Ans: d Response A: A physical inventory count is usually taken at the end of the company’s fiscal year, not when the company has the greatest amount of inventory (Determining Inventory Quantities).

However, d is a better answer (Determining Inventory Quantities).

Ans: a Response A: Correct! Response B: Goods shipped on consignment to another company should be included in the physical inventory of the firm that shipped the consigned goods (Consigned Goods). Response C: Goods in transit from another company shipped FOB shipping point should be included in the physical inventory of the firm to whom the goods are being shipped because the title passes when the goods leave the seller’s place of business (Illustration 6-1).

Ans: c Response A: This figure comes from multiplying 9,000 units times the earliest cost of $11 per unit. Ending inventory under FIFO uses the most recent costs in computing ending inventory. It is computed as follows: $65,000 (5,000 X $13) + $48,000 (4,000 X $12) = $113,000 (First-In, First-out, FIFO). Response B: This figure comes from multiplying 9,000 units times the cost of $12 per unit. Ending inventory under FIFO uses the most recent costs in computing ending inventory. It is computed as follows: $65,000 (5,000 X $13) + $48,000 (4,000 X $12) = $113,000 (First-In, First-out, FIFO). Response C: Correct!
