Emily1119 Why the answer is not A?
Earning per share is in in balance sheet in Audited report
vatsal92 @emily1119 Balance Sheet consists of Liabilities, assets and St. Equity.. Whereas earnings per share is solely based on income/earnings which is obtained from income statement.

And the EPS in audited reports is calculated from income statement itself and then shown in BS.
Fpenae EPS= Net income/nº of shares.
Net income appears in the Income Statement.
