Q:

What is an example of an inflation risk?

Answer

Inflation risk, also called purchasing power risk, is the chance that the cash flows from an investment won't be worth as much in the future because of changes in purchasing power due to inflation.

HOW IT WORKS (EXAMPLE):

For example, $1,000,000 in bonds with a 10% coupon might generate enough interest payments for a retiree to live on, but with an annual 3% inflation rate, every$1,000 produced by the portfolio will only be worth $970 next year and about$940 the year after that. The rising inflation means that the interest payments have less and less purchasing power. And the principal, when it is repaid after several years, will buy substantially less than it did when the investor first purchased the bonds.

Q:

In preparing a bank reconciliation, outstanding checks are

 A) Deducted from the balance sheet B) Added to the bank balance C) Deducted from the bank balance D) Added to the balance sheet

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Deducted from the balance sheet

Explanation:

If an outstanding check of the previous month clears the bank (is paid by the bank) in the current month, you simply remove that check from the list of outstanding checks.

If an outstanding check of the previous month does not clear the bank in the current month, the check will remain on the list of outstanding checks until the month that it does clear the bank.

In the bank reconciliation process, the total amount of the outstanding checks is deducted from the balance appearing on the bank statement.
