the period. Therefore, the statement "The Profit and Loss Account is concerned with only the sales made during that year" is false.

    A source document is proof that a transaction has occurred. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A source document serves as evidence that a transaction has taken place. It provides details such as the date, amount, parties involved, and nature of the transaction. These documents can include invoices, receipts, purchase orders, bank statements, and contracts. By having source documents, businesses can maintain accurate and reliable records of their financial transactions, which is essential for proper bookkeeping and auditing purposes. Therefore, the statement that a source document is proof that a transaction has occurred is true.

  • 6. 

    The Day Books are sometimes called the Books of Secondary Entry.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The Day Books are not sometimes called the Books of Secondary Entry. This statement is false. The Day Books are actually known as the Books of Original Entry, as they are where transactions are first recorded before being transferred to the general ledger. The Books of Secondary Entry, on the other hand, refer to subsidiary books such as the Cash Book, Sales Book, and Purchase Book, where specific types of transactions are recorded before being summarized and posted to the general ledger.

      Sales Ledger

    • B.

      Purchase Ledger

    • C.

      Nominal Ledger

    Correct Answer
    C. Nominal Ledger
    Explanation
    The Nominal Ledger is a part of the accounting system that contains separate accounts for everything else, meaning accounts that do not relate to an individual. It is used to record all financial transactions that do not fall under the Sales Ledger or Purchase Ledger. This includes accounts such as expenses, revenues, assets, and liabilities. The Nominal Ledger helps in organizing and summarizing financial information for reporting and analysis purposes.

    At the end of a financial year, all accounts within the Ledgers are balanced so that the yearend figures are produced called ‘balances’. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    At the end of a financial year, it is standard practice to balance all accounts within the Ledgers. This process ensures that the yearend figures, known as "balances," are produced. Balancing the accounts involves reconciling the debits and credits and ensuring that all transactions are accurately recorded. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct as it accurately reflects the common practice of balancing accounts at the end of a financial year.

      Profit and Loss Account

    • B.

      Balance Sheet

    • C.

      Trial Balance

    Correct Answer
    A. Profit and Loss Account
    Explanation
    The Profit and Loss Account is a financial statement that provides information about the organization's financial performance during a specific period, usually a year. It shows the revenues, expenses, and resulting profit or loss. Therefore, it is the most appropriate choice to inform the user about how well the organization has performed in the last financial year. The Balance Sheet, on the other hand, presents the organization's financial position at a specific point in time, while the Trial Balance is a list of all the general ledger accounts with their respective debit or credit balances.
