    No, you are not.

    During the year, what they did was (total)

    Dr. Supplies Expense 2,000
    Cr. Cash 2,000

    But, they have 500 left, so they should have only done it 1,500

    So you need to take out 500

    Dr. Supplies 500
    Cr. Supplies Expense 500

    You were almost there, you just mixed up which should be a debit and which should be a credit.
