current ratio = 3. 80 times

Acid-test ratio = 2 times

Explanation:

The current ratio is the sum of sum of current assets divided by current liabilities. It is used ti measures the the ability of Airline Accessories to meet its short - term obligation falling due within a year

Current ratio = 96 + 88 + 12 / (86 + 29)

= 3. 80 : 1

Acid test ratio also measures liquidity but with adjustment for risky current assets i. e inventory.

Acid test ratio = current asset - inventory / Current liabilities

= (96 + 88 + 12) / (86+29)

=2 : 1
