During the current month, the following errors occurred in recording transactions in the purchases journal or in posting from it.
a. An invoice for $900 of supplies from Collins Co. was recorded as having been received from Collings Co., another supplier.
b. A credit of $840 to Tanner Company was posted as $480 in the subsidiary ledger.
c. An invoice for equipment of $6,500 was recorded as $5,500.
d. The Accounts Payable column of the purchases journal was overstated by $2,000.
How will each error come to the bookkeeper's attention, other than by chance discovery?
