Question 1 (40 total points)
Required: For each cost item in the table below, first indicate whether it would be variable (V) or
fixed (F) with respect to the number of units produced and sold. Then, if appropriate, write down
whether the item is a selling or administrative cost (S or A). If the item is a manufacturing cost, leave
the selling or administrative cost column blank. For an item that is a manufacturing cost write down
whether it would typically be treated as a direct cost or an indirect cost (D or I) with respect to the
activity level, in the third column. Points will be deducted for filling in more than one box per
category (e.g. you should not fill both variable and fixed cost per item).
