Derauf has prepared the following list of statements about decision making and incremental analysis. Identify each statement as true or false. If false, indicate how to correct the statement.

5. Decisions involve a choice among alternative courses of action.
6. The process used to identify the financial data that change under alternative courses of action is called incremental analysis.
7. Costs that are the same under all alternative courses of action sometimes affect the decision.
