If dividends deduct from retained earnings in SOCIE so it should also appear in SOFP in retained earning portion. so why not it came in SOFP in this question:
The following information is available about a company’s dividends:
(Declared August 20X5)
Sept 20X5 Final dividend for the year ended 30 June 20X5 paid $ 100,000
March 20X6 Interim dividend for the year ended 30 June 20X6 paid $ 40,000
(Declared August 20X6)
Sept 20X6 Final dividend for the year ended 30 June 20X6 paid $120,000
Statement of profit or loss Statement of financial position
What figures, if any, should be disclosed in the company’s statement of profit or loss for the year ended 30 June 20X6 and its statement of financial position at that date?
a) $160,000 deduction $120,000
b) $140,000 deduction Nil
c) Nil $120,000

In future you must ask this sort of question in the Ask the Tutor Forum and not as a comment on a lecture.
Of course dividends affect the retained earnings (and they affect the cash balance as well) but it is the retained earnings (and the cash balance) that appear on the SOFP – not the dividends. Dividends will only appear on the SOFP if they have been declared but not yet paid, in which case they appear as a liability.
