Step 1

(a) Straight-line method: Under the straight-line method of depreciation, the same amount of depreciation is allocated every year over the estimated useful life of an asset.

Step 2

(b) Sum-of- the-years’ digits method: Sum-of-the years’ digits method determines the depreciation expense by multiplying the depreciable base and declining fraction.

Step 3

(c) Double-declining-balance method: It is an accelerated method of depreciation under which the depreciation declines in each successive year until the value of asset becomes zero. Under this met...
