MGT402 – Cost & Management Accounting Online Quiz # 2 January 05, 2010

MGT402 – Cost & Management Accounting
Online Quiz # 2
January 05, 2010

Total Questions: 15

If you find any incorrect answer, kindly let everyone know about it.

Question # 1 of 15 ( Start time: 03:44:00 AM )
Which of the following is a point of differentiation between blanket rates and department rates?
Select correct option:

Blanket rate is a single overhead rate established for the entire factory

Department rates are separate overhead rates for all departments of factory through which the products pass

Department rate is a single overhead rate established for the entire factory

Blanket rates are separate overhead rates for all departments of factory through which the product passes

(I'm not 100% sure about this question, I selected option # 1, kindly see handouts, page # 105(pdf file))

Question # 2 of 15 ( Start time: 03:45:19 AM ) Total Marks: 1
Production volume of 1,200 units cost incurred Rs. 10,000 and production volume of 1,400 units cost incurred Rs.20, 000. The variable cost per unit would be?
Select correct option:

Rs. 50.00 per unit

Rs. 8.33 per unit

Rs. 14.20 per unit

Rs. 100 per unit

(I got confused in this question, what I'm getting:
variable cost per unit = total variable cost/total number of units produced

one solution could be;
in producing 1200 units, total cost incurred was 10000, and
in producing 1400 units, total cost incurred was 20000

1400 - 1200 = 200 units
20000 - 10000 = 10000 cost

which means when we produced 1200 units the total cost was 10000 but when we increased production to 1400 units, the total cost increased to 20000, so the difference (20000 - 10000 = 10000) should be of variable cost
now by dividing "total variable cost by quantity" i.e, 10000/200 = 50 per unit

but the confusion is in order to get variable cost per unit, we divide total variable cost by total number of units produced, and total number of units in the above MCQ seems to be 1400. if we divide 10000/1400 = 7.14 which is not in the options
if we divide 10000/2600 = 3.84 (not there in the options)

so i guess 50 per unit might be a correct answer. but please if anyone know about this question, kindly explain it

  2. I have noticed that sensible real estate agents all over the place are getting set to FSBO Advertising and marketing.
    They are knowing that it's not just placing a sign post in the front area. It's really
    pertaining to building associations with these vendors
    who sooner or later will become buyers. So, while you give your time and energy to supporting these suppliers go it alone -- the "Law of Reciprocity" kicks in.

    at the same time are missing the most obvious step - they
    aren't eating enough. The more weight you use the more muscle fibers you will work in your muscle the more muscle you will gain. Those who think obesity is due to their genetic makeup relish any news that 'fat genes' have been found as they look to blame something else for their predicament rather than their own habits and behavior.

    be done at home without a prescription is a topical ointment.

    I would also like to dismiss the earlier notion that developing
    of genital skin tags should not be misunderstood towards developing any sexually
    transmitted diseases. 'We usually have two or three people in the room, no-one has time, so we have one person tightening the body and another giving a treatment on the face'.
