II. Operating income/Annual interest expense = Interest coverage
III. Operating income/Average total assets = Return on equity
A. I and II
B. I and III
C. All are false.
Explanation: I. Short-term creditors' primary interest is the firm's current position, which includes factors such as working capital, accounts receivable turnover rate, inventory turnover rate, operating cycle, current ratio, quick ratio, and unused lines of credit.

II. Interest coverage, or times interest earned, is a common measure of creditors' safety (particularly bondholders).
