    this means that the US trade exports only $3billion worth of goods and imports $5 billion of goods. This means that there is a trade deficit in the US worth $2 billion

    The correct answer is c.) "It would run a balance of payments deficit of $2 billion." A balance of payments deficit basically means that you are spending more than you have in trade/exports. I.E. You are bringing importing more than you export. (value-wise).

    trade deficit relates only to the import and export. balance of payments deficit relates to import, export, as well as other monetary factors such as bonds, financial accounts, etc.
