Answer a. A debit to cash and a credit to notes payable
Explanation: An organisation that borrows cash from a bank to meet its short-term liabilities has to pay the banks or money lenders the principal amount with interest. This transaction leads to an increase in the organisation’s debt obligations and hence in the books of accounts, cash is debited and notes payable is credited.
