Solution

`"Current ratio =""Current Assets"/"Current Liabilities"`

1. A bill payable of Rs.9,000 was met on maturity will affect:

Trade Payables will reduce by Rs.9,000.

Cash will reduce by Rs.9,000.

Simultaneous decrease in current assets and current liabilities will improve current ratio.

2. Issue of shares of Rs.10.00.000 to vendor of Machinery will affect the following:

Increase in the balance of machinery

Increase in the amount of share capital

There is no affect to the current liabilities nor current assets. Thus, current ratio will remain unchanged.
