adjusting entries
Can anyone tell me how these adjusting entries will be treated in the final accounts ie P&L and Balance Sheet?

1.An item of plant, originally purchased for £500,000 on 1 March 2008, was sold on
2 December 2010 for £390,000. No entries or adjustments have been made to the
trial balance as at 31 December 2010 for this sale except to debit the sale proceeds to
bank and credit a suspense account with the equal and opposite entry. Depreciation is
charged by Duo for a full year in the year of purchase and none in the year of sale.

2.During the year an item of plant costing £350,000 and with accumulated depreciation
of £110,000 was sold for £190,000. The sale proceeds have not yet been received and
no adjustments have been made to the accounts in respect of the sale of the plant.

i the question is silent about the depreciation rate of the asset hence it is assumed to be 10% on WDV.
ii the question is also silent about the year ending date of the company hence it is assumed to be December 31.
