Hi, please assist me with this group project.

Complete the answer sheet with the column headings shown here. For each of the following transactions or adjustments, indicate the effect of the transaction or adjustment on the appropriate balance sheet category and on net income by selecting for each account affected the account name and amount and indicating whether it is an addition (+) or a subtraction (-). Net income is not affected by every transaction. In some cases only one column may be affected because all of the specific accounts affected by the transaction are included in that category. Can you explain why you chose your answers? This would help me to explain to group members.
