There will be no impact. Ans is C. CR = CA/ CL 10% reduction in creditors means 10% reduction in CL (Acct Payable reduce by 10%) and also 10% reduction in CA (cash goes out), so numerator and denominator reduce by same amounts and thus no impact will be there.

Hey Guys!

Okay, in questions like this, take real numbers to help you out. CR=1.5
I will take CA=300 and CL=200.
Now, lets say 10% of the creditors is \$5
now CA=295 CL=195 CR =1.51
Hence it INCREASES..
Now, if the CR was <1 the answer changes..

Hope this helps!!
