ANSWER
:-

Fixed Overhead
Costs:

Budgeted Fixed costs p.m = 32000( 32*1000)

standard fixed costs = 30400( 950*32)

Actual Fixed cost = 33950( given)

Note* Standard fixed cost is budgeted cost for
actual unit.

Fixed Overhead Vol. Var= (standard volume- actual volume)*
standard rate

(1000-950)* 32= 1600 adverse

Fixed Overhead Exp Var.= 32000-33950 = 1950 adverse
