Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Affected accounts in the transactions

In the given transactions, service revenue has been earned, and so the revenue account would be affected. Apart from this, the other accounts are Cash (asset), Computer equipment (asset), Notes payable (liability).

Step 2: Transactional effect on the accounts

As the service revenue has been earned, there is an increase in the revenue account by $62,000 and so in equity too. In lieu of revenue cash, computer equipment, and notes payable have been accepted. This would increase the cash (asset) by $10,000, equipment (asset) by $80,000, and notes payable (liability) by $28,000.

Based on this, the correct answer would be option a, b, e, and f.
