Have you watched all of the lectures on working capital?
You can calculate average receivables ( 2/12 x $4.2M)
You can calculate average payables (1/12 x $1.89M)
You know the operating cycle is 3 months and therefore the inventory period is 2 months, so you can calculate average inventory (2/12 x $1.89M).
Once you have these, you are able to calculate what the overdraft is, because total current assets / total current liabilities = 1.4
