  1. Not Correct
  2. Not Correct
  3. Initial annual depreciation = (£10,000 – £0) / 10 = £1,000 p.a.
    Aggregate depreciation to 31 December 1994 = £1,000 p.a. * 2 years = £2,000
    Net Book Value (NBV) at 1 January 1995 = £10,000 – £2,000 = £8,000
    Revised annual depreciation = £8,000 / 5 = £1,600 p.a.
