  4. The partners will share in losses according to the allocation of profits specified in the partnership agreement.

Answer(s): D

Explanation:

Choice "d" is correct. Under the Revised Uniform Partnership Act, unless agreed otherwise, partners share losses in the same manner that they share profits.
Choice "a" is incorrect. Under the Revised Uniform Partnership Act, unless agreed otherwise, partners share losses in the same manner that they share profits. Here, the partners agreed to share profits in a 2:1:1 ratio. Thus, losses will be shared in that manner rather than equally.
Choice "b" is incorrect. Under the Revised Uniform Partnership Act, unless agreed otherwise, partners share losses in the same manner that they share profits. They are not shared in accordance with the partners' capital contributions.
Choice "c" is incorrect. Under the Revised Uniform Partnership Act, unless agreed otherwise, partners share losses in the same manner that they share profits. They are not shared in accordance with the partners' capital contributions or loans.



Fil and Breed are 50% partners in A&B Company, a used-car dealership. A&B maintains an average used-car inventory worth $150,000. On January 5, National Bank obtained a $30,000 judgement against Fil and Fil's child on a loan that Fil had cosigned and on which Fil's child had defaulted. National sued A&B to be allowed to attach $30,000 worth of cars as part of Fil's interest in A&B's inventory. Will National prevail in its suit?

  1. No, because the judgement was not against the partnership.
  2. No, because attachment of the cars would dissolve the partnership by operation of law.
  3. Yes, because National had a valid judgement against Fil.
  4. Yes, because Fil's interest in the partnership inventory is an asset owned by Fil.

Answer(s): A

Explanation:

Choice "a" is correct. A partner has no right to possess partnership property except for partnership purposes. Thus, a personal creditor of a partner has no right to attach items of partnership property to satisfy a partner's personal debt.
Choice "b" is incorrect. There is no such rule. If the partnership were liable for the individual partner's debt, the cars could be attached and the partnership would not be dissolved.
Choice "c" is incorrect. A partner has no right to possess partnership property except for partnership purposes. Thus, a personal creditor of a partner has no right to attach items of partnership property to satisfy a partner's personal debt.
Choice "d" is incorrect. A partner has no right to possess partnership property except for partnership purposes. Thus, a personal creditor of a partner has no right to attach items of partnership property to satisfy a partner's personal debt.

  2. His own negligent acts.
  3. The malpractice of his partners regarding errors and omissions.
  4. The negligent actions of his subordinates under his direct control.

Answer(s): C

  2. Hold all partners personally liable for all debts and liabilities of the partnership and partners.
  3. Carry no less than one hundred thousand dollars of property insurance.
  4. Not have partners with professional licenses.

Answer(s): A

Explanation:
