### CFA Level 1-FSA Test VI Questions

Reply for FSA Test VI Question 5:

In the question, we have to calculate the impact of inventory purchase on the cash flow statement using LIFO. Cash flow does not depend on the inventory cost flow method used. Cash flow means how much actual cash you paid for your purchases. It is independent of LIFO or FIFO. During the year, the firm purchased inventory 20 units @ \$50 and 10 units @ \$53. So, in total the firm paid \$1000 + \$530 = \$1530 for the purchases.
Hence option A is the correct answer.

In the question, we have to find the discount amortization for the issued bond. We know that discount amortization is equal to the difference between the interest and the coupon payment. In case of bonds, interest for the year is calculated on the book value of the bonds at the beginning of the year (\$92,976.39) at the market rate at issue (7%). Hence, interest = \$6508.35. Now this is \$508.35 in excess of the (\$6000) coupon payment for the year. So, the discount amortization is equal to \$508.35
