Ahmed, the accounting manager, boasted to Adel, the CEO, that he knew some accounting tricks that could increase company income by revising a few journal entries for rental payments on production units.

Requirements:

1-  How did the change in the journal entries affect the net income of the company at year-end?

2-  Who gained and who lost as a result of these actions?
