RCapistrano What is not a nonoperating item?

Not + non- (double negatives)= positive (i.e., what is an operating item?) -- leads to choice "None of these".

Sale of a segment is Unusual or Infrequent. Answer should be except i)
Gains and losses arising when a company sells and asset OR part of a business ---> Unusual or infrequent.

I is considered an operating item and its gain or loss is included in PRE-TAX income (above the line:

D-E-A- are considered non-operating items so the gain or loss that they result in are included AFTER TAX (below the line)

Cost of good sold
Blah blah blah
I- unusual of infrequent events
Pre-tax income
D- Discontinued operations
E- Extraordinary events
A- Accounting changes:
After tax income

I think that's right at least ha
