Indicate which of the following statements about evaluating investment centers is false. (Points : 5) The use of the original cost of plant and equipment as part of operating assets (rather than book value) would help to eliminate the age of equipment as a factor in ROI computations. Residual income as a performance measure encourages managers to accept all investment projects that will benefit the company as a whole. Return on Investment would decrease if the turnover decreases. The use of residual income makes it easy to compare investment centers of different sizes. 7.

(Points : 5) If the budgeting process is to be effective, managers must believe they will be rewarded significantly only if they perform better than budgeted expectations. A company whose sales fluctuate significantly due to changes in the economy should invest less effort in budgeting than a business whose business activity is more stable. A budget that is prepared to determine whether or not a new manufacturing facility (plant) should be constructed is called a ?master budget.? The primary responsibility for preparing the budgets should not be left to the accountants. 12.
