jamtime22 A&B essentially apply to the same thing, therefor C has to be it.
poomie83 the answer makes sense because asset t/o = sales/assets

the numerator is not Net Income as would be the case for ROA. And the use of accelerated depn will have no effect as both total assets and net income are lower
