True

False

1) Straight line amortization = 200000-188500/20 = 575 per semiannual period

Carrying value = 188500+(575*4) = 190800

2) Depletion expense for a period is only recognized on natural resources that have been extracted and sold during the period.

So above statement is true

3) The book value of a plant asset is always equal to its fair market value.

So above statement is False

4) Amortization expense per year = (162000-12000/5) = 30000 per year

Amortization expense for 2008 = 30000*6/12 = 15000
