Prepare
the statement of cash flows of Surmise Company for the year ended
December 31, 2011. Use the indirect method to present cash flows from
operating activities because you do not have sufficient information to
use the direct method. You will need to make reasonable assumptions
concerning the reasons for change in some account balances. A
spreadsheet or T-account analysis will be helpful.
