Please do not set test questions and expect an answer!!
You must have an answer in the same book in which you found the question, and so you should use this forum to ask about which part of the answer you do not understand – then I will try and help you.
The average sales transaction value is the total sales revenue divided by the total number of transactions.
The current ratio is the period end current assets (inventory plus receivables plus cash) divided by the period end current liabilities.
The acid test ratio is the same as the current ratio, but leaving out the inventory.
