Can you review these please:


6. I chose C

9. I chose C - the Deming application prize as defined as awarded to companies and individuals that achieve distictive results by carrying out TQC

14.I chose D

16. I chose A

20. I chose C

Expert:  Chris M. replied 3 years ago.



On #6 doesn't your text use CAD as an acronym for cost allocation decisions?

I have the same answer for #9

On #14 I believe 'A' is the best choice.

On #16 I chose 'B', because this method allocates the costs of service departments to other service departments.

On #20 I thought choice 'D' should be "all of the above." Actually all of these are examples of byproducts.


Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I kept my Answers for #6, 14, and 20 ( my answers were correct) I doubted myself on #16 and chged it to your answer - it was wrong - correct answer was A.

Hello Customer,


Thanks for your "accept" and feedback. I didn't have access to the text itself, only some parts of the chapter online. Some of these (e.g, #13 and #20) were tricky without the text explanation. Regardless, glad you did well again!
