1. You and Frank are studying for an upcoming accounting exam. Frank says, “Contributed capital is basically the stockholders’ equity of the company. It includes things like the common stock, paid-in capital in excess of par, preferred stock, and retained earnings.” Do you agree with Frank? Why or why not? Explain with examples.
2. Another student in your accounting class says that, as she understands it, most current liabilities appearing on the balance sheet arise from transactions involving operating activities.
