Set control risk at the minimum without sampling. D. Pick a lower risk of assessing control risk too low to increase sample size. 2.

Define the precision required to provide audit satisfaction. B. Mathematically measure uncertainty. C. Establish conclusive audit evidence with decreased audit effort. D. Promote a more legally defensible procedural approach. 3. In non-statistical sampling for tests of controls, increasing the desired confidence level results in a A. Higher tolerable deviation rate.

The population includes several large items. B. The auditor expects overstatement errors. C. Many errors are expected. D. No items in the account have zero balances. 8. The risk of incorrect acceptance and the risk of assessing control risk too low relate to the A. Preliminary estimates of materiality levels. B. Allowable risk of tolerable error. C. Efficiency of the audit. D. Effectiveness of the audit. 9. In parallel simulation, actual client data are reprocessed using an auditor software program. An advantage of using parallel simulation, instead of performing tests of controls without a computer, is that A.

There is no risk of creating potentially material errors in the client's data. D. The size of the sample can be greatly expanded at relatively little additional cost. 10. A primary advantage of using generalized audit packages in the audit of an advanced computer system is that it enables the auditor to A.
