\$6,286

\$524

On July 1, Alton Co. issued an \$89,800, 7%, 120-day note payable to Seller Co. And the fiscal year ends on 31st July.

Here the interest will be for 30 days i.e from 1st July to 31st July.

Interest expense = Notes value × interest rate × 30 / 360.

Interest expense = \$ 89800 × 7 % × 30 / 360 = \$ 523.83. i e 524 ( rounded off).

Thus the amount of interest expense recognized by Alton in current fiscal year = \$ 524.

Thus the correct Option is---------D i.e \$ 524.
