AAT Practice Exam 2, Task 5

Hello All,

Can somebody explain to me why, in this example here, Mary has not utilised the Property Allowance of £1,000 against 29 Main Rd and/or 35 London St? I was led to believe that if a property had costs of less than £1,000 then this allowance was available and should be used to reduce profits....

From looking at the question, the comment about claiming all possible allowances seems to point to the fact that she would be willing to use the allowance. Can you help?!?

Also, just a couple of other things:
What does the comment "Mary has not made any elections" mean? I think it may be important somehow..... :-)
With a multiple property portfolio like this, can the £1,000 property allowance be split between more than one property, say £500 each for Main Rd and London St?

Your answers and patience are both warmly appreciated - I don't work in an accountancy setting, so you're all I got!
