Which of the following in Trial Balance is contradictory to each other? __________.

Solution:

The correct option is D

A trial balance is the accounting equation of our business laid out in detail. It has our assets, expenses and drawings on the left (the debit side) and our liabilities, revenue and owner's equity on the right (the credit side).

Since inventory is an asset and drawings are expenses, both are debit items.

Sales are a form of income so go on the credit side of the trial balance.Purchases returns will reduce the expense so go on the credit side.

Carriage inwards in trial balance and Carriage outwards in trial balance are both treated as just another expense, so they are debit items

Trade receivables are revenues so are recorded on debit side and liability is recorded as a credit item.
