    C. increase in assets and an increase in equity

    Explanation:

    When analyzing problems like this, just use the accounting equation as a guide:

    Assets = Liabilities + Equity

    That means this equation should always "equate" or be equal on both sides.

    The only choice that respects the accounting equation is letter C.

    ↑Assets = Liabilities + ↑Equity

    See, both sides had increased and the balance is maintained
