From the given data: Current Assets = Trade Receivables + Cash = $70 + 40 = 110$

step 3

Inventories = $100$

step 4

Current Liabilities = Trade Payables = $90$

step 5

Substituting the values into the formula: $\text{Acid Test Ratio} = \frac{110 - 100}{90} = \frac{10}{90} = \frac{1}{9} \approx 0.11$

C
