(a)
Capital + Liabilities = Assets
1,00,000 + 0 = Cash (1,00,000)
(b)
Capital + Liabilities = Assets
1,00,000 + 0 = Cash (75,000) + Furniture (25,000)
(c)
Capital + Liabilities = Assets
1,00,000 + 0 = Cash (55,000) + Furniture (25,000) + Goods (20,000)
(d)
Capital + Liabilities = Assets
1,00,000 + Ram (5,000) = Cash (55,000) + Furniture (25,000) + Goods(25,000)
(e)
Capital + Liabilities = Assets
1,00,000 + Ram (5,000) = Cash (70,000) + Furniture(25,000) + Goods(10,000)
(f)
Capital + Liabilities = Assets
1,00,000 + Ram (5,000) = Cash (70,000) + Furniture (25,000) + Goods (2,000) + Shyam (8,000)
(g)
Capital + Liabilities = Assets
1,00,000 + Ram (1,000) = Cash (66,000) + Furniture (25,000) + Goods (2,000) + Shyam (8,000)
(h)
Capital + Liabilities = Assets
1,00,000 + Ram (1,000) = Cash (71,000) + Furniture (25,000) + Goods (2,000) + Shyam (3,000)
(i)
Capital + Liabilities = Assets
1,00,000 + Ram (1,000) = Cash (46,000) + Furniture (25,000) + Goods (2,000) + Shyam (3,000) + Bank (25,000)
(j)
Capital + Liabilities = Assets
1,00,000 + Ram (1,000) = Cash (56,000) + Furniture (25,000) + Goods (2,000) + Shyam (3,000) + Bank (15,000)
