Answer #1

**a.**

Current Ratio = Current Assets / Current Liablities

= 3.5 / 1.6

= 2.19

Quick ratio = (Current Assets - Inventory) / Current Liabilities

= (3.5 - 1.2) / 1.6

= 2.3 / 1.6

= 1.44

**b.**

New Current Ratio = (3.5-0.2) /(1.6-0.2)

= 3.3 / 1.4

= 2.36

Quick Ratio = (3.5-1.2-0.2) / (1.6-0.2)

2.1 / 1.4

1.5

If the current ratio or quick ratio increase means availability of current assets or Quick assets to pay off the current liablities increases, hence the real liquidity improves

**C**

New current ratio = (3.5-0.6) / (1.6-0.6)

= 2.9 /1

= 2.9

New Quick ratio = (3.5-1.2-0.6) / (1.6-0.6)

= 1.47 / 1

= 1.47

**D**

New current ratio = (3.5+1) /1.6

4.5 /1.6

= 2.81

New Quick ratio = (3.5-1.2+1) /1.6

= 3.3 /1.6

2.06
