4. Assume for this part only that:
a. None of the $1,000 insurance expense had expired during the year. Instead, assume it is a pre- payment of the next period’s insurance protection.
b. There are no earned and unpaid wages at the end of the year. (Reverse the $1,300 wages payable accrual.)
Describe the financial statement changes that would result from these two assumptions.
