Given info: Items of current asset and current liabilities

Explanation of Solution

In order to find the current position of a company, one need to analyze the working capital, current ratio, and acid-test ratio. Thus, in this problem, these ratios have been determined incorrectly. This is because, intangible assets and property, plant, and equipment have been included as part of current assets. But, they are non-current asset. When calculating quick assets, both numerator and denominator are incorrect. The denominator part do not include accrued liabilities. Thus, it must include both accounts and short-term notes payable and accrued liabilities. On the other hand, when numerator is concerned, it includes inventories, prepaid expenses, and property, plant, and equipment. Actually, these are not quick assets.

Current assets include cash, temporary investments, and accounts and notes receivable (net). Current liabilities include accounts and short-term notes payable. Thus, total current assets and total current liabilities are calculated below:

Current assets = (Cash + Temporary investments + Accounts and notes receivable (net) + Inventories + Prepaid expenses )=$102,000+$48,000+$120,000+$36,000+$24,000=$330,000

Current liabilities = (Accounts and short-term notes payable + Accrued liabilties)=$96,000+$204,000=$300,000

Quick Assets are those assets that are most liquid
