Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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 shortterm 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.
