Question 1 - CMA 692 3.9 - Planning and Budgeting Concepts


A. The cash management and working capital budgets are the last budgets prepared. This is because they are
dependent upon all of the other budgets since the production budget, advertising budget, overhead budget,
and so on all have a cash component that is reflected in the cash budget and the working capital budget. The
cash budget and working capital budgets are therefore prepared last, because all of the other budgets
contribute to them.
B. The capital investment budget is a long-term budget that is outside of the normal, annual budgeting process. The
effect of budgeted current period expenditures for capital assets will need to be taken into account in the development
of the master budget, since they will affect the balance sheet, income statement, and cash flows. However, the capital
invesstment budget is not the final budget prepared in preparation of the comprehensive master budget.
C. The master budget is an annual budget. The quantitative effect of strategic plans, which are long-term plans for
periods of more than five years, must be integrated into the annual budgeting process, as well as into the capital
budgeting process. As such, strategic planning precedes the development of the annual budget.
D. The production budget is a part of the operating budget. The operating budget is part of the master budget. The
master budget is a comprehensive expression of management's operating and financial plans for a future time period
(usually a year) that is summarized in a set of budgeted financial statements. It embraces the impact of both operating
and financing decisions.

Question 3 - CMA 1294 3.9 - Budget Methodologies


A. Gross profit (gross margin) is equal to sales minus cost of goods sold. Thus, gross profit cannot be greater than the
amount of sales, and sales are budgeted at $520,000 for December. See the correct answer for a complete
explanation.
B.
This is not the correct answer. Please see the correct answer for a complete explanation.
We have been unable to determine how to calculate this incorrect answer choice. If you have calculated it, please let

materials better.
C. Gross profit (gross margin) is equal to sales minus cost of goods sold. December sales are projected to be
$520,000. Cost of goods sold is 80% of sales. Thus, the projected gross profit is 20% of sales, or $104,000.
D. This is the cost of goods sold for December. Gross profit (gross margin) is equal to sales minus cost of goods sold.

Question 4 - CIA 590 IV.12 - Budget Methodologies


A. This answer does not consider the fact that 2 pounds of raw materials are needed to produce one unit of finished
product. See the correct answer for a complete explanation.
B.
Since no materials inventory is kept on hand, the amount of materials purchased each month is equal to the
production requirements. Thus, the first thing we need to determine is the finished goods production in
January by using the formula of the physical flow of goods: Beginning Inventory + Units Produced Units
Sold = Ending Inventory.
Finished goods inventory is equal to 25% of the following month's budgeted sales. January sales are
budgeted at 10,000 units. Thus, the ending finished goods inventory for December, which is the same as the
beginning inventory for January, will be 25% of 10,000, or 2,500 units. February sales are budgeted at 12,000
units, so the ending inventory for January will be 25% of 12,000, or 3,000 units.
Plugging the numbers for finished goods into the formula we get: 2,500 + Units Produced 10,000 = 3,000.
Solving for Units Produced, we get Units Produced = 10,500.
Since the company makes payment the month after the purchase, January raw material purchases will be
paid in February. Now we can determine the cash outlay for raw materials in February: 10,500 units 2 lb.
$4.00 = $84,000.
C. This is the number of raw material purchases in January in pounds. See the correct answer for a complete
explanation.
D. This is the 10,000 units to be sold during January multiplied by $4 per pound of raw materials. This is incorrect for
two reasons: (1) It does not consider beginning and ending inventories of finished goods, which will affect the number
(c) HOCK international, page 18

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


of units to be produced during the month; and (2) It does not consider that 2 pounds of raw materials are required to
produce each unit of finished goods.

Question 5 - CMA 697 3.11 - Planning and Budgeting Concepts


A. A change to a decentralized management system is an internal factor.
B. The implementation of a new bonus program is an internal factor.
C. New product development is an internal factor.
D. In developing a budget, internal and external factors are considered and assumptions about those factors
are made. Internal factors are the factors that take place inside the organization, external factors are those
outside of company's direct control. Some of the external factors are: state of economy, government
regulations, labor market, competitor's activities including mergers and acquisitions. Thus, the merger of two
competitors is an external factor that should be considered in the development of a budget.

Question 6 - CMA 689 5.30 - Risk, Uncertainty and Expected Value


A.
To determine the price that a company would pay for perfect information, we compare the maximum expected
profit that the company could achieve with perfect information with the best expected profit that could be
achieved if they had to choose one level when demand is not known.
With perfect information the company would be able to choose the correct level of supply for each of the
levels of demand. Therefore, given that for each level of demand the company will choose the best supply
alternative, the expected value is $68 [($0 0.1) + ($40 0.3) + ($80 0.4) + ($120 0.2)].
Without having perfect information, if the company provided a supply of 0 units, its expected profit would be
0. If it supplied 2 units, the expected profit would be $28 [($80 0.1) + ($40 0.9)]. If it supplied 4 units, the
expected profit would be $20 [($160 0.1) + ($40 0.3) + ($80 0.6)]. If it supplied 6 units, the expected
profit would actually be a loss of $36 [($240 0.1) + ($120 0.3) + ($120 0.2)]. So, without perfect
information the best that the company can do is an expected profit of $28.
Since perfect information would provide an expected profit of $68 and the best the company can do without
perfect information is $28, the company would pay $40 (the difference) for the perfect information.
B. This is the expected profit with perfect information minus the expected profit from supplying 4 units, the demand
level with the highest probability of occurring. See the correct answer for a complete explanation.
C. This is the difference between the expected profit with perfect information and the expected loss at the supply level
of 6 units, the lowest expected payoff without perfect information. See the correct answer for a complete explanation.
D. This is the amount of expected profit with perfect information. This is not the price one is willing to pay for the
perfect information. See the correct answer for a complete explanation.

Question 7 - ICMA 10.P1.081 - Budget Methodologies


(c) HOCK international, page 19

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


A.
Collections will be as follows during March:
March cash sales - $250,000 0.60
$150,000
Collected from March credit sales - $250,000 0.40 0.50
50,000
Collected from February credit sales - $240,000 0.40 .030 28,800
13,200
Collected from January credit sales - $220,000 0.40 0.15
Total receipts for March
$242,000
B.
This answer results from reducing the credit sale collections by 5% of credit sales before calculating the percentage of
credit sales collected. (For example, 50% of March credit sales collected in March is calculated incorrectly as
$250,000 0.40 0.95 0.050.)
This is incorrect because the problem gives the total percentage of credit sales that will ultimately be collected, and
that percentage is 95% (50% + 30% + 15%). The 5% that will be uncollectible has already been removed from the
amounts that will be collectible. Therefore, reducing each individual collected amount by 5% is a duplication. For
example, 50% of March credit sales collected in March should be calculated as $250,000 0.40 0.50.
C.
This is not the correct answer. Please see the correct answer for an explanation.
We have been unable to determine how to calculate this incorrect answer choice. If you have calculated it, please let
us know how you did it so we can create a full explanation of why this answer choice is incorrect. Please send us an
email at support@hockinternational.com. Include the full Question ID number and the actual incorrect answer choice
-- not its letter, because that can change with every study session created. The Question ID number appears in the
upper right corner of the ExamSuccess screen. Thank you in advance for helping us to make your HOCK study
materials better.
D.
This is total March sales multiplied by the percentage of March credit sales collected during March plus total February
sales multiplied by the percentage of February credit sales collected during March plus total January sales multiplied
by the percentage of January credit sales collected during March.
This answer neglects two things: (1) Sales made on credit each month are only 40% of the total sales. Therefore,
each month's sales should be multiplied by 0.40 before multiplying it by the percentage of the month's receivables to
be collected during March. (2) 60% (100% 40% credit sales) of each month's sales are cash sales, so 60% of the
total sales for March will be received during March.

Question 8 - ICMA 08.P2.041 - Budget Methodologies


A. This answer results from multiplying the total budgeted cost per unit for August ($15.90) by the 260,000 units to be
produced in September. Because the fixed costs will be constant for both months (fixed for the range of 200,000 to
300,000 units), the total fixed cost in September should be the same as the total fixed cost in August. Also, the cost of
the batch setups will differ on a per unit basis, because it is not possible to set up a fraction of a batch at a fraction of
the batch setup cost. The batch setup cost is the same per batch regardless of how many units are in the batch, which
will cause a slight variation in the per unit cost from one month month to the next. See the correct answer for a full
explanation.
B.

(c) HOCK international, page 20

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


The normal batch size is 50,000 units, and the company plans production to minimize the total number of
batches. Therefore, in budgeting we will use 50,000 units per batch, not the lower amounts the company has
historically produced in some months.
For September, 260,000 units are scheduled to be produced, which will require six batches (260,000 50,000
= 5.2). It is not possible to set up a fraction of a batch, so we round up to 6. To find the budgeted setup cost
per batch for September, we use the August amounts given in the problem. 220,000 units were budgeted for
August at a total batch setup cost of $880,000. 220,000 50,000 units per batch = 4.4 batches. So five batches
would have been set up, and the setup cost per batch budgeted in August was $880,000 5, or $176,000 per
batch. Thus, the total batch setup cost for September will be budgeted at $176,000 6 batches, or $1,056,000.
Total budgeted costs for September are:
Variable cost: 260,000 units $6.40 = $1,664,000.
Fixed cost: given in the problem as $1,210,000 for August when production was budgeted at 220,000 units.
The problem says that the fixed costs are unchanged within a production range of 200,000 to 300,000, so the
August fixed cost also applies to a production level of 260,000 units for September.
Setup cost is $1,056,000, as calculated above.
The total budgeted production cost for September is $1,664,000 + $1,210,000 + $1,056,000 = $3,930,000.
C. This answer results from two errors: (1) adjusting the fixed costs for the increased level of production and (2)
keeping the setup costs constant at $880,000. The problem tells us that fixed costs are unchanged within a production
range of 200,000 to 300,000 units per month, so fixed costs for September should remain at $1,210,000 for a volume
of 260,000 units. The batch setup cost will increase for September, as the additional units to be produced in
September will require an additional setup. Using 50,000 as the number of units per batch, we will need 4.4 batches in
August (rounded up to 5 batches) and 5.2 batches in September (rounded up to 6 batches). The September batch
setup cost should be calculated by dividing the August setup cost by 5 and multiplying that by the 6 batches required
in September.
D. The calculation of the variable and fixed costs is correct, but the cost used for setup cost in September is the same
as August's setup cost. Because the number of units produced increases from August to September, the number of
batches will also increase and therefore the cost of batch setups will increase in total. During August, 220,000
50,000, or 4.4 batches were planned. In September, 260,000 50,000, or 5.2 batches were planned. Obviously, it is
not possible to set up a partial batch for a fraction of the cost of setting up a full batch. Therefore, the budgeted batch
setup cost for August would include 5 batch setups while the budgeted batch setup cost for September would include
6 batch setups. The September batch setup cost should be calculated by dividing the August setup cost by 5 and
multiplying that by the 6 batches required in September.

Question 9 - CMA 695 H6 - Budget Methodologies


A. This is the amount needed for production in August. See the correct answer for a complete explanation.
B. This answer does not include the units needed for ending inventory. See the correct answer for a complete
explanation.
C.
This answer results from including 100% of the September production requirement of raw materials in the August
ending inventory instead of only 60% of September's production requirement.
D.

(c) HOCK international, page 21

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


The basic equation for materials inventory is: Beginning Inventory + Units Purchased Units Used = Ending
Inventory. Inventory at the end of each month (and thus the beginning of the next month) needs to be at least
60% of the next month's planned usage. We already know the beginning inventory on August 1, because the
July 31 ending inventory is given in the problem as 4,200 units. The ending inventory for August needs to be
60% of September's planned usage of 1,800 tables 4 legs, which is 4,320. The number of units to be used
during the month of August will be the planned production of 1,600 4, or 6,400.
Therefore, the equation to solve is: 4,200 + P 6,400 = 4,320.
Solving for P, we get P = 4,320 4,200 + 6,400 and P = 6,520.

Question 10 - CMA 688 5.25 - Probability


A. 10% is the probability that S104 will be selected by a customer.
B. The probability that a customer will select a P104 is given.
C. In the question 10 random numbers, 0 to 9, are used. 0 and 1 (2 numbers in total) represent customers who
choose a P104. There are 10 numbers in total. Therefore, the probability that a customer will select a P104 is 2
out of 10, or 2 10, which is 20%.
D. 50% is the probability that a customer will select X104.

Question 11 - CMA 697 4.22 - Risk, Uncertainty and Expected Value


A. Cost of goods sold averages 80% of sales. In order to determine the expected value of cost of goods sold,
we first need to calculate the expected value for sales. Cost of goods sold will be equal to 80% of the sales
value. The expected sales can be calculated by multiplying each of the possible outcomes by the probability
that it will occur and adding the products together. When we do this, we get $84,000 as the expected sales
[($60,000 0.25) + ($85,000 0.4) + ($100,000 0.35)]. The expected value of cost of goods sold is 80% of this,
or $67,200.
B. $68,000 is the cost of goods sold calculated using the sales estimate with the highest probability level.
C. $85,000 is the sales estimate with the highest probability level. The problem asks for the expected value of Philip's
budgeted cost of goods sold.
D. $84,000 is the expected value for sales in 2013. The problem asks for the expected value of Philip's budgeted cost
of goods sold.

Question 12 - CMA 693 3.29 - Performance Measures


A. This question asks which of these allocation methods would lead to negative (dysfunctional) behavior on the part of
managers. By not allowing cost overruns in the service departments to be passed to other departments, this will
motivate the service departments to control their costs.
B. This question asks which of these allocation methods would lead to negative (dysfunctional) behavior on the part of
managers. The allocation of costs based on usage is a reasonable method for the allocation of these costs.
(c) HOCK international, page 22

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


C. This question asks which of these allocation methods would lead to negative (dysfunctional) behavior on
the part of managers. If a division receives more allocated costs for increased levels of sales, this will serve
as a minor demotivator for the manager of the divisions. Also, using ROI to measure divisional performance is
probably not the best method since the denominator in ROI will include things that are outside the control of
the divisional managers. Furthermore, use of ROI to evaluate divisional performance could lead to managers'
rejecting profitable new investments because their ROI is lower than the divisions' historical ROI and could
bring down future ROI.
D. This question asks which of these allocation methods would lead to negative (dysfunctional) behavior on the part of
managers. By allocating costs equal to a market value of the services provided, the management of the divisions will
use the services in the necessary manner.

Question 13 - CMA 1292 3.22 - Responsibility Centers and Reporting Segments


A. The difference between segment manager performance and segment performance is noncontrollable fixed costs
that are traceable. Direct variable costs of production are included in both measures.
B. The difference between segment manager performance and segment performance is noncontrollable fixed costs
that are traceable. Unallocated fixed costs are not used in either measure.
C. The difference between segment manager performance and segment performance is noncontrollable fixed
costs that are traceable. These are fixed costs that are controlled by others.
D. The difference between segment manager performance and segment performance is noncontrollable fixed costs
that are traceable. Direct fixed costs controlled by the segment manager are included in both measures.

Question 14 - ICMA 10.P1.101 - Manufacturing Input Variances -- Materials and Labor


A.
A companys "value chain" is its chain of activities for transforming inputs into the outputs that customers
value. This process of transformation includes all of the primary activities (business functions) that add value
to the product or service, as well as support activities. It involves functions from R&D through production to
marketing and sales, and on to customer service, including the activities that play supporting roles such as
information systems, materials management, and human resources.
When a company has a favorable labor price (rate) variance, it is because the company has paid hourly wage
rates that are lower than the standard wage rates. Usually, that occurs when the company has employed
workers who are less qualified than the workers they expected to have. Use of less qualified workers can lead
to a higher probability that the products produced and sold will be of lower quality and have more defects.
Lower quality products and higher defective rates will lead to increased costs for customer service, as the
customers who buy the products will have more difficulty with them. It can also lead to higher warranty costs,
because more products will need to be repaired or replaced for customers during the warranty period.
The amount gained from the favorable labor price variance, and possibly even more, may be lost through
greater unfavorable variances further down the value chain.
B. A direct labor price variance is not caused by actual production volume being less than budgeted production
volume.
C. There is no reason to believe that circumstances giving rise to the favorable variance will not continue in th future.
(c) HOCK international, page 23

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


D. The labor efficiency variance measures whether human resources are being used efficiently. The labor price (rate)
variance does not.

Question 15 - ICMA 10.P1.129 - Responsibility Centers and Reporting Segments


A.
The problem does not say whether the Green Division is operating at capacity or whether it has excess capacity
adequate to produce the internal order. This answer choice would be correct only if Green Division has excess
capacity. If Green Division does not have excess capacity, we need to include the opportunity cost of lost sales as
another cost that needs to be covered by the internal order. Since we don't know the status of Green Division's
capacity, we cannot state that the corporate policy would encourage this action from Green.
B. If Green Division is operating at full capacity, it will have an opportunity cost for lost sales as another cost that
would need to be covered by the internal order. The opportunity cost would be the contribution margin that the lost
sales would have provided. Green Division would not accept the sale to Red Division because doing so would cause
Green Division's profits to decrease.
C. The problem does not say whether the Green Division is operating at capacity or whether it has excess capacity
adequate to produce the internal order. This answer choice would be correct only if Green Division is operating at
capacity and thus would have an opportunity cost to accept the internal order. Since we don't know the status of
Green Division's capacity, we cannot state that the corporate policy would encourage this action from Green.
D. If the Green Division does not have to give up any external sales in order to produce the order for Red
Division, it will sell the product to the Red Division at the company's internal sales price of cost plus 10%,
even though the markup on the sale will not be as great as that of a sale to an external customer would be.
Since the Green Division does not have an external customer to use the excess capacity, the internal sale will
add to Green Division's operating income. Green Division's operating income will be higher under the
circumstances if it accepts the internal sale at the lower profit margin than if it turns it down.

Question 16 - ICMA 10.P1.124 - Responsibility Centers and Reporting Segments


A. Any transfer price that is imposed on the managers of the two divisions may not be acceptable to one or both
managers.
B. Any transfer price that is imposed on the managers of the two divisions may not be acceptable to one or both
managers.
C. The best process for establishing a transfer price between different divisions is for the managers of the
respective divisions to negotiate the price. The best price is usually the market price when a market price
exists, but that still needs to be acceptable to both division managers. And if the market price is not
acceptable to one or both managers for some reason, a different price should be negotiated (without violating
any tax laws of the countries and/or other taxing jurisdictions involved.
D. Any transfer price that is imposed on the managers of the two divisions may not be acceptable to one or both
managers.

Question 17 - CIA 1189 IV.17 - Manufacturing Input Variances -- Materials and Labor
(c) HOCK international, page 24

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


A. The labor rate variance is calculated as follows: (Actual Rate Standard Rate) Actual Hours. The actual
labor rate was $8.70 ($27,840 3,200). The standard labor rate was $8. The actual hours is 3,200. The labor
rate variance is ($8.70 $8.00) 3,200 unfavorable. The actual labor rate was greater than the standard labor
rate, so the variance is unfavorable.
B. This is the direct labor efficiency variance. The question asks for the direct labor rate variance.
C. The actual labor rate was greater than the standard labor rate, so the variance is unfavorable.
D. This is the difference of actual labor cost of $27,840 and the standard labor cost for the scheduled level of
production of $24,000 ($8 2.5 hours 1,200 units). Furthermore, the actual labor rate was greater than the standard
labor rate, so the variance is unfavorable.

Question 18 - ICMA 10.P1.222 - Shared Service Cost Allocation


A.
The dual-rate allocation method can be used with either the direct method, the step-down method, or the reciprocal
method of cost allocations. It simply means that fixed costs and variable costs are allocated separately. There is
nothing about the dual-rate method that necessarily either recognizes or does not recognize the mutual services
rendered by support departments to other support departments.
B. The direct allocation method does not recognize the mutual services rendered by support departments to other
support departments at all. The reciprocal method is the only service cost allocation method that recognizes all of the
services that are provided by the service departments to the other service departments.
C.
The step-down allocation method recognizes some but not all of the mutual services rendered by support departments
to other support departments. The reciprocal method is the only service cost allocation method that recognizes all of
the services that are provided by the service departments to the other service departments.
D. The reciprocal method is the only service cost allocation method that recognizes all of the services that are
provided by the service departments to the other service departments. Therefore, it is the method that best
recognizes the mutual services rendered by support departments to other support department.

D. This could detract from gaining and sustaining competitive advantage.

Question 20 - CIA 1185 IV.11 - Joint Products and Byproducts


A. This answer results from using the sales value after further processing, net of further processing costs, for Product
X to allocate the joint cost. However, since Product X can be sold at the splitoff point, its sales value at the splitoff
point should be used to allocate the joint cost. Net realizable value of one product and the sales value at splitoff for the
other product can be used if the first product has no sales value at splitoff because it cannot be sold at splitoff. But
whenever a product can be sold at the splitoff point, that sales value at the splitoff point should be used for allocating
the joint cost, even if the product will be processed further.
B. This is how much would be allocated if the joint costs were allocated equally.
C. This is the total amount of joint costs that need to be allocated.
D.
The net realizable value method is generally used instead of the sales value at splitoff method only when
selling prices for one or more products at splitoff do not exist. Since both products do have sales prices at
the splitoff point, we use their relative sales values at the splitoff point in order to allocate the joint costs,
even though one product will be processed further.
Using the relative sales value method, we will allocate the $10,000 of joint costs to the different products.
Since product X has a sales value at splitoff of $12,000 and Y has a sales value at splitoff of $8,000, the total
sales value is $20,000. 60% of this is from product X, so product X will receive 60%, or $6,000, of the joint
costs.

Question 21 - CMA 1295 3.23 - Overhead Allocation


A. Overhead was overapplied, but this would be a credit balance in the account.
B. There would be a credit balance in the account, but this would represent an overapplied amount, not an
underapplied amount.
C. This is incorrect because the account balance would be a credit and this would represent an overapplied amount.
D. When the actual costs were incurred, the factory overhead account was debited for $132,000. When the
overhead was applied, the account was credited for $140,000 (70% of the $200,000 labor cost). This leaves a
credit balance of $8,000 in the account and this represents an overapplied amount since the applied overhead
was greater than the actual overhead incurred.

Question 22 - ICMA 10.P1.217 - Shared Service Cost Allocation
A. The management of ROX Company wishes to encourage all other departments to use the legal department when it
is needed and not refrain from calling them because they know they will be charged. Allocating the legal costs on any
basis would encourage the user departments to limit their use of the legal department, possibly to the corporation's
detriment.
B. The management of ROX Company wishes to encourage all other departments to use the legal department when it
is needed and not refrain from calling them because they know they will be charged. Allocating the legal costs on any

detriment.
C. The management of ROX Company wishes to encourage all other departments to use the legal department
when it is needed and not refrain from calling them because they know they will be charged. Therefore,
management should not charge the user departments anything for their usage of the legal department and
should absorb its costs as a corporate expense. Allocating the legal costs on any basis would encourage the
user departments to limit their use of the legal department, possibly to the corporation's detriment.
D. The management of ROX Company wishes to encourage all other departments to use the legal department when it

Question 23 - ICMA 10.P1.161 - Overhead Allocation


A. This is the indirect non-labor related costs divided by the direct labor hours. This is partially correct, as the direct
labor hours are the activity base to use for allocation of indirect costs in a normal costing system. However, all of the
indirect costs, labor and non-labor, need to be included in the calculation.
B. This answer results from either dividing direct costs by direct labor hours or by dividing total indirect costs by total
direct and indirect labor hours. The question is asking for an allocation of indirect costs. The number of indirect hours
are irrelevant here, as indirect costs are allocated based on an activity base that is directly related to production, such
as direct labor hours. In a normal costing system, the activity base used is the actual amount of the allocation base
that was used in producing the product.
C. This is the indirect labor costs divided by the direct labor hours. This is partially correct, as the direct labor hours
are the activity base to use for allocation of indirect costs in a normal costing system. However, all of the indirect
costs, labor and non-labor, need to be included in the calculation.
D.
In a normal costing system, the budgeted indirect cost allocation rate is calculated by dividing the total
indirect costs by the budgeted amount of the allocation base to be used in producing the product. As given in
this question, that is 250,000 direct labor hours. The indirect costs are $5,000,000 for labor-related costs and
$7,000,000 for non-labor-related costs, for total indirect costs of $12,000,000. Dividing $12,000,000 by 250,000
direct labor hours results in an indirect application rate of $48 per direct labor hour.
Note that in a normal costing system, costs are applied to production on the basis of the actual usage of the
allocation base multiplied by the application rate. This is different from standard costing, where costs are
applied to production on the basis of the allowed usage of the allocation base for the actual output multiplied
by the application rate.

Question 24 - CMA 689 4.13 - Classifications of Costs
A. Prime costs are the costs of direct material and direct labor.
B. Sunk costs are costs that have already been spent and cannot be changed by current or future decisions. Not all of
the fixed overhead costs are sunk costs, though it is possible that some of them are.
C. Because the costs for fixed overhead relate to items like rent, these are committed costs. A committed cost
is a cost for the company's infrastructure. Committed costs are costs that are required in order to establish
and maintain the readiness to do business. Examples are fixed assets such as property, plant and equipment
and intangible assets such as the purchase of a franchise. They are usually on the balance sheet as assets
and become expenses in the form of amortization and depreciation.
D. Discretionary costs are costs that do not need to be incurred in the short-term. Since these are production costs,
they do need to be incurred and are not discretionary costs.

Question 25 - ICMA 10.P1.157 - Classifications of Costs


A. This is a true statement. Variable costs per unit produced do not change as production volume changes.
B. This is a true statement. As production volume increases, total electricity cost will increase due to the variable
component of total cost.
C. This is a true statement. As production increases, fixed costs remain the same within the relevant range. As a
result, as production increases, the same amount of the fixed cost component of the electricity will be spread over a
greater number of units. That means the fixed component of the electricity cost per unit produced will decline.
D.
The total electricity cost per unit of production will decrease as production volume increases. The reason for
this is in the fixed component of the electricity cost. As production increases, fixed costs remain the same
within the relevant range. As a result, the same amount of fixed cost is being spread over a greater number of
units as production increases. That means the fixed cost per unit produced will decline.
The variable cost per unit will stay the same while the fixed cost per unit declines. Therefore, the total cost
per unit will decline.

Question 26 - CMA 1295 3.27 - Classifications of Costs


A. An indirect cost is a cost that does not have a clear and observable relationship to an activity base.
B. A sunk cost is a cost that has already been spent and cannot be changed by any current or future activity. A sunk
cost does not have an observable or direct relationship to an activity base.
C. A target cost is the goal that the company will try to produce the product for. This does not have any relationship to
an activity base as it is simply management's goal for the cost of production.
D.
Engineered costs are costs that have a definite physical relationship to the activity base or measure. They
result from activities that have well defined cause and effect relationships between inputs and outputs and

(c) HOCK international, page 28

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


between costs and benefits. They are called engineered costs because engineers can specify precisely how
many inputs are required to generate a specific output. The value added by activities associated with
engineered costs is fairly clear and easy to measure. Engineered costs are variable costs in their cost
behavior. Direct materials and direct labor are engineered costs. Indirect resources that vary with product
specifications and production volume are also engineered costs, though the cause and effect relationships
are not as precise for indirect resources as they are for direct labor and direct materials. Relationships for
indirect resources can be established using statistical techniques such as regression analysis and
correlation analysis.

Question 27 - CMA 1288 3.25 - Internal Controls

D. Though the internal auditor does a lot of work in respect to the internal control system, the internal auditor is not
responsible for establishing and maintaining internal control.

Question 28 - CMA 1288 3.21 - Internal Controls


A. Although maintenance of statistical production analyses is a control objective, it is not an accounting control.
B. Policies and procedures for maintenance of control over unused checks are accounting controls because
they relate to the control objective of safeguarding cash.
C. Although the marketing analysis of sales generated by advertising projects is a control objective, it is not an

B. Canceled checks would give the date and the amount of payment. They would not indicate whether the vendor
offered a discount or whether payment was made within the discount period.
C. Paid vendor invoices would show the invoice date, the amount invoiced, any discount offered for prompt
payment, amount paid and date paid.
D. Purchase orders would give the date an item was ordered, the quantity ordered, and the anticipated price. They
would not show whether the vendor offered a discount or whether payment was made within the discount period.

A. It is unlikely the computer malfunctioned during the printing of the quantity.
B. R is not a hexadecimal character. Hexadecimal is usually written using the symbols 0-9, and A-F.
C. It is not possible that the quantity of shirts sold is 2.5. The quantity has to be a whole number.
D. The most likely explanation for the error is that the program did not contain a data checking routine for
input data, e.g., field check. A field check would make sure that the input field contains only the correct type
of characters, for example only numeric characters for a quantity field, etc.

Question 33 - CIA 1196 1.36 - Systems Controls and Security Measures


A. Access to the database (tables) of employee rates should be severely restricted to authorized personnel within the
human resources department or payroll personnel. Proper supervisor personnel should approve the rates, but not
have access to the tables.

(c) HOCK international, page 30

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


B. The concern is not with bona fide employees. The concern is to gain assurance that all changes to the table are
properly authorized and input into the system. Further, one pay rate will apply to more than one employee.
C. This would be the most appropriate control because it (a) requires supervisory signed approval, (b) limits
access to the tables to selected personnel within the payroll department, and (c) provides independent
reconciliation of all changes.
D. Edit checks will not detect invalid changes.

Question 34 - CIA 589 II.7 - Internal Controls


A. Establishing accountability for receipts at the earliest possible time should be done before the deposit is prepared
or the entry to reflect the receipt is posted. However, it would not detect bank deposits that are recorded but never
made.
B. Linking receipts to other internal accountabilities is done before the deposit is prepared or the entry to reflect the
receipt is posted. It would not detect bank deposits recorded but never made.
C. Since a bank reconciliation compares the bank statement with the company records, a bank reconciliation
prepared by a person not involved in preparing the deposit or posting the entry to reflect the receipt would
detect whether bank deposits that have been recorded have not been made.
D. Consolidation of cash receiving points is done before the deposit is prepared or the entry to reflect the deposit is
posted. It would not detect bank deposits recorded but never made.

Question 35 - CIA 1196 III.40 - Systems Controls and Security Measures


A. Unexplainable losses of, or changes to data are an indication of computer viruses.

D. Power surges are primarily caused by power supply problems.

Question 36 - CIA 1196 I.8 - Internal Auditing


A. The city's internal auditors are responsible for determining whether the city is in compliance with the grant
requirements. Whether the budget was reviewed and approved by supervisory personnel within the granting
agency is outside the scope of the audit and therefore should not be performed.
B. Comparing actual results with budgeted results, determining deviations and whether such deviations have been
approved by appropriate officials should be performed because it can determine whether the city is following
procedures to ensure that the budget is adhered to, as required by the grant.
C. Examining a sample of expenditures should be performed because it can determine whether the city is following
procedures to ensure that only allowable costs are charged to the program, as required by the grant.

Question 37 - CIA 1195 I.67 - Internal Controls


A. Control encompasses much more than controls designed to ensure the correctness of processing. Furthermore,
control is designed and instituted by management, not by accountants or auditors.
B. While control procedures may be designed from the bottom up, the concept of control flows from the top down.
C. A control is any action taken by management to enhance the likelihood that established goals and
objectives will be achieved.
D. This is not the definition of a control.

Question 38 - CMA 686 3.20 - Internal Controls


A. Requiring two signatures on a check would not prevent resubmission and double paying of vendor invoices after
they have been paid.
B.
A voucher is an internal accounting document that is usually created after the company has received an
invoice from a vendor or service provider and has successfully matched the invoice to a purchase order. In
other words, it is created after the company has determined that this invoice is genuine and should be paid.
The voucher communicates the company's intent to make the payment to the vendor or service provider.
Among other things, the voucher contains detailed information about the transaction, including the payee, the
amount of the payment to be made, and a description of the transaction.
Based on the authorization in the voucher, the check is then created to pay the invoice. The accounting
system will show that a voucher has been created for the purchase order issued for that transaction and that
it has been cancelled; and a second voucher cannot be created. So if a voucher is cancelled after the check
has been written and signed, payment cannot be made a second time even if the vendor does submit a
duplicate invoice, because there is no active voucher to authorize a second payment.
Therefore, the voucher and all supporting documents should be cancelled by personnel in the treasurer's
office at the time the check is signed.
C. The account payable personnel should not have access to checks after they have been signed.
D. Cancellation of vouchers should not take place until the check in payment of the invoice has been signed.

Question 39 - CMA 1290 P2 Q6 - Accounts Receivable and Inventory

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


B. The journal entry to record the bad debt expense requires a debit to bad debt expense and a credit to the
allowance for doubtful debts account.
C. The journal entry to record the bad debt expense requires a debit to bad debt expense and a credit to the
allowance for doubtful debts account.
D.
The journal entry to record the bad debt expense requires a debit to bad debt expense and a credit to the
allowance for doubtful debts account. Since the percentage of receivables method is to be used, the amount
is calculated by determining what the ending balance in the allowance account should be and then
determining what entry is required to bring the balance to that level.
Using the information in the aging schedule: [($390,000 0.01) + ($115,000 0.05) + ($210,000 0.15) +
($25,000 0.40)] = $51,150, which is the amount that should be in the allowance account at the end of the
period. There was already a credit balance of $16,500 in the account. However, this $16,500 was prior to the
write off of $10,000 of receivables that will reduce the credit balance in the allowance account to $6,500. To
increase a credit balance of $6,500 to a credit balance of $51,150, a credit of $44,650 is needed. The
corresponding debit is to bad debt expense.

Question 40 - CMA 695 P2 Q10 - Investments, PP&E (Fixed Assets), and Intangible and Other Assets
A. Any cost that is incurred in order to get the asset ready and available for use should be included in the cost of that
asset. Freight and handling are costs necessary to get the asset ready and available for use.
B. Any cost that is incurred in order to get the asset ready and available for use should be included in the cost of that
asset. Insurance while in transit is a cost necessary to get the asset ready and available for use.
C. Any cost that is incurred in order to get the asset ready and available for use should be included in the cost of that
asset. Assembly and installation are costs necessary to get the asset ready and available for use.
D. Any cost that is incurred in order to get the asset ready and available for use should be included in the
cost of that asset. Interest that will be incurred on the note payable is a financing decision and is not
necessary in order for the asset to be used. This interest will be recognized as interest expense when it is
incurred.

Question 41 - CMA 1285 P4 Q12 - Revenue Recognition


A. This is the total profit on the sale. Under the installment method, this profit will be recognized only as cash is
collected. See the correct answer for a complete explanation.
B. This is the amount of cash collected during the period. See the correct answer for a complete explanation.
C. This question asks how much profit should be recognized this period, and this is done by multiplying the
cash received this period by the profit % on the sale. The cash received this period was $80,000 ($20,000
downpayment and $60,000 from the first of the three equal installments), and the profit % is calculated as the
profit from the sale divided by the sales price. This gives a profit percentage of 60% ($120,000 profit
$200,000 sales price). Multiplying this by the cash received during the period gives $48,000 of profit to
recognize in the current period.
D. There would not be any profit recognized under the cost recovery method, but the question is about the installment
(c) HOCK international, page 33

Part 1 : MOCK TEST 3


method. See the correct answer for a complete explanation.

Question 42 - CIA 0592 P4 Q34 - Revenue Recognition


A. This question asks how much profit should be recognized this period under the installment method. There
will be two sources of profit for the seller. The first is the profit that is recognized on the cash collected. This
is done by multiplying the cash received this period by the profit % on the sale. The cash received this period
was $100, and the profit % is calculated as the profit from the sale divided by the sales price. This gives a
profit percentage of 33% ($500 profit $1,500 sales price). Multiplying this by the cash received during the
period gives $33 of gross profit to recognize in the current period from the collection of cash. The second
source of profit is from interest. The interest rate is 1% per month on the unpaid amount. The unpaid balance
outstanding for December was $1,400 and 1% of this is $14. In total, the seller recognizes $47 of profit.
B. The answer results from using the gross profit percentage as the cost of sales percentage and from omitting the
interest income.
C. This answer includes only the profit from the interest and does not include the profit that is recognized on the cash
collected from the sale.
D. This answer includes only the profit from the cash collected on the sale and does not include the profit that is
recognized from interest.

Question 43 - CIA 0596 P4 Q3 - Revenue Recognition


A. Under the installment method, profit is recognized only as the company receives money from the
customer. For each dollar that is received the company will recognize profit that is equal to the gross profit
percentage. For this company, the year 3 gross profit percentage is 50%. Since they received $4,000 in cash
from the customers, they will recognize $2,000 in gross profit from installment sales in year 3 related to year 3
sales. Since the question is how much profit is deferred, we need to subtract this $2,000 from the total profit
on year 3 installment sales. The total gross profit was $10,000, so the amount deferred to future periods is
$8,000.
B. This is the amount of gross profit to be recognized from year 1 sales ($800), plus year 2 sales ($200), plus year 3
sales ($2,000). So, $800 + $200 + $2,000 = $3,000. The question asks for the gross profit amount from year 3 sales
to be deferred to future years.
C. This is the total gross profit from year 3 sales.
D. This is the amount of gross profit that is recognized in year 3 from year 3 sales.

D. Under the FIFO method (perpetual or periodic) the ending inventory will consist of the most recently
purchased units. In this question, the company had a total of 4,700 units on hand during the period. They sold
3,400, leaving 1,300 units in ending inventory. Under the FIFO method, these 1,300 units will be the most
recently purchased units. Therefore, ending inventory will consist of 1,300 of the units that were purchased
on May 20, for $2.90 each. This gives an ending inventory of $3,770 (1,300 $2.90).

Question 45 - CMA 696 P2 Q5 - Accounts Receivable and Inventory


A. Cost of goods sold was not understated because the items sold were excluded from ending inventory.
B. Accounts receivable was affected because the sale was not recorded. Cost of goods sold was not understated
because the items sold were excluded from ending inventory.
C. Inventory and cost of goods sold were not overstated because the items sold were excluded from ending inventory.
D. Because the goods were not included in ending inventory, inventory is not affected. Also, because the
inventory was correctly recorded, cost of goods sold was not affected by the error. However, by failing to
record the sale, both accounts receivables and sales were understated.

C. Under the perpetual LIFO method, each time that inventory is sold the company makes the determination
of which units were the most recently purchased, and which units were therefore sold. In the first sale on the
16th, the units that were sold were all of the units purchased on the 7th as well as 200 of the units that were in
beginning inventory. The units that were sold on the 28th were 1,400 of the units that had been purchased on
the 20th. This means that in ending inventory were 1,200 units that had been in beginning inventory and 100
of the units purchased on the 20th. Given their respective costs of $2.45 and $2.90, this gives an ending
inventory of $3,230 [(1,200 2.45) + (100 $2.90).
D. This answer results from assuming the periodic weighted average cost method is being used. The question says to
use the perpetual LIFO method.

A. This would be the correct way to account for the investment income under the equity method,not under the fair
value method. See the correct answer for a complete explanation.
B. This is 30% of the net income of Mattiy minus 30% of the dividends paid by Mattiy. This is not the correct way to
account for investment income under either the fair value method or under the equity method.
C. Under the fair value method, investment income is recognized as dividends are received. This is not the amount of
dividends received from Mattiy by Boggs. See the correct answer for a complete explanation.
D. Under the fair value method, investment income is recognized as dividends are received. Since Boggs
owned 30% of Mattly, they would recognize as income 30% of the dividend that Mattly distributed, or $30,000.
