This is a take-home assignment. You are to answer the questions in the way(s) that you believe are the most
thorough, most descriptive, and most analytical.
Assume that you are the person identified as “you” in the problem provided to you. You have an Accounting
degree from Troy University and you are a CPA. As stated in the problem, you are married and you have two
children who are in a very expensive private school. Your spouse has just lost his/her job. Answer the
questions set out at the end of the problem.
You are to compose a short paper that addresses all questions asked. As we are also evaluating your writing,
your answers must be in an essay format, rather than using outlines or bullet points. You are to submit your
answers in narrative form. Keep in mind that communication has multiple dimensions to it. Communicating
substantive information is only one dimension. How well you communicate it and the grasp of the English
language that you display in your communications will all have a bearing on how the individual grading your
submission will evaluate it.
