    B. The total expenses will be understated

    Explanation:

    The adjusting entry is as follows

    Wages expense $5,000

    To Wages payable $5,000

    (Being the wages expense is adjusted)

    The wages expense should be debited as it increased the expenses while at the same time the wages payable should be credited as it also increased the liabilities account

    Since this above adjusting entry of unpaid salaries for $5,000 is failed to recorded due to which the total expenses will be understated instead of overstated

    Hence, the correct option is B.
