The ones that I think are wrong are g, h, and i. Thanks for your help!

  • Accounting -

    For (g)you should Debit Cash because the money was collected,

    For (h)you are right

    For (i)you should Credit Cash because the amount was paid.

    For the rest of the transactions I didn't notice anything wrong
    Hopefully your trial balance checks out, but i recommend checking it more than once because the trial balance is tricky, at least it is for me.
