Rs.1, 20,000.
(a) Rs.24000
(b) Rs.30,000
(c) Rs.20,000
(d) None of the above
The rate of gross profit = 20% on sales, So, If sale is 100, profit is 20 (20%). So, cost is 100-20=80. So, profit ratio on Cost is 20/80 = 1/4 i.e 1/4th of cost
Hence, the amount of gross profit = Cost of good sold x (1/4) = Rs.1,20,000 x (1/4) = Rs.30,000
Hence option (b) is correct.
2. Opening Stock= Rs. 8,500, Purchases= Rs. 30,700, Direct Expenses= Rs. 4,800, Indirect Expenses = Rs. 5,200, Closing Stock= Rs. 9,000, Calculate Cost of goods sold
(a) Rs.30,000
(b) Rs.35,000 √
(c) Rs.32,000
(d) Rs.40,000
Cost of good sold = (Opening stock + purchases + only direct expenses – closing stock)
i.e. Rs.(8,500 + 30,700 + 4,800 – 9,000) = Rs.35,000. Hence option (b) is correct.
3. A company wishes to earn a 20% profit margin on selling price ———- is the profit marks up on cost, which will achieve the required profit margin?
(a) 33%
(b) 25%
(c) 20%
(d) None of the above.
Company earn 20% profit on sales, If sale is 100, profit is 20 (20%). So, cost is 100-20=80. So, profit ratio on cost is 20/80 = 1/4 i.e 1/4th of cost = (1/4) x 100% = 25%. Hence option (b) is correct.
4. Capital introduced in beginning by Ram Rs.40, 000. Further capital introduced during the year Rs.1, 000. Drawings Rs.200 per month and closing capital is Rs.53, 600. The amount of profit and loss for the year is:
(a) Rs.15, 000 Profit.
(b) Rs.5,000 Loss
(c) Rs.20,000 Profit
(d) Can’t say.
Opening capital + Capital introduced + Profit – Drawings = Closing Capital
So, Profit = Closing Capital – Capital introduced + Drawings – opening capital
= Rs.[53600 – 1,000 + (200 x 12) – 40,000] = Rs.( 53,600 – 41,000 + 2,400 ) = Rs.15,000
Hence option (a) is correct.
5. Sundry Debtors on 31st March, 2006 are Rs.55, 200. Further Bad Debts are Rs.200:
Provisions for doubtful debts are to be made on debtors @ 5% and also provision of discount is to be made on debtors @ 2%. The amount of provision for discount on debtors will be:

(a) Rs.1,045
(b) Rs.2,750
(c) Rs.1,100
(d) None of the above
Net Sundry Debtor = 55,200 (Total Debtor) – 200 Bad Debts = 55,000
Provision for doubtful debts @ 5% = 5% of 55,000= 2750
So, provision for discount = 2% of (55,000-2750) = 2% of 52250=1045. Hence option (a) is correct.
(b) Profit & Loss Account
(c) Debtors Account
(d) Provision for bad debts account.
The journal entry for previous for bad debts is

(a) Rs.36,000
(b) Rs.18,000
(c) Rs.42,000
(d) Rs.38,000
Gross profit = (Sales during the year + closing stock) – (Purchases during the year + all direct expenses i.e. freight) = Rs.(1,20,000 + 12,000) – (90,000 + 6,000) = Rs.1,32,000 – 96,000 = Rs.36,000 (profit). So, option (a) is correct
8. Sundry debtors of M/S Santosh amount to Rs.25, 000 and bad debts Rs.3, 000. They provide for doubtful debts @ 2% and for discount @ 1% the amount of net debtors to be shown in the balance sheet will be:
(a) Rs.21,000
(b) Rs.22,000
(c) Rs.21,780
(d) Rs.21, 344.
Net debtors = 25000 (Total Debtors) – 3000 (Bad Debts) = 22,000
Provision for doubtful debts = 2% of 22000=440
Provision for Discount on Debtors = 2% of (22000-440) = 1% of 21560=216.
So, net amount of Debtors in Balance Sheet would be 21560-216=21344. Hence option (d) is correct

Company earn 20% profit on sales, i.e. 20/100 = 1/5 on sales
If sale is 100, profit is 20 (20%). So, cost is 100-20=80. So, profit ratio on sale is 20/80 = 1/4 i.e 1/4th of cost = (1/4) x 100% = 25%. So, profit = 15,00,000 x (1/4) = 3,75,000
So, Sales is 15,00,000+3,75,000 = 18,75,000, Hence option (b) is correct

(a) Rs.220
(b) Rs.200
(c) Rs.240
(d) Rs.24,444
Let us suppose C= Commission, P=Profit. So C= (P-C) /10. Or Cx10 = P-C, or 11XC = P, So, 2200= 11 x C. Or C= 2200/11 = 200. Hence option (d) is correct.
20. if profits are 25% of the selling price, what is the percentage of profit on cost price?
(a) 20%
(b) 25%
(c) 30%
(d) 33.33%
P= Sx25/100=S/4, S=C+P , So S= C+ S/4. or, C= S- S/4, or C=3S/4, So, ratio of Profit to Cost = S/4 : 3S/4 = 1:3 = 100 / 3% = 33.33 %. Hence option (d) is correct.
