activities are reported only in the fund ﬁnancial statements and not in the government-wide ﬁnancial statements.

V A) The General Fund.
B) Special revenue funds.

correct only if particular special revenue or permanent funds were treated as major funds.

CORRECT governmental funds and exceeded 5 percent of total revenues for governmental and enterprise funds combined. Fund Y had total assets that exceeded 10 percent of total assets for all governmental funds and total revenues that exceeded 5 percent of total
revenues for governmental and enterprise funds combined. Based on this information, which of these funds would be classiﬁed as
a major fund? A) Both funds X and Y.
V ' 3) Fund X only.
C) Fund Y only. D) Insufﬁcient information to determine which would be a major fund. Feedback: The answer to this question may not be obvious, but the point is worth making. The same element (e.g.,
assets, liabilities, revenues, expenditures/expenses) must meet both the 10 percent and the 5 percent rule before a
fund must be classiﬁed as a major fund. Fund Y does not meet this requirement. Management of a governmental unit
has discretion, however, to classify any fund as a major fund, even if it does not meet the quantitative criteria. E-mail Your Results Date: Sun Oct 30 2016 13:33:43 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time) My name:
