Additional Information: 
(i) Inventories include Loose Tools of Rs. 30,000. 
(ii) Other Current Assets consist of prepaid expenses. 
Solution: 
(i) Current Ratio 
Current Assets = Inventories (except Loose Tools) + (Trade Receivables – Provision for Bad Debts) + Cash and Cash 
Equivalents + Other Current Assets 
= Rs. 1,70,000 + (Rs. 70,000 – 5,000) + Rs. 3,80,000 + Rs. 1,48,000 = Rs. 7,63,000 
Current Liabilities = Short-term Borrowings + Trade Payables + Short-term Provisions (except Provision for Bad Debts) = Rs. 
3,00,000 + Rs. 60,000 + Rs. 45,000 = Rs. 4,05,000 
Current Ratio = Current Assets / Current Liabilities = (Rs.) 7,00,000 / Rs. 4,05,000= 1.88:1 
(ii) Quick Ratio 
Quick Assets = Current Assets – Prepaid Expenses – Inventories (except Loose Tools) = Rs. 7,63,000 – Rs. 1,48,000 – * 
1,70,000 = Rs. 4,45,000 
Quick Ratio = Quick Assets / Current Liabilities  = Rs. 4,45,000 / (Rs.) 4,05,000= 1.099:1

Ques 3 
The Current Assets of a firm are Rs. 8,00,000 and Current Liabilities are Rs. 3,00,000. The firm is interested in maintaining 
a Current Ratio of 2:1, by acquiring some current assets on credit. State the amount of current assets that should be 
acquired. 
Solution: 
Let the amount of current assets to be acquired = x 
 
    
 
Current Ratio = Current Assets / Current Liabilities  = 8,00,000 + x / 3,00,000 + x  = 2 
Or, 8,00,000 + x = 6,00,000 + 2x 
i. e. 8,00,000 – 6,00,000 = 2x – x 
i.e. x or Amount of current assets to be acquired =Rs. 2,00,000 
 
Ques 4 
A business has a current ratio of 3:1 and quick ratio of 1.2:1. If the working capital is Rs. 1,80,000. Calculate the total Current 
Assets and value of Stock.  
Solution: 
Current Ratio = Current Assets / current Liabilities  = 3 
Current Assets = 3 Current Liabilities 
Given: Working Capital = Rs. 1,80,000 
It means: Current Assets – Current Liabilities = Rs. 1,80,000 
{ Working Capital = Current Assets – Current Liabilities} Or, 3 Current Liabilities* – Current Liabilities = Rs. 1,80,000 {"Current 
Assets = 3 Current Liabilities} 
i.e. Current Liabilities = Rs. 90,000 
i.e. Current Assets = 3 Current Liabilities = 3 x 90,000 = Rs. 2,70,000 
Quick Ratio = Quick Assets / Current Liabilities  = 1.2 
It means: Quick Assets = 1.2 Current Liabilities = 1.2 x 90,000 = Rs. 1,08,000 
Given: Stock = Current Assets – Quick Assets 
Stock = 2,70,000 -1,08,000 = Rs. 1,62,000 
 
Ques 5 
A firm has Current Ratio of 4:1 and Quick Ratio of 2.5 :1. Assuming Inventories are Rs. 22,500; find out total Current Assets 
and total Current Liabilities. {CBSE, Delhi 200 
Solution: 
Current Ratio = Current Assets (CA) / Current Liabilities (CL) = 4 
Current Assets =4 CL 
Quick Ratio – Quick Assets / Current Liabilities  = 2.5 
Liquid Assets =2.5 CL 
Liquid Assets = Current Assets – Stock 
Or, 2.5 CL* =4 CL**- 22,500 
{'Liquid Assets = 2.5 CL; **Current Assets = 4 CL} i.e. CL or Current Liabilities = Rs. 15,000 
i.e. Current Assets = 4 Current Liabilities = 4 x 15,000 = Rs. 60,000 
 
Ques 6 
a. Calculate Debt to Equity Ratio from the following information: 
Particulars  Amt. (Rs.) 
Shareholders' Funds 10.00,000 
Total Debts 15,00,000 
Current Liabilities 2,50,000 
Solution: 
Debt to Equity Ratio =Debt / Equity 
Debt = Total Debts – Current Liabilities = Rs. 15,00,000 – Rs. 2,50,000 = Rs. 12,50,000 Equity (Shareholders' Funds) = Rs. 
10,00 000 
Debt to Equity Ratio = Rs. 12,50,000 / Rs. 10,00,000= 1.25:1 
 
b. Total Debt = Rs. 12,00,000; Current Assets = Rs. 3,00,000; Working Capital = Rs. 1,00,000; Shareholders' 
Funds = Rs. 5,00,000 
Solution: 
Debt to Equity Ratio = Debt / Equity 
Debt = Total Debt – Current Liabilities** = Rs. 12,00,000 – Rs. 2,00,000 = Rs. 10,00,000 
"Current Liabilities = Current Assets – Working Capital – Rs. 3,00,000 – Rs. 1,00,000 = Rs. 2,00,000 
Equity (Shareholders' Funds) = Rs. 5,00,000 
Debt to Equity Ratio =Rs. 10,00,000 / Rs. 5,00,000 = 2:1 
 
c. Total Assets = Rs. 10,00,000; Current Liabilities = Rs. 2,00,000; Equity = Rs. 3,00,000

Ques 3 
The Current Assets of a firm are Rs. 8,00,000 and Current Liabilities are Rs. 3,00,000. The firm is interested in maintaining 
a Current Ratio of 2:1, by acquiring some current assets on credit. State the amount of current assets that should be 
acquired. 
Solution: 
Let the amount of current assets to be acquired = x 
 
    
 
Current Ratio = Current Assets / Current Liabilities  = 8,00,000 + x / 3,00,000 + x  = 2 
Or, 8,00,000 + x = 6,00,000 + 2x 
i. e. 8,00,000 – 6,00,000 = 2x – x 
i.e. x or Amount of current assets to be acquired =Rs. 2,00,000

It means: Current Assets – Current Liabilities = Rs. 1,80,000 
{ Working Capital = Current Assets – Current Liabilities} Or, 3 Current Liabilities* – Current Liabilities = Rs. 1,80,000 {"Current 
Assets = 3 Current Liabilities} 
i.e. Current Liabilities = Rs. 90,000 
i.e. Current Assets = 3 Current Liabilities = 3 x 90,000 = Rs. 2,70,000 
Quick Ratio = Quick Assets / Current Liabilities  = 1.2 
It means: Quick Assets = 1.2 Current Liabilities = 1.2 x 90,000 = Rs. 1,08,000 
Given: Stock = Current Assets – Quick Assets 
Stock = 2,70,000 -1,08,000 = Rs. 1,62,000 
 
Ques 5 
A firm has Current Ratio of 4:1 and Quick Ratio of 2.5 :1. Assuming Inventories are Rs. 22,500; find out total Current Assets 
and total Current Liabilities. {CBSE, Delhi 200 
Solution: 
Current Ratio = Current Assets (CA) / Current Liabilities (CL) = 4 
Current Assets =4 CL 
Quick Ratio – Quick Assets / Current Liabilities  = 2.5 
Liquid Assets =2.5 CL 
Liquid Assets = Current Assets – Stock 
Or, 2.5 CL* =4 CL**- 22,500 
{'Liquid Assets = 2.5 CL; **Current Assets = 4 CL} i.e. CL or Current Liabilities = Rs. 15,000 
i.e. Current Assets = 4 Current Liabilities = 4 x 15,000 = Rs. 60,000

3,80,000 and Total Debt of Rs. 3,00,000. Calculate Debt to Equity Ratio. 
Solution: 
Quick Ratio = Quick Assets / Current Liabilities  =  2.2 
Quick Assets = 2.2 Current Liabilities 
Working Capital = (Quick Assets + Inventories) – Current Liabilities 
{: Current Assets = Quick Assets + Inventories) 
2,00,000 = 2.2 Current Liabilities + Rs. 80,000 (inventories) – Current Liabilities 
Current Liabilities = Rs. 1,00,000 
Debt = Total Debt – Current Liabilities 
= Rs. 3,00,000 – Rs. 1,00,000 = Rs. 2,00,000 
Equity = Total Assets – Total Debt 
= Rs. 3,80,000 – Rs. 3,00,000 = Rs. 80,000

(b) Trade Receivables  70,000 
(c) Cash and Cash Equivalents  3,80,000 
(d) Other Current Assets  1,48,000 
Total  21,98,000 
Additional Information: 
(i) Inventories include Loose Tools of Rs. 30,000. 
(ii) Other Current Assets consist of prepaid expenses. 
Solution: 
(i) Current Ratio 
Current Assets = Inventories (except Loose Tools) + (Trade Receivables – Provision for Bad Debts) + Cash and Cash 
Equivalents + Other Current Assets 
= Rs. 1,70,000 + (Rs. 70,000 – 5,000) + Rs. 3,80,000 + Rs. 1,48,000 = Rs. 7,63,000 
Current Liabilities = Short-term Borrowings + Trade Payables + Short-term Provisions (except Provision for Bad Debts) = Rs. 
3,00,000 + Rs. 60,000 + Rs. 45,000 = Rs. 4,05,000 
Current Ratio = Current Assets / Current Liabilities = (Rs.) 7,00,000 / Rs. 4,05,000= 1.88:1

Ques 3 
The Current Assets of a firm are Rs. 8,00,000 and Current Liabilities are Rs. 3,00,000. The firm is interested in maintaining 
a Current Ratio of 2:1, by acquiring some current assets on credit. State the amount of current assets that should be 
acquired. 
Solution: 
Let the amount of current assets to be acquired = x 
 
    
 
Current Ratio = Current Assets / Current Liabilities  = 8,00,000 + x / 3,00,000 + x  = 2 
Or, 8,00,000 + x = 6,00,000 + 2x 
i. e. 8,00,000 – 6,00,000 = 2x – x 
i.e. x or Amount of current assets to be acquired =Rs. 2,00,000

Ques 9 
ABC Ltd. has 10% Debentures of Rs. 7,00,000. Its profit after interest and after tax is Rs. 1,68,000. Calculate Interest 
Coverage Ratio, if tax rate is 40%. 
Solution: 
Interest Coverage Ratio =Profit before Interest and Tax 
Interest on Long – Term Debt 
Profit before Interest and Tax = Rs. 3,50,000 
(WN:1)
 
Interest on Debentures = Rs. 7,00,000 x 10/100 = Rs. 70,000 
Interest Coverage Ratio = Rs. 3,50,000 / Rs. 70,000 = 5 Times 
Working Notes: 
1. Calculation of Profit before interest and Tax: It can be calculated in 2 steps: 
Step 1. Calculate "Profit after Interest and before Tax". Let Profit after Interest and before Tax be x. 
It means, Tax = 40% of x. 
 
    
 
It means: x – 40% of x = Rs. 1,68,000; or 60% of x = Rs. 1,68,000 or x = Rs. 2,80,000 
Step 2. Calculate "Profit before Interest and Tax": 
Profit before Interest and Tax = Profit after Interest and before Tax + Interest = 2,80,000 + 70,000 
= Rs. 3,50,000. 
 
Ques 10 
From the following, calculate Inventory Turnover Ratio: 
 Amt. (Rs.) 
Opening Inventory 15,000 
Revenue from Operations 2,00,000 
Closing Inventory 25,000 
Gross Profit 25% of Cost 
Solution: 
Inventory Turnover Ratio = Cost of Revenue from Operations / Average Inventory 
Let: Cost of Revenue from Operations = x 
It means: Gross Profit = 25% of x 
We know: = Cost of Revenue from Operations + Gross Profit = Revenue from Operations 
If means, x + 25% of x = Rs. 2,00,000 
x or Cost of Revenue from Operations = Rs. 1,60,000 
Average Inventory = Opening Inventory + Closing Inventory / 2 
= RS.15,000 + RS.25,000 /2 = Rs. 20,000 
Inventory Turnover Ratio = Rs. 1,60,000 /  Rs. 20,000 = 8 Times 
 
Ques 11 
Cost of Revenue from Operations = Rs. 3,00,000; Inventory Turnover Ratio = 3 Times. Calculate the value of Opening 
Inventory and Closing Inventory in each of the following alternative cases: 
Case 1. If Closing Inventory was Rs. 1,00,000 more than the Opening Inventory. 
Case 2. If Closing Inventory was 3 times of the Opening Inventory. 
Case 3. If Closing Inventory was 3 times more than the Opening Inventory. 
Case 4. If Opening Inventory was 1/3
rd
 of the Closing Inventory. 
Solution: 
Inventory Turnover Ratio = Cost of Revenue From Operations / Average Inventory 
Cost of Revenue from Operations = Rs. 3,00,000 
3 = Rs. 3,00,000 / Average Inventory 
Average Inventory =Rs. 3,00,000 / 3= Rs. 1,00,000 
Case 1. If Closing Inventory is Rs. 1,00,000 more than the Opening Inventory 
Let Opening Inventory = x 
Closing Inventory = x + Rs. 1,00,000 
Average Inventory = Opening Inventory + Closing Inventory / 2 
Rs. 1,00,000 = × + × + (Rs.) 1,00,000 / 22 
Rs. 2,00,000 = 2 x + Rs. 1,00,000 
x or Opening Inventory = Rs. 50,000 
 Closing Inventory = Rs. 50,000 + Rs. 1,00,000 = Rs. 1,50,000 
Case 2. If Closing Inventory was 3 times of the Opening Inventory 
Let Opening Inventory = x 
Closing Inventory = 3x 
Average Inventory = Opening Inventory + Closing Inventory / 2 
Rs. 1,00,000 =× + 3× / 2 
Rs. 2,00,000 = 4x 
x or Opening Inventory = Rs. 50,000 
Closing Inventory = 3x Rs. 50,000 = Rs. 1,50,000 
Case 3. If Closing Inventory was 3 times more than the Opening Inventory 
Let Opening Inventory = x 
Closing Inventory = x + 3x = 4x 
Average Inventory= Opening Inventory + Closing Inventory /  2
