    The answer is A. The total revenue will be understated

    Explanation:

    Unearned revenue is when the amount or money has been received before providing the service. For example, a manufacturer has received money from a customer for a product that will be delivered over a period of time, let's say every month.

    Unearned revenue is a liability but the failure to make an adjusting entry in the income statement will understate revenue because as the product is being delivered monthly, the accountant should be recognizing it as revenue in the Income statement. As this is recognized as revenue, unearned revenue account decreases with the same amount monthly
