Correct Answer is: Debit and Credit totals will be EQUAL because of this error.
This is because even though the amount debited and credited is MORE than the correct amount, the amount debited and credited is SAME.
Hence, Trial Balance totals will be equal.

Correct Answer: Credit column would be HIGHER than Debit Column.
This is because amount credited \$ 3810 is MORE than amount debited of \$ 3180.
Credit column would be higher by \$ 630 than Debit column. [3810 – 3180]
Correct Answer :Credit column would be HIGHER than Debit Column.
This is because amount credited \$ 4420 [2210 + 2210] is MORE than amount debited of \$ 0
Credit column would be higher by \$ 4420 than Debit column.
