    b. Credit Treasury Stock $10,800.

    Explanation:

    The Journal entry is shown below:-

    Cash Dr, $6,000 (400 * $15)

    Retained Earnings Dr, $4,800

    To Treasury Stock $10,800 (400 * 27)

    (Being reissued shares is recorded)

    Here we debited the cash and retained earnings as it increased the cash and reduced the retained earning balance and we credited the treasury stock as it reduced the balance of treasury stock
