In future you must ask in the Ask the Tutor Forum if you want me to answer – this forum is for students to help each other.
Why are you asking a question for which you do not have an answer? You should be using a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA Approved Publishers – they have answers and explanations
FIFO will give a higher value for inventory because it is using the costs of the most recent purchases and if prices have been rising then the recent purchases will have been at a higher cost.
A higher value for inventory will mean that the cost of sales is lower and therefore the profit will be higher.
