Q.1.(a) Amortisation of intangible assets based on revenue is discouraged by IND AS 38. However the question was meant to be solved in the proportion of Cash Flows generated by the intangible asset. The question would have been better answered with reference to AS 26 rather than IND AS 38.
Intention of ICAI could be known only when suggested answers are released.

Q.1.(b) The answer can be answered using the para of IND AS 2 which requires that inventory should be valued at “COST – Est Future Loss” if the finished good is expected to be sold below cost.

Percentage completion = 76%
Loss recognised upto 31.03.17 = 76% of 200 i.e 152
Est. Future Loss = 48 should be recognised as provision as on 31.3.17

Q.1(d) REVENUE as per AS 9 (IND AS 18)
Discount offered subsequent to sale cannot be adjusted to Sales.
Sale of Land can be recognised if substantial risk & rewards incidental to ownership are transferred to the buyer. Registration is only relating to transfer of title which is not necessary to recognise revenue.
