Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    All profits go to the owner is an advantage of a sole proprietorship.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A sole proprietorship is a type of business structure where there is only one owner who has complete control over the business and its profits. Since the owner is the sole proprietor, all profits generated by the business go directly to them. This is an advantage because the owner gets to keep all the profits for themselves, without having to share it with any partners or shareholders. This can be financially beneficial for the owner as they have full control over how the profits are used or reinvested in the business.

    Correct Answer
    B. Mortgage
    Explanation
    A mortgage is an example of a liability because it represents a debt that an individual or organization owes to a lender. When someone takes out a mortgage to purchase a property, they are borrowing money and agreeing to make regular payments to repay the loan over a specific period of time. The mortgage is considered a liability because it is an obligation to repay the borrowed funds, and failure to make the required payments can result in consequences such as foreclosure or legal action by the lender.

    The accounting equation is ____________________

    • A.

      Revenue - expenses = Net income

    • B.

      Assets + Liabilities = Owner's Equity

    • C.

      Assets - Liabilities = Owner's Equity

    • D.

      Liabilities + Owner's Equity = Assets

    Correct Answer
    D. Liabilities + Owner's Equity = Assets
    Explanation
    The accounting equation states that the sum of a company's liabilities and owner's equity is equal to its total assets. This equation is the foundation of double-entry bookkeeping, which ensures that every financial transaction is recorded accurately and maintains the balance between the company's resources (assets) and its obligations (liabilities and owner's equity). By understanding this equation, businesses can assess their financial health and make informed decisions about their operations and investments.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. Owner's Equity represents the owner's claims to all the assets of the business, not just cash. It includes the owner's investment in the business, retained earnings, and any profits or losses. Owner's Equity is calculated by subtracting liabilities from the total assets of the business.

    The correct answer is Service, Merchandising, Manufacturing. These three options represent different types of businesses. Service businesses are those that provide intangible services to customers, such as consulting or accounting. Merchandising businesses involve buying and selling tangible goods, such as retail stores.

It represents the financial gain or benefit that a company or individual receives from their business activities. Revenue, on the other hand, refers to the total amount of money generated from sales or services before deducting any expenses. Income is a broader term that can encompass various sources of earnings, including wages, salaries, and investments.

    General Motors would not be considered a service business because it primarily manufactures and sells automobiles, which are tangible products, rather than providing intangible services. While they may offer some services such as maintenance and repairs, their main focus is on the production and sale of vehicles. On the other hand, North American Van Lines, Delta Airlines, and Alamo Rent A Car are all service businesses as they provide transportation services to customers.

In this type of business, there is only one owner who has complete control and receives all the profits. Additionally, the owner is personally liable for all the debts and obligations of the business. This form of organization is often chosen by small businesses or individuals starting out on their own due to its simplicity and low cost.

A sole proprietorship is a business owned and operated by a single individual. A partnership is a business owned and operated by two or more individuals who share the profits and liabilities. A corporation is a legal entity separate from its owners, with shareholders who own the company and a board of directors who manage its operations. These three forms represent the most common types of businesses and each has its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of liability, taxation, and decision-making.

    Correct Answer
    D. Provides a needed service for a fee
    Explanation
    A service business provides a needed service for a fee. This means that the business offers a specific service that is in demand by customers, and in return, they charge a fee for providing that service. Unlike businesses that produce and sell physical products, a service business focuses on delivering intangible services such as consulting, healthcare, or transportation. The revenue of a service business primarily comes from the fees charged for the services rendered, rather than from the sale of products.

This type of business does not involve baking bread or packaging it for grocery stores, nor does it involve the need for accountants. Instead, it focuses on the buying and reselling of already completed products.
