1. Drawings A/c  Dr,  2500

       To Purchase A/c             2500

(Since goods were withdrawn for personal use, it should have been debited to Drawings A/c instead of Purchase A/c)

2. Suspense A/c Dr.  15000

       To Sengupta A/c             15000

(It is assumed that Purchase A/c was debited properly earlier but Sengupta's A/c was wrongly debited instead of crediting, hence now we need to credit Sengupta's A/c with double the amount.  Since it is a one sided error, it will be rectified with the help of suspense account.)

3. Discount A/c            Dr.  75

    Discount Recd A/c  Dr.  75

        To Suspense A/c                150
