In which kit did you find this question (and are you sure you have typed out the whole question correctly)?
I ask because it is rather strange as it appears because the maximum and minimum levels are not average levels 🙂
Acacia’s policy is aggressive because the long term working capital is greater than the long-term borrowing, which means that the extra is being financed by short-term borrowing which is more risky and more aggressive.
Birch is matching because the long-term working capital is always financed (‘matched’) but the long-term borrowing.
