a) Paul had paid Ksh 2,200 of his previously irrecoverable debt (we do not expect to receive any more)

c) Ann had paid her debt of Ksh 2,000 in full

Please do not simply type out a full question and expect to be provided with a full answer. You must have an answer in the same book in which you found the question, so ask about whatever it is in the answer that you are not clear about and then I will explain.
Everything needed to be able to answer this question is covered in our free lectures. The lectures are a complete free course for Paper FA and cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.
(Also, of course, you cannot be asked to write up accounts in the exam, even though you are expected to understand the double entries.)
