    b. Deducted from the balance per the depositor's records

    Explanation:

    As while preparing the bank reconciliation statements, there are the items that are added and deducted in the company book accounts and the bank book accounts

    So in the given case, since the NSF check should be deducted from the depositor records or the company records as this derives that the check is returned by the bank but the same is not recorded in the company books so to balance the bank reconciliation statement we deduct it from the company books
