D. \$194130

1.
Answer is A. \$72000
Allowance account is adjusted to amount of uncollectibles

2.
Answer is A. \$25400
Since after write off both accounts receivable and allowance are reduced, so there is no effect on net realizable value

3.
Unadjusted Allowance balance = \$22400 - 33500 = \$11100 Debit
Adjustment = \$235000 x 5% + 11100 = \$22,850
Answer is B. \$22850

4.
Cash Realizable Value = \$3140000 - 294000 = \$2,846,000
Answer is D. \$2846000

5.
Bad Debt Expense = \$1900000 x 10% - 33500 = \$156,500
Answer is B. \$156500
