Given that the mark up is 42% (of cost), then the cost of sales must be 100/142 x 193,200 = 136,056.
The inventory fell by 13,200 over the year, and so only the remainder of the cost of sales needed to be purchased, and 136,056 – 13,200 = 122,856 (which to the nearest 1,000 is 123,000).

i think it should be cogs + closing inventory to get purchase rather than subtract

The question does not give us the closing inventory, only the decrease over the year. My previous answer is correct.

I don’t understand why at the question number 5, the goods returned need to be added, as I think on 31 May we did sell that 700 already, and in next days we receive back 700 so we have to minus 700 on 31 May? Thank you Sir

We returned the goods to the supplier. So on 31 May we had more than on 4 June because on 31 May we had not sent them back to the supplier.

Can you kindly break down question 4, how do you arrive at the the 27.8 % answer. its quite unclear.

The revenue is understated and so the correct revenue is 10,000 higher. Higher revenue also means that the profit will be 10,000 higher.
The closing inventory was overstated and lower closing inventory means that the profit will be lower by 5,000 (but this does not affect the revenue).
Therefore the correct revenue is 90,000 and the correct profit is 25,000.

sir, what is the meaning of inventory decreased?

It means that the closing inventory is lower than the opening inventory.
