This multiple-choice question is suitable for Accounting KS5 classes.

The answer is 2

  1. Not correct
  2. Correct – The twin effects of receiving money from debtors are that the bank balance will be increased when the money is lodged and the debtors owe less than they previously did. To increase an asset account (bank), that account must be debited (therefore, debit the bank account) and to decrease an asset account (debtors), that account must be credited (therefore credit the debtors’ control account).
  3. Not correct
  4. Not correct
