Please check, in part(iii) of question 1, you have written ‘By overcasting the purchase account by Rs. 500’

I think this should be checked because the part below it is same as this one but it is of purchase book and not purchase return book. Yet the answers are the same.

I think the answer of this should be ‘To overcasting the purchase return account by Rs. 500’

Please correct me if I’m wrong 🙂
