Q2 b aapne class me discuss kra h that if it is treated as negligence. SA 220 clearly specifies to review b4 finalising the work and if u take over the work of other partner due to any reason it’s auditors responsibility to review the work b4 signing the report and if any misstatements found in the financial statements and this negligence is proven then he will b held responsible.
