    I would go with option 2 This is because, company A has more current assets than current liabilities, and so it would have sufficient working capital to meet its short-term needs. It's borrowing more than company B, so therefore has more leverage. And company A seems to be earning more than Comany B, but you can't tell by just current assets and liablities alone.
