Question 8All costs are fixed in the short-term, and all costs are variable in the long-term.

Answers:            

True

False

Explanation: Costs are expired expenditures. For example, raw material inventory is an expenditure classified on the balance sheet as an asset. It becomes a cost once used and enters into product. The reason this statement is true is that, even in the long-term, a lease on a production facility will expire. That expiration transforms what was a fixed cost into a variable cost again. Even direct costs, such as raw material, can be fixed in the short term. This is true because we may have entered into a purchasing contract specifying the price of a raw material for a period of time.
