Please do not simply type out full questions and expect to be provided with full answers!! You must have answers in the same book in which you found the questions, and so ask about whatever it is in the answers that you are not clear about and then I will explain.
These questions are both very often asked in the exam and are easy questions. Everything needed to be able to answer then is explain in my free lectures on Limited Companies.
The lectures are a complete free course for Paper FA and cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.
